Exploring East Coast Tasmania

Below are my recommendations of places I loved visiting in the East Coast of Tasmania. If you’re road tripping the east coast, make sure to add these to your next trip!

I've grouped all of the places by location for ease


@floatingsauna_lakederby (Pic 3 & 4) book in and experience this unique sauna situated in the town of Derby, it floats on top of an old flooded tin mine,
now called Briseis Hole. Heat up in the sauna and when it gets too hot, jump in the water. You’ve got to do it!

@pyenganadairy (Pic 5) If you went to the floating sauna and then making your way to the east coast line, you’ll drive through Pyengana and you should stop into @pyenganadairy whilst you’re there for some of the best cheddar in the country. You can taste each of the cheeses, stop in for a bite or pick up some cheese for your onward journey.

📍St Helens
Skippers Fish & Chips (Pic 1)- For fresh local fish if you want to cook up some. Otherwise grab some fish and chips from midday. I got the half pack for $12.

@thelifebuoycafe (Pic 6) for coffee. A cute nautical themed cafe in St Helens with @sco.and.co gift shop attached to it.

@eastcoastprovidorevillage (Pic 7) for the best gourmet groceries. From Cape Grim beef to sauces and preserves, I stocked up here for my dinners back at my accom.

📍Binalong Bay
Explore all the beaches, some of the best you’ll see, Bay of Fires is stunning with white sand, clear blue water and orange lichen cloaked boulders you can climb for a view of the bay. Drive north towards The Gardens to explore quieter beaches.

Lease 65 @aca_aquaculture for fresh oysters by the dozen both shucked or unshucked. Grab some to take home for dinner.

@sabi.stays one of the dreamiest cabins by the beach in the idyllic Binalong Bay. Calm energy, considered interiors, cosy corners and the comfiest bed made this one of my favourite homes I’ve had the pleasure of staying in. Even loved the tiny but mighty kitchen where I cooked most of the meals we had whilst there. I loved it even more than I thought I would.

@theshopinthebush (Pic 8) if you want to peruse some antiques.

@swims_eastcoastcoffee (Pic 8) for coffee if you’re driving through Scamander. A tiny but cute coffee shop in a shipping container.

@lobstershacktasmania (Pic 10) for lunch. Get the lobster roll if it’s warm, the chowder if it’s cold or go all out and order a half lobster.
