Tasmania's East Coast
The east coast of Tasmania is known to have the finest weather in the state, and is often called "Tasmania's Suncoast".
White sandy beaches line the east coast, and Tasmania's most-visited National Park, Freycinet National Park is in the area. Coles Bay is a popular camping area on the edge of the park for those who want to `get away from it all'; alternatively, venture inside the park to spectacular Wineglass Bay.
Bay of Fires
The Bay of Fires on Tasmania’s East Coast extends from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north. Enjoy sumptuous meals created from fresh Tasmanian produce; experience the best practice in sustainable tourism; and stay in unique accommodation including the award-winning Bay of Fires Lodge. Bay of Fires is a wonderful remote landscape offering an awe-inspiring escape with beautiful flora and fauna just awaiting your discovery.
Discover Freycinet National Park on foot, following a steep but well designed ascent to the iconic view from Wineglass Bay Lookout. The turquoise water may entice you to follow the trail down to the dazzling white sands of Wineglass Bay. From here, you can head along the Isthmus Track to Hazards Beach or head back the same way.
Wine Glass Bay
Coles Bay, Tasmania sits at the foot of the granite mountains known as the Hazards and on the edge of the world-renowned Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay, about two and 1/2 hours drive from Hobart and Launceston on the east coast of Tasmania.
Facilities in Coles Bay or Freycinet range from luxury accommodation and gourmet restaurants to wilderness camping and self-catering. Freycinet National Park is home to the only interpretation centre on the east coast of Tasmania.
