Swansea - Cities, Towns and Localities
Steeped in history and nestled on the shores of Great Oyster Bay, overlooking the Freycinet National Park is the township of Swansea, the ideal place from which to explore the east coast region. There are sheltered beaches safe for swimming in including the Swan River and Bay. There is also fishing opportunities in the river, bay and ocean, as well as a variety of water activities.

As the oldest rural municipality (Glamorgan) in Australia, there is plenty of reminders both in Swansea and the surrounding area of the early settlers, with many of the historic buildings still in use.

There are several vineyards located to the north of Swansea, where you can sample and purchase the wines.

Check out our range of Swansea accommodation and East Coast accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
