The North East of Tasmania
The light is different in the North East—a kaleidoscope of sparkling blue oceans, white sandy beaches, rolling green pastures, rich red soils, ancient forest greens and the steely grey of precipitous mountains. The ancient landscapes of North East Tasmania offer a spectacular diversity of landforms and ecosystems.
Explore expanses of untouched coastline, aligned with a patchwork of farmlands, pristine forests and spectacular waterfalls. Breathe in the clean fresh air. Escape to nature in Mount William National Park, Mount Victoria, Blue Tiers or Bay of Fires. Experience how the power of nature and Aboriginal heritage come together at Musselroe Bay’s Wind Farm, Tebrakunna visitor centre and Eddystone Point. Discover North East Tasmania as a premier destination for adventure—mountain biking, hiking, motor biking, fishing and some of the world’s best golf at Barnbougle.
Stay awhile, slow down. Explore North East Tasmania’s rich arts and heritage. Visit our galleries and craft studios; talk with local artists and craftspeople; buy fresh from the garden or taste Tasmania’s best sponge cake from a weekend market; try our local brews; learn about North East Tasmania’s tin rush and the resilience of the Chinese miners; walk in dry-stone and timber-flumed water races.
The choice is yours—adventure, food, wine, art, walks, beaches, mountains, waterfalls—sip, savour, explore—come share with us!
