Mayfield Bay Coastal Reserve free camping Swansea is a great spot to break your journey along the east coast when driving north to St. Helens, Scamander and Bicheno or south to Triabunna, Little Swanport, Orford, Sorell and South East Tasmania or Hobart. A little further north from the Mayfield Bay free camping area Swansea you will find the convict built Spiky Bridge. This unusual looking bridge was built in the 1840s by a convict road gang. The bridge was built from local fieldstone with them placed vertically along the parapet, giving the bridge a spiky appearance. It has been claimed that the spikes were designed to prevent cattle falling over the sides; interpretation signs will give you some good information about the nearby Rocky Hills Probation Outstation convict ruins. There is plenty of room for large campervans, motorhomes or other big rigs and there is also a boat ramp if you are into fishing. If not, there is an excellent beach with good snorkelling and diving opportunities. Dogs OK, but must be on a lead at all times.
