Coles Bay lies on a beautiful, unspoilt bay on the Feycinet Peninsula. The town lies at the most popular entrance to Freycinet National Park and it is a convenient place to stay for those intending to visit the park.
Freycinet National Park has a well-deserved reputation for the most picturesque coastal scenery in Tasmania. Dominated by the granite peaks known as The Hazards, the park has numerous bays, steep cliffs, bushwalks and viewpoints. It is also home to rare east coast orchids and many other wildflowers.
Birdwatchers will be interested in Moulting Lagoon Game Reserve, an internationally important wetland area. Freycinet National Park also has an abundance of birdlife.
