If your idea of the ultimate weekend away involves walking along sandy white beaches that are free from crowds, you might want to consider visiting Tasmania’s east coast.
With its intense aqua water, diverse marine life and laidback lifestyle, it is hard to go past this part of the island state for a relaxing holiday.
And while you may not feel like dipping your toes in the water during winter, you can still find plenty of things to do.
Among the top winter activities are kayaking in Wine Glass Bay, sea cruises to Maria Island and numerous coastal walks – the latter proving popular with people of all ages.
When it comes to accommodation, you will want to stay in one of the many eco-lodges that dot the horizon and get to know other travellers who are also in the region.
Another hot tip is to indulge in the region’s delicious seafood – which is all harvested freshly and sure to make your mouth come alive with flavour.
For more information about travelling through the east coast, you will want to drop into the local Visitor Information Centre or visit the Tourism Tasmania website for the latest itineraries.
