The East Coast of Tassie offers so many options for the discerning tourist... Whether you’re a foodie, a wine-lover, an adventurer, or just looking for some spectacular locations for a day of touring… the East Coast has you covered. Below is just a small sample of what is on offer in the local area:
East Coast Wineries Tour including the iconic Devil’s Corner Vineyard – Devil’s corner vineyard is an easy 15 minute drive from Freycinet Vista (Sherbourne Rd Apslawn). The iconic Devil’s Corner lookout tower offers spectacular views of the Great Oyster Bay area, and the wine and cellar door food offerings all make for a lovely, relaxing afternoon activity, whilst barely having to leave home.
The Wine Glass Bay Walk (and Freycinet National Park) – the iconic wine glass bay walk takes is 11.5 kilometres long and will take you to the iconic Wine Glass Bay look out. If you’re up for going a little further, you can also walk along the pristine beach which is pretty special. The park is home to an abundance of bird and wildlife. You’ll find it hard to take a bad picture.
Melshell Oyster Shack - If you like oysters “Melshell" on Yellow Sand Banks Rd is only 300m from your current location and sells fresh oysters daily. There is a shucking knife in the house.
Freycinet Air Scenic Tours – If walking doesn’t float your boat, why not Take in the scenery from above. The pale white sand beaches and rolling pink-granite mountains will take your breath away.
Bicheno – visit the lovely seaside town of Bicheno and buy crayfish off the wharf. Go rock hopping and check out the blowhole and keep your eyes peeled for seals, and at dusk the penguins will usually put in an appearance as well.
Kate’s Berry Farm just south of Swansea has lovely views & serves morning teas as well as selling berries.
Friendly beaches & Bay of Fires are beautiful if you feel like a drive & Douglas Aspley National park is not too far away if you feel like swapping beach for bush walks.
Morris’ - If you’re in Swansea visit Morris’s store. It was integral to the development of the area in the 1800’s & sent supplies on horse drawn drays along Nine Mile Beach & across on a barge to the township of Coles Bay. It is still like a big country store & is the better of the 2 supermarket in Swansea (although the one at the southern end is open longer hours).
If you feel like a stroll in Swansea after visiting one of the coffee shops there is a lovely conservation track around the point from the jetty beach (near the golf club).
There is a drawer of information in the sideboard which will give you more ideas.
