The journey along this coast includes pristine sandy beaches, azure waters with breath-taking ocean views, distinctive pink granite peaks, historic sites, small friendly towns and villages and accessible national parks.
In Tasmania, it's the best coast to enjoy activities for all ages - bushwalking, bird watching, swimming, surfing, abseiling, cycling, sea kayaking, canoeing, quad biking, diving, cruises, wildlife viewing, penguin tours, scenic flights, shopping, golf, bowls, ocean and river fishing or simply relaxing with a glass of fine east coast wine and letting the cares of the world go by.
Activities along the East Coast
It's also a coast for all seasons. In the spring, the countryside is dotted with colourful wildflowers and the summers are beautiful full of the joys that the beach, the bush and the annual holidays bring. Autumn days are usually sunny, balmy and perfect for any outdoor activity. If it is a bit cool or it does rain, curl up with a book by an open fire. The Weatherzone site.
Accommodation options suit every budget and include camp sites (some free), back-packer hostels, caravan and cabin parks, comfortable self catering houses, unique B & B’s, motels and luxury resorts.
Famous for fresh seafood – rock lobster, scallops, mussels and oysters and an abundance of fish species from deep sea game fish to succulent inshore whitefish – there are restaurants and cafes in the towns and villages happy to sell you a dish of the finest harvest fresh from the sea. As with many parts of this island state, you can savour superb local food and wine almost all year round.
First Free Wi-Fi region in Australia…. The East Coast region from Buckland in the south through to St Helens in the North has free public Wi-Fi sites at seven ‘hot-spots’ along the coast. Aimed specifically at the travelling visitors, the service provides free access to East Coast promotional websites and internet services.
