The hub and heart of Tasmania’s Great Eastern Drive


Swansea is right in the middle of the east coast, the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area.


A day-trip to Coles Bay, Freycinet Peninsula and Wineglass Bay, another day-trip to the many vineyards around Swansea (north and south), take a cruise around the peninsula, a flight to see it all from the air, ride a bike on Maria Island, throw a line in off the jetty or swing a golf club with majestic views to take you far away from city life, and many more relaxing or exciting adventures to be had – in and around Swansea.
