Freycinet & East Coast


The east coast village of Coles Bay sits beneath pink granite mountains at the entrance to Freycinet National Park. With a small permanent population of less than 200 people, the town caters to local and visitor needs.

The Coles Bay area is one of Tasmania's most popular holiday spots for visitors and locals. It overlooks crystal clear Oyster Bay - ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, boating and fishing. In this region you can visit the world renowned Freycinet National Park, Tasmanian Seafers memorial or vinyards such as the Spring Vale Vineyards or the family run vineyard and winery; Freycinet Vineyards. The Coombend Wine centre offers a wonderful view of the Tasmanian east coast.

If a holiday relaxing by white, sandy beaches, dining on fresh seafood and playing leisurely games of golf sounds appealing, you’ll love Bicheno. More than 700 people live in the town, and water’s its lifeblood. Crayfish, abalone and Australian salmon are often brought ashore with the daily fishing catch. You can explore the coast at your own pace in a sea kayak, or pick up some local knowledge on a guided boat trip.

Marine life and seabirds abound in Governor Island Marine Reserve - stay dry in a glass-bottomed boat or scuba dive amid sheer rock walls, deep fissures, caves, sponges and sea whips. Tasmania is considered one of the best temperate water dive sites in the world.
