The Forestier Peninsula is a peninsula of the Australian island state of Tasmania. It is connected to the mainland at East Bay Neck, near the town of Dunalley at its northern end. At Eaglehawk Neck, the southern end of the Forestier Peninsula is connected to the Tasman Peninsula.

The peninsula measures about 20 by 15 kilometres, and is a part of the Tasman municipality

The peninsula was severely impacted by Bushfire in January 2013, with significant property damage, particularly in and around the hamlet of Murdunna.
