Freycinet on the Bay is in the heart of Coles Bay with easy access to the Freycinet National Park, beaches and dining.

The Freycinet Peninsular on Tasmanian East Coast is renowned for its long white beaches, rugged scenic coastline, brilliant blue seas and mild climate.

Coles Bay is a favourite holiday destination for thousands of Tasmanians, holiday makers from Mainland Australia and overseas visitors. Coles Bay faces into Great Oyster Bay amid some of the most dramatic scenery to be seen anywhere.  Coles Bay has become the accommodation base for visitors to the Freycinet National Park.

Freycinet Peninsular

Freycinet National Park runs from Bicheno in the north to Schouten Island in the south and boasts spectacular red granite mountains, islands, cliffs, lagoons and wetlands.  Its sheltered coves and dazzling white sandy beaches are many and varied. Wildlife abounds including the very friendly Bennett’s Wallaby which is often seen on the beach at the water’s edge. On the ocean side of the peninsular lies Wineglass Bay with its pristine white sands and aqua blue waters, considered to be one of the top ten beaches in the world.

Coles Bay is only 2.5 hours from the historic capital city Hobart (and MONA) in the south and 2 hours from the beautiful city of Launceston in the north the journey to the Peninsular from either direction takes in spectacular scenery from unspoilt beaches to rugged mountains and historic villages and towns.  A journey not to be missed.
