All along the coast, bright beaches blaze, and the distinctive blue-green East Coast sea washes the shores, even through the "peak season" you will most likely to be the only person on our world renowned stunning beaches.
The region boasts an array of fine fresh farm & sea produce consistent with the State's claim to fame as a food lover's paradise.
Many of the well known Tasmanian wines are produced here and the winemakers and growers can frequently be met at the vineyards.
The east coast is also home to scallop, abalone, oysters and more, the clear cool waters of the Southern Ocean provide the perfect environment for these delicacies, easily purchased from either directly from the farms of the various food outlets and restaurants.
