Breathtaking scenery, a wealth of outdoor activities and a great climate make the eastern coast of Tasmania a haven for nature lovers and adventure sports enthusiasts. Activities on offer include hiking, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking, quad biking, diving and surfing.

Bicheno – One of the most popular destinations on the eastern coast, Bicheno is a family friendly town with great beaches, fantastic fishing and excellent eateries. Visit the nearby Governor Island Marine Reserve to see its kelp covered reefs and sponge gardens, or join a penguin tour and get up close to the region’s wild residents.
Bay of Fires – The Bay of Fires gets its name from the bright orange lichen that covers the boulders which line the beach. As well as this dramatic backdrop, the Bay of Fires also boasts crystal clear water and white sand, making it a great destination for a day by the sea.
Maria Island National Park – Not only is Maria Island a great place for hiking, bird watching and cycling, it’s also a fantastic destination for anyone who wants to learn more about Australia’s past. Visit the Darlington Probation Station to find out about the convicts who were shipped to Tasmania in the 19th century.
Coles Bay – Home of the famous Wineglass Bay and boasting an excellent choice of beaches and easy access to the Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Go hiking, biking or bird watching or hit the water to try your hand at kayaking or sailing.
The landmarks and sights are as varied as the landscape. Explore the area’s origins and learn about the convicts who were transported to Tasmania, see the dramatic orange rocks in the Bay of Fires or visit the aquamarine waters and white sands of the spectacular Wineglass Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula. The characterful towns that line the East Coast are also well worth a look during your time on the area, with St Helens, Triabunna and Swansea among the liveliest.
If you’re looking for outdoor activities and adventure, Tasmania’s eastern coast will not disappoint.
