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.

To find reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Coles Bay trip builder tool.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Coles Bay. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Thu) so you can go by car to Swansea.

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 Raspins Beach will get you outdoors. Let the collections at East Coast Heritage Museum and Gallery 81 capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Swansea side-trips: Podium Art (in Oatlands), Tasmanian Bushland Garden (in Buckland) and Wild Ocean Tasmania (in Eaglehawk Neck). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Bark Mill Museum, relax in the rural setting at Kate's Berry Farm, examine the collection at Tasmanian Wool Centre., and head off the coast to Maria Island National Park.
