East Coast - Tasmania
Old fashioned and relaxing is one way to describe the East Coast of Tasmania. Pristine sandy beaches, farmland , bushland, and small quaint fishing villages.
Near Bicheno is excellent underwater adventures and the history of beautiful Maria Island is superb. It all adds to the wonder of the area, not forgetting the unforgettable Freycinet Peninsula. This is a great place to step back in time and relax with family , friends or for couples on honeymoons.
An area of history, picturesque beaches, rugged gorges and headlands, and tranquil forests. From the adventure of fantastic white water rafting to relaxing or swimming on a sheltered secluded beach the East Coast offers a wide variety of attractions.
There are five National Parks in the region, Tasmania's biggest ski resort, at Ben Lomond, and some of the oldest sandstone buildings in Australia. Some of the most scenic coastal walks in Tasmania are in this area along with incredible fresh and saltwater fishing.
