Swansea, Tasmania, Australia is a town in the heart of Tasmania's east coast, on the north-west shore of Great Oyster Bay and overlooking Freycinet National Park.
Swansea makes a great base for touring Tasmania’s east coast and its hinterlands, being less than two hours’ drive from Hobart or Launceston.
Swansea is a small town. But it is a nice place as a stop when you travel from Hobart as it is accessible to Coles Bay, Ross, etc.
Stop by the General Store building. It has a little room that is decorated like a mini-museum with old stuff in there.
Swansea Tas is the oldest seaside town on Tasmania’s East Coast. Swansea was first explored in 1798 and later settled in 1827.
Today, Swansea is a major stop for any Tasmania Holiday. Our position on the Great Oyster Bay and proximity to World Heritage listed natural attractions will provide guests with lots to see and do.
The town of Swansea is not really worth talking about as there's very limited tourist attractions (including F&B options).
However, it is close to other activities such as Freycinet National Park & Bicheno, which makes Swansea a good "base camp".
This place really has nothing much, so a stopover for your long journey is fine but not for other reasons.
