Eaglehawk Neck is a narrow isthmus connecting the Tasman Peninsula to mainland Tasmania. Locally known as the Neck the isthmus itself is around 400 metres long and under 30 metres wide at its narrowest point. It forms a natural gateway to the peninsula that was utilised by the British in 1830s when a line of dogs was chained to posts across the neck to warn of any convicts attempting to escape the prison at Port Arthur. The area was heavily patrolled by soldiers, and the guards' quarters still remains as a museum. Many attempts were made by prisoners to escape via the neck, including those of Martin Cash.  ...

Located 20 km north of Cape Portland (north east tip of Tasmania) by sea and 151 km from Launceston by air, Flinders Island is the largest of the Furneaux group of islands which lie at the eastern end of Bass Strait separating Tasmania from Victoria. It is about 29 km wide at its widest point and 64 km long. The island was probably part of the land bridge which joined Tasmania to the mainland. Bass strait was formed as a result of the melting of ice after the last ice age and consequently Flinders and Cape Barren became islands and the Aborigines of Tasmania were cut off from their mainland counterparts....
