Without question, the East Coast of Tasmania is the most popular place to camp and none more so during the warmer summer months over the Christmas New Year, school holidays, Australia Day long weekend, and Easter holiday periods. There are many icons to visit including the very popular Wineglass Bay in the Freycinet National Park. There are also numerous wineries, eateries, and other attractions to visit in this part of Tasmania. Please note we don’t recommend you follow the following itinerary over Christmas, as you are most likely going to be very disappointed – campsites on the East Coast of Tasmania fill up very early and for a long period over the Summer holidays. Please note this itinerary will have you on the move – it’s only recommended if you have minimal time and want to see a lot of Tassie!

Mt William National Park: This spectacular National Park in Tasmania is located on Tassie’s far north-east corner with the park being significant for the conservation of Tasmania’s coastal heathlands and dry sclerophyll plants. The foliage in this park is stunning in spring and summer when the park’s open grasslands are alive with wildflowers in full bloom. The Xanthorrhoea plant, with its grass-like skirt and tall flower spike, is common throughout the park and highly distinctive.
