Must do TASSIE Roadtrip: North east coast from Burnie to Stanley

Tasmania? I think we’ll move here! Had a swim in the Bass Strait on this trip, a wee in a bank vault (truly), saw falls, aqua beaches, historic lighthouse and met travelling nurses on a hike, cottages and we slept under a nut! Beauty on every turn. If you are travelling from the beautiful Central Coast of Tasmania to Stanley, here are some vital tips from our team member Leisa, who lived in Stanley for two years. Above is the awesome view we had of this spectacular coast, and a great place to start – at Round Mountain Lookout, Burnie.

Local tips to camp and explore Tasmania’s Central Coast

If you are driving between Devonport and Burnie on Tasmania’s east coast, make sure you take the time to enjoy the region. Although we only spent a few nights, we benefited from our friend’s local knowledge and we covered a lot of country.  The Central Coast of Tasmania has two main towns – Ulverstone and Penguin. Here’s some of our highlights: Ulverstone Our first night in Tassie was not a disappointment! Our mates had talked up the quality of local produce and cellar door since they left Rainbow Beach to farm life on the Apple Isle. They took us to

Tips on Touring Tasmania

Ezra from the UK, is hiring a motorhome, and organising a week’s camping in Tasmania. He said places are booking out already, and was hoping for some advice…  Now, we’re just back from Tasmania and it is no surprise bookings are busy. Especially around that time. We had trouble, too – but there was still room in free camps. Firstly – here is our latest article that is perfect for you. I would recommend choosing one corner of Tasmania (depending on where you fly into Tasmania), otherwise in a week you’ll spend a lot of time driving. Many free camps

Leven Canyon Reserve Tasmania
Camping

Free camp beside a Tassie canyon at Leven Canyon Reserve

What a site! Just a short walk from this free, pet-friendly campground at Leven Canyon Reserve is a lookout 275m above the river!  On arrival, we saw the day use area below the carpark – the elevated campground is quite sloped, but there were still flat locations to set up camp. I loved this camp spot with the silver wattle, looking over the valley of blue gum – this is the photo chosen for our brand new CAMPS 12 now available on pre-order… There were a couple of RVs set up at the top of the hill. Below that was a

Riverside camping and devils at Wings Wildlife Park in Tasmania

When you drive to Wings Wildlife Park in Tasmania’s beautiful Gunns Plains make sure you stop at George Woodhouse lookout to soak up that gorgeous valley. It was near here we found an echidna beside the road – a live one, thankfully!  So very cute, they stood very still and just peered at me.   If you are an animal lover, or have some in your family – they will be in their element. The wildlife park  has animal encounters galore – and personally guided tours. So touch an Aussie sugar glider, snake, or exotic meerkats or marmosets… Me? I’d

“Unbeatable” beachfront camping at Richardsons Beach, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania

Wow, what an amazing spot in Coles Bay, Freycinet National Park! Bec from Look The World In The Eye has been travelling Australia for six months when they came across this beauty in Tasmania. They said, “Unbeatable position! This is one of the nicest spots we’ve camped!” “$13 for unpowered ‘tent’ sites (not all suitable to sleep in a car as some car parks sloped – we were in site #30 which was great for our van) or $16 for power and water (all powered sites suitable for caravans).” This site is Richardsons Beach, just outside Coles Bay – beside Ranger

Lilydale Falls Reserve – North East Tasmania

Travel_and_tassie via Instagram While heading off on an early morning trip towards the Meander Valley, it was an opportunity to stop at the Lilydale Falls Reserve about 25 km east of Launceston, just on the outskirts of the village of Lilydale.  The spot is popular for a picnic, to camp or for bushwalking.  (Above image @Travel_and_tassie via Instagram ) The reserve is a leafy, shaded haven, with lots of birdlife and plenty of room for vehicles,  caravans, motorhomes or to camp up for one night. There is an undercover area with bbq, a playground for the kids, picnic tables, toilets, bins

What to see and do at Arthur River in Tasmania’s North West

Boasting three budget campgrounds and a caravan park, Arthur River is a must do! This tiny village has a population of about 25. Surrounded by the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area and located on the Tarkine Drive this is a pristine area of Tasmania.  As for wildlife, there are  Bennett’s wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. Tasmanian devils, brushtail possums and spotted-tailed quolls! Unfortunately, we only spotted the Tassie Devil signs. Birdwatchers have plenty of species to spot as well. On top of fishing, surfing, horse riding and camping, it is surprising how much there is to do and see… The Edge of the World A must! Take the short drive and take the boardwalk to
