Just over an hour's drive north-east of Hobart, the scenic port town of Triabunna nestles among undulating hills and inviting beaches.

There are few more picturesque locations in the island state, with Eucalypt forest perched alongside a spectacular coastline.

You can visit the sheltered waters of Prosser Bay for a wonderful day of fishing or sailing.

The majestic kelp forests and coral reefs of nearby Maria Island are ideal for a scuba diving trip, while the island itself is also a haven for cycling, bushwalking and wildlife spotting.

Triabunna town is a great destination for the relaxed holidaymaker. With a range of excellent accommodation, shops, galleries and tearooms lining the quaint streets you can idle away the day in total relaxation and feel a million miles from home.

In the region's coastal reserves there are picturesque walks such as the Pelican Walk which begins by the marina and the Wielangta Forest and Old Convict Road walks in Orford.

With a population of just over 700 people, Triabunna offers friendly hospitality along with exquisite local cuisine including succulent scallops, mussels and fresh abalone.

Tasmania's east coast is renowned for its settled weather conditions year-round and the average maximum summer temperature in Triabunna is a mild 22.5 degrees Celsius – perfect for a comfortable journey.
