Coles Bay, Freycinet

(3.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Coles Bay, with a permanent population of only 470 people, is the main entrance point for tourists visiting the Freycinet National Park. Choose from a variety of activities available here, such as hiking, biking, fishing, boating, and sea kayaking. This area, which had long been mined for tin and coal, became Tasmania’s first national park in 1916. Today, you can visit several old mine shafts and farmers’ huts for an important lesson about Tasmania’s early European settlements. Another option is a short hike to the Great Oyster Bay, offering panoramic views of the red and pink granite peaks known as the Hazards. Remember that there are few stores here, so be sure to bring plenty of your own food and water supplies when you visit.
