East Coast

Freycinet National Park

Watch this one people, this is one of the most beautiful areas of Tasmania but hides one of the most crappy accommodation deals.

Don’t stay at Freycinet Lodge.

You can camp in the national park, or try Coles Bay if you plan to do some big walks, otherwise stay in the sea side town of Swansea as alternative accommodation options

We love the Wineglass Bay walk, take a picnic. You can buy oysters on you way in to Freycinet and pick up supplies in Swansea or Coles Bay

Other Tips, If your heading from Hobart

Stop at Kabuki by the Sea for morning tea or lunch, also they have excellent accommodation

Stop at Craig Knowe Vinyard at Cranbrook

Stop at Kates Berry farm for the view and ice-creme just before Swansea

Stop at Freycinet Vinyard

The only thing worth doing at Freycinet Lodge is grabbing a beer and watching the sun set to recover from a long walk - stay somewhere else

We Love Apsley Gorge Pinot, this is made to be eaten with east coast crayfish ( available at the Butcher)

Apsley Gorge Vineyard is near Bicheno, on the east coast, at the entrance to Apsley Gorge. The vineyard has one of the most stunning locations overlooking The Gulch in Bicheno, where the ocean swirls and crashes onto the rocks.

The unique micro climate of this north east facing valley produces distinctive cool climate wines, medal winning chardonnay and pinot. These wines are aged in French oak.
