Coles Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula are located on Tasmania’s spectacular East Coast. With a rich history, and a unique natural environment this special part of the Australian coast is a must while visiting our island state. Not only is the area home to the world renowned Wineglass Bay but it boasts other top spots like Friendly Beaches, the Hazards Range, Cape Tourville, Moulting Lagoon and a whole host of interesting places that stay with you well after you have left.
The Freycinet Peninsula juts out from the East Coast of Tasmania. To get here you simply turn off the Tasman Highway onto the Coles Bay Road. The next 28 kms gives you options to stop at Friendly Beaches, Moulting Lagoon, or jump on a scenic flight. You will know when you are close to the township when you see the towering granite mountains of the Hazards Range that protect the sheltered waters of Coles Bay, part of Great Oyster Bay. There is plenty to do once you get here from sampling world class oysters and seafood, to taking a quad bike or sea kayaking tour into the National Park, cruise around to Wineglass Bay, or relax on a guided tour of the local wineries for an afternoon. You have a choice of places to stay including luxury resorts, hosted B & Bs, welcoming self catering holiday houses and villas or camping near the beach. Reward yourself after a day of exploring at one of our cafes or restaurants serving locally roasted coffee or fresh fish and chips.
