THE EAST COAST SOUTH
SORELL TO BICHENO
We have split the east coast tour into two sections to cover each in better detail. This
map covers the highway from Sorell in the south to Bicheno and includes Triabunna, Orford, Maria Island,
Swansea and the Freycinet Peninsula. The northern section is from Bicheno to St Helens
and includes Fingal, Avoca and St Marys along the Esk Main Road.
The East Coast of Tasmania is its holiday playground. Golden beaches, national parks, quaint fishing villages,
coastal scenery, convict history and a wide variety of accommodation and attractions make it a popular
destination all year round.
The road which passes through this area follows the coast most of the way from Sorell to St Helens with a
minor detour to explore the wonderful Freycinet Peninsula and the pretty town of St Marys in the north.
There are several roadside wineries along the way and plenty of places to stop for a swim or a picnic. You will
find most of what you want in the listings of individual towns below. You should set aside a couple of days for
the trip from Hobart to Launceston via the coast. There is plenty to see and do.
