This charming seaside town is a holiday destination for many Tasmanians. Its great fishing and relaxed coastal lifestyle, combined with dramatic views over Great Oyster Bay to the Hazards mountains and Freycinet Peninsula, are understandable attractions.
However, the biggest pull is its ideal touring location. It is just an hour north to Freycinet National Park, with all its activities, and half an hour south to catch the Maria Island National Park ferry, making Swansea a perfect base to explore the east coast highlights without needing to repack your bags.
