The Freycinet Coast region offers so much to see and do. View the fairy penguins on Bicheno's evening penguin tours, or at low tide you can stroll out to Diamond Island and explore the coast. Go diving with one of the various charter groups, or you can even 'do-it-yourself' and hire your own snorkel or mask for the day. And if you want to experience the marine beauty without getting wet then take a glass-bottomed boat in the Gulch's sheltered waters.

A few of the many highlights include:

- Spectacular walks along trails, forest tracks, beaches and historical features

- Fishing, boating or relaxing on glorious beaches

- Enjoy four wheel motorbiking, or even a Tasmanian Devil experience with All4 Adventures

- Pleasant walking tours and hiking throughout the east coast forsets and national parks

- Swim, walk or picnic on the unspoilt beaches fringing the bay

- Take a scenic airflight over the area from the Friendly Beaches airstrip

View the magnificent St John the Baptist Church in Buckland. Built in 1846 from local sandstone, it features stained glass window dating back to the 14th centrury.

Spot one of the magnificent Humpback or Southern Right whales at Freycinet National Park, that frequent the Bay from May through to late September.

At Maria Island walk to the spectacular Fossil Cliffs (11/2 - 2 hours return) or Painted Cliffs (2 - 21/2 hours return) along well-established walking tracks.

The Freycinet Coast boasts an array of fine fresh farm & sea produce consistent with the State's claim to fame as a food lover's paradise. Many of the well known Tasmanian wines are produced here and the winemakers and growers can frequently be met at the vineyards.

The Freycinet Coast is also home to scallop, abalone, oyster and wakame (seaweed) farms. The clear cool waters of the Southern Ocean provide the perfect environment for these delicacies to be grown for Tasmanian, Interstate and International markets.
