Head North on the Weymouth Road and turn left down Tam Oshanter Road. Follow this to the end. By memory it turn into a dirt track just near the last couple of houses before you turn right to drive up the point. You can normally park just near the boat ramp about a third of the way up the point.

generally ful left hand point break that occassionally barrels. The take off has a nice long hitable wall that fades to a couple of nice cutback sections, then walls up on the inside allowing for a few nice turns. On bigger days the wave finnishes off with a little fast barrel section past a boat ramp.
Catch this wave when you think its going to swing off-shore (Southerly) when there is at least 2-2.5m of swell in Bass Strait with an element of North in it. The weather systems move really fast over Tassie so you need to be quick. It's normally worth hanging around for the whole day when you think the wind will swing southerly.
A good regular wave when the swell is getting into Bass Straight. It's especially convenient if you are based in Launceston.
