If you are looking for scenery, this is your spot. There’s good camping, fishing, swimming, surfing and diving, as well as wonderful views across Great Oyster Bay to Freycinet Peninsula.
Disabled toilets, shady trees, fireplaces, mobile phone coverage are available, and pets are allowed. BYO drinking water, gold coin donation and camera!
Enjoy the absolute beachfront. There’s history, too.
Further north is Spiky Bridge, built in the 1840s by a convict road gang. Local fieldstones were placed vertically, giving a spiky appearance. Perhaps it was to stop cattle falling over the sides?
You can also learn about the convict ruins at nearby Rocky Hills Probation Outstation.
The Mayfield Bay Conservation Area is south of Swansea on Tasmania’s east coast. Travel 16 km south of Swansea or 34 km north of Triabunna to the campsite.
