The mild climate and pristine secluded beaches means the coastline is perfect for adventure activities including kayaking, diving, abseiling and deep sea fishing, as well as more relaxing activities including walking, wildlife spotting, penguin parades and sea cruises.

A number of cellar doors and vineyards are conveniently located along Tasmania's East Coast, stretching from Orford to Bicheno. Call in and taste the full range of crisp, elegant cool climate wines on offer.

Then, at the end of each day, relax and indulge in the freshest seafood, olives, walnuts and berries sourced from the region, washed down, once again with a glass of local award-winning wine. A visit to Tasmania's East Coast is a "must do" addition to your holiday itinerary.
