About East Coast TasmaniaTasmania’s East Coast is a region of contrast - sunshine and sea life, wine and wildlife, crags and beaches, history and adventure. In the north from the Chain of Lagoons to the Bay of Fires and beyond to Mt William National Park, explore the white gold sandy beaches, the bright orange of lichen-splashed granite and the clear turquoise sea. Safe inside Georges Bay at St Helens, the fishing fleet sits snugly against the pier. Beyond the sand bar, the ocean teems with game fish. St Helens is the largest town in the region and is well known for wonderful beaches, huge sand dunes, good fishing and lovely scenery. To the south, past Bicheno, sits Coles Bay beneath pink granite mountains at the entrance to Freycinet National Park. The Coles Bay area is one of Tasmania’s most popular holiday spots for visitors and locals. It overlooks crystal clear Oyster Bay – ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, boating and fishing.
