The east coast offers sublime scenery, with sensational beaches and towering cliffs backed by wooded hills. Pause at Marion Bay for a stroll on an empty beach – the only footprints might well be yours. Visit the Copping Colonial and Convict Exhibition for a fascinating insight into the harsh lives of convicts over a century ago, or pick up some super-fresh seafood from the Freycinet Marine Farm.
The Freycinet National Park is very special, with pink granite cliffs and secluded bays home to amazing birdlife. Recognised as an important natural reserve since 1916, it offers numerous walks, mostly very easy going and on straightforward terrain. The Hazards Range glows pink at sunset and the sublime Moulting Lagoon is home to black swans, eagles and all kinds of migratory birds.
The quaint little resort of Coles Bay sits just on the edge of the National Park and you can enjoy the pure sands and clear waters of the iconic Wineglass Bay. Here you can snap some of the most photographed views in Tasmania.
