Whilst the East Coast offers a coastline of turquoise waters and white beaches,
spectacular wildflowers and unique wildlife, Tasmania's north east region is the
place to be, currently seeming to attract less people, but still having some of
the best that Tasmania has to offer.
Famed for being a great place to fish,
with St Helens considered to be the Game Fishing Capital of Tasmania, the north
east region is more than just sand and sea, as just inland from the coastline
are hills and valleys of not only prime agricultural pasture, but rainforest and
waterfalls, historic villages, scenic drives and walks, and a thriving cottage
The scenic region of Tasmania's north east region overlays the local government
area of the Dorset Council that encompass the towns and villages of Branxholm,
Bridport, Derby, Gladstone, Herrick, Legerwood, Musselroe Bay, Nabowla, Pioneer,
Ringarooma, Tomahawk and Winnaleah, whilst
Scottsdale is the main service centre
for the region. The largest islands off the coast include
Flinders Island and
Cape Barren Island.
Also within the region is the Break ODay Municipality
that includes a number of popular coastal destinations including Ansons Bay, The Gardens,
Binalong Bay, St Helens, Stieglitz, Beaumaris, Scamander, Falmouth, Four Mile
Creek, Chain of Lagoons, and Seymour. The coastal region also encompasses Mount
William National Park and the stunning Bay of Fires region.
