Coles Bay — 2 nights

Overlooking one of Tasmania's most scenic strips of coastline and serving as the gateway to Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay is home to just 500 permanent residents.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Tue): take some stellar pictures from Wineglass Bay Lookout, kick back and relax at Wineglass Bay, and then take a leisurely stroll along Coles Bay Jetty. On the 11th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: kick back and relax at Friendly Beaches, get up close to creatures of the deep with Sea-All Fishing and Marine Tours, and then don't miss a visit to Bicheno Blowhole.

Swansea — 7 nights

On Tasmania's east coast, Swansea was the third municipality to be established in Australia.
You've now added Spiky Beach Conservation Area to your itinerary. Visiting Ratho Golf Course and Tasmanian Bushland Garden will get you outdoors. Let the collections at East Coast Heritage Museum and Bark Mill Museum capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Swansea side-trips: Podium Art (in Oatlands), Tasmanian Wool Centre. (in Ross) and Wild Ocean Tasmania (in Eaglehawk Neck). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Raspins Beach, snap pictures at Spiky Bridge, get great views at Three Thumbs Lookout, and browse the exhibits of Gallery 81.
