The small town of Coles Bay is located on the sheltered western coast of the Freycinet Peninsula, on the east coast of Tasmania, 70 miles (115km) northeast of Hobart. It is dominated by the spectacular pink granite outcrops called the Hazards. Coles Bay gives access to sandy beaches, secluded coves, rocky cliffs and the excellent Freycinet National Park. The Park is noted for its coastal heaths, orchids, and other wildflowers and for its wildlife including black cockatoos, yellow wattlebirds, honey eaters and Bennetts wallabies. Wineglass Bay is one of the beautiful bays found in the Park. Also, visit the Moulting Lagoon Game Reserve which is a breeding ground for black swans and wild ducks.
Bushwalking, Fishing, Nature and Wildlife Viewing (including Tasmanian Devils), Sea Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Windsurfing, Abseiling/Rappeling, Beach Camping, Sailing, Cruising, Snorkelling/Scuba Diving, and Surfing are just a few things you can do in Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park.
