Getting to know Swansea

Shared by |tags,

If you have ever travelled to Tasmania, you will know that it is the state’s many small towns that make it so unique.

The historic town of Swansea overlooks Great Oyster Bay and the world-famous Freycinet National Park – which means that it may just have some of the most spectacular views in all of Tasmania.

However, it is not just the area’s jaw-dropping good looks that will make you want to take out your camera and start clicking away.

It is also a great tourist destination for people who have a love of the great outdoors and enjoy reconnecting with nature.

Among some of the things that you will be able to do on your next visit to this coastal town are swimming, diving and fishing.

Or for those who prefer to completely unwind while they are on vacation, you will have fun spending hours lying on the white, sandy beaches.

A number of self-guided walks are on offer for those who like to get to know a little about the history of the local area.

You can take a trip through Swansea’s past by visiting the Schouten House, Meredith House and Morris’ General store.

For tips on leather staining and design, you will want to make a beeline for the Swansea Bark Mill Tavern.

While it is hard to go past the quirky profile of Spiky Bridge, you will have plenty of time to get to know the town between early morning swims and late afternoon hikes.

And after spending a day out and about in town, you will probably want to refuel – which is a great excuse to try the regions best seafood.

In fact, the perfect Swansea day is one where you get to enjoy dining on oysters as you sip on local wines and soak in the afternoon sun.
