Fishing from shore – Friendly Beaches (north)

Friendly Beaches North is a spectacular secluded beach that you can often have to yourself with excellent surf fishing. It is also a popular surfing beach.
The dirt road that leads to Friendly Beaches can be found 26 kilometres north of the town of Cole’s Bay. You’ll have to drive a few minutes on a dirt road to get to the carpark so make sure you have a reliable car. From the carpark, it’s just five more minutes walking to the beach.

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania's deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
