Tasmania - The East Coast (PDF Chapter)
This is the East Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Tasmania guidebook.
Tasmania’s east coast is sea-salted and rejuvenating - quiet bays punctuated by granite headlands splashed with flaming orange lichen. This is prime holiday terrain, with plenty of opportunities to hike, bike, kayak, surf, dive and fish - set up your beachside camp and get into it.
- sweat it out on the track to Wineglass Bay…then cool off in the sea once you get there
- bump into wombats and wallabies at Maria Island National Park
- reel in a deep-sea monster - or at least catch your dinner - at St Helens
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Orford, Triabunna, Maria Island National Park, Swansea, Coles Bay & Freycinet National Park, Bicheno, Douglas-Apsley National Park, St Marys, Scamander & Beaumaris, St Helens, Bay of Fires, Mt William National Park, Weldborough & the Blue Tier, Derby & around, Scottsdale & around, Bridport and Flinders Island.
