Orford is a one of the first places you should stop on your east coast journey, and take a moment to let a gentle change of pace wash over you. This is a classic Tasmanian fishing town, located at the mouth of the Prosser River and surrounded by great beaches, historic sites and idyllic fishing and boating spots just waiting to be discovered.
Take a break here for a coffee and snack, throw a line in from the Prosser River Bridge or visit one of the nearby beaches—perfect for swimming, surfing or taking in the views over Mercury Passage towards Maria Island. Take the scenic cliff walk from East Shelley to Spring Beach or walk the convict road beside the Prosser River to the ruins of Paradise probation station.
Pack a picnic and head to Thumbs lookout, visit a local winery, play a round of golf or take the Wielangta Forest Drive—a gravel forestry road that leads through tall eucalypt production forests and pockets of remnant rainforest to Sandspit Reserve (4WD only).
