Tasmanian East Coast with its mild climate and pristine beaches and coastline offers many attractions that lure travellers from around Australia and the world. The region encompasses:



  • Bicheno
    — a picturesque seaside resort town, with a mild climate throughout the year and long white sandy beaches, against the clear blue ocean.
  • Coles Bay
    — the village of Coles Bay overlooks Oyster Bay and is at the entrance to the popular Freycinet National Park, against a backdrop of the granite outcrops known as ‘The Hazards’.
  • Orford
    — a popular fishing destination, Orford lies at the mouth of the Prosser River.
  • St Helens
    — known as the game-fishing capital of Tasmania, St Helens overlooks Georges Bay.
  • St Marys
    — a small township that is nestled beneath the rocky outcrop, St Patrick's Head. There are some spectacular views from South Sister Peak, Elephant Pass, and St Patrick's Head.
  • Swansea
    — with Maria Island just to the south, the historic Swansea overlooks Great Oyster Bay and the Freycinet National Park. A great place for some wine tasting and yummy local seafood.
  • Triabunna
    — a scenic port town and the base for many crayfish and fishing boats.  A popular locale for both bay and deep sea fishing, and recreational water sports. It is also the departure point for visiting Maria Island National Park.

Whale Watching
• May - July / September - December
• Whale watching is a popular pastime with whales being seen between May and July, and September and December. Both humpback whales and southern right whales travel along the Tasmania east coast, including Frederick Henry Bay, Great Oyster Bay and Storm Bay. They can also be seen passing Bruny Island, with some stopping to take shelter in Adventure Bay. On occasion, other whale species including the pygmy right whale, minke whale and the orca can also be spotted as they migrate past the island.
