Fortescue Bay is a sheltered Bay with a beautiful white sandy beach, set against heavily forested hills, situated 18 kilometres from Port Arthur. Access is via 12 kilometres of gravel road. The Bay is a great destination for bushwalks, boating, kayaking, diving, swimming and camping with two distinct camping areas.
The Banksia campground is made up of 24 shaded sites situated directly behind the beautiful Fortescue Bay Beach. This site is predominantly for tent based family camping.

fireplaces on each site and a small shop facility for basic camping needs, ice and firewood.
