Within a 90 min drive from Tin Dragon Cottages you are off the beaten track where you can explore deserted white beaches, rain-forested mountains and stunning waterfalls in North East Tasmania.
Although unsealed roads take you to best of the Mountains, waterfalls and beaches, a four-wheel drive vehicle is rarely needed to explore North East Tasmania.
White-sand Beaches of North East Tasmania
Our favourite beaches to explore in North East Tasmania include: Waterhouse Conservation Area, Mount William National Park, Musselroe Bay and Cape Portland. These deserted white-sand beaches are punctuated by windswept headlands, sheltered lagoons and estuaries. Wildlife including wallabies, Forester Kangaroos, wombats and bird life abounds.
However for a more “civilised” beach excursion you may prefer a drive on a sealed road to Bridport. Because, at this seaside village, you can enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants or hotels! So ask us about all the beach possibilities when you visit. You can read more by searching our blog posts: Beaches of North East Tasmania.
