Coles Bay

Coles Bay - East Coast - Tasmania

Coles Bay is situated at the gateway to Freycinet National Park providing a visually spectacular backdrop of pristine coastal scenery, vibrant wildflowers and prolific wildlife to this Tasmanian seaside village. A two hour drive from Launceston, on Tassie's east coast, Freycinet National Park is the 'go to' destination for a veritable spring cleaning of the soul. With a reputation that is unsurpassed when it comes to taking in views of pink granite mountains, rocky outcrops, forests and the 'piece de resistance', Wineglass Bay, this fascinating location has been described as heaven on earth.

Freycinet National Park plays host to one of the most famous attractions in Tasmania where holiday makers and locals make a deliberate pilgrimage to experience Wineglass Bay and the crisp sparkle of the sea. Kick your boots off for a well earned wander along the pure white sandy beach after being lured along the trail or take to the seas aboard Freycinet Sea Cruises. Endowed with all of those faculties that can make the world a garden of enchantment visitors are offered an incredible range of experiences to take in the full splendour of this National Park.

For those who have a penchant for the outdoors, you will be challenged to get it all done with mountain biking, beach camping, rock climbing, bushwalking, abseiling, checking out the local wildlife, including the Tasmanian Devils, and if that is not enough grab your towel and head out on the water. Surf, swim, fish or dive, take your pick of how you prefer to experience the sea. Get your snorkel on and mix with the other locals or jump in a kayak and paddle the turquoise waters, better still, board a boat and cruise over them.

There is no end to the fun in Freycinet National Park!
