East Coast

By Discover Tasmania | Tasmania's East Coast, with its natural beauty, spectacular landscapes and long beautiful beaches, offers a completely different Australian coastal experience.  Here you'll discover the beaches of the beautiful Bay of Fires, one of Lonely Planet's top 10 regions in the world, along with historic townships, fresh seafood and friendly locals.

Making friends with some Great Oyster Bay locals on @eastcoasttasmania with @star_train. Positioned between the Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island to the east, and the Tassie mainland to the west, Great Oyster Bay is a highlight of the @greateasterndrive and the setting for the communities of Swansea, Dolphin Sands and Coles Bay. At the north, the floodplains of the Aspley and Swan rivers have created Moulting Lagoon, an important Ramsar-listed wetland and reserve - home to a vast range of waterbirds and wildlife.

Maria Island quickly became my most favourite location due to an abundance of these photogenic fellas 🐻 #discovertasmania #mariaisland #whyistherenowombatemoji

Enjoying some of the very best scenery in Tasmania.

If someone had told me of these crystal clear waters surrounding the island, I wouldn't have believed. So glad that I got to discover them myself 💫 #discovertasmania #crystalclear #outdoorlife #beachlover #travelfolk #tasmania #tasmagic #traveldeeper

We decided to skip the crowds of Great Ocean Road and do the Great Eastern Drive instead. And oh my, how happy I am that we did ✨ It gave us these pristine beaches, just for ourselves. #ownbeach #tasmania #friendlybeaches #discovertasmania #roadtrip #greateasterndrive #freycinetpeninsula #freycinetnationalpark #tasmagic #livefolk #darlingmoment #outdoorlife #mondolöytö

Wish you were here! Sweeping Autumn afternoon views over the aquamarine bays of Darlington on Maria Island, captured by @stadler.photography.tasmania. This magical little island sits just off of Tassie's East Coast and is home to historic ruins, dramatic cliffs and a wealth of native wildlife. It also offers excellent walking and cycling journeys, where visitors can explore the buildings and ruins – some of which can be seen in this photo - of this historic ghost town with a convict and industrial past.

The colour and clarity of the water just blew me away! #bayoffires #tasmania #discovertasmania #seeaustralia #ig_dronegirls @ig_dronegirls

Good morning and happy Friday from the sunny shores of @EastCoastTasmania's Bay of Fires! A long-time favourite of local and visitors alike, many believe this area’s name comes from the vibrant orange lichen that blankets the beaches' granite boulders. In fact, the stretch of coastline was given its name in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux, an English navigator and captain of the ship "Adventure", when he first saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the area’s beaches during his early explorations of the then Van Diemen’s Land (now Tasmania).

Tonight, it's just you and the entire Universe... @dutchieslife was lucky enough to have this astronomical show all to himself under the twinkling skies of Tasmania's East Coast. When the sun goes down in Tassie, a whole new side of our little island comes alive, with the intriguing nightly drama of nocturnal wildlife, incredible views of our night skies, and for the lucky few, a glimpse of our elusive Southern Lights. As we head in the winter months, the increased hours of darkness make views like these all the more accessible. And when you've finished taking in the star-filled spectacle, there's nothing like a roaring wood fire and a glass (or two) of Tassie red to take the edge off of it.

Picture yourself following in @timjordanphotography's footsteps on one of Tassie's most iconic beaches on @eastcoasttasmania. From the photographer: "It's easy to be content with just the famous view down to Wineglass Bay, but I made the journey down to the beach itself and wow, I was not disappointed. Powder white sand, crystal clear water, easy to see why it's always rated as one the world's best beaches. So worth the hike down and unfortunately back up." We're glad it was worth it, Tim!

Have you ever fallen in love with a place before you even step foot on its beautiful land? Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park in Tasmania was that place for me. As I hiked through the pink granite mountains and came to the summit, I was greeted by a beautiful blue vibrant vista that filled my heart with thanks and my mind with peace. It was then that my soul understood why I was supposed to be here. Tasmania is filled with rugged, natural beauties like this one!
