For a small state Tasmania has a lot going for it, and you should definitely give the “Apple Isle” more than a few days.

Tassie has some of Australia’s most important historical sites like World Heritage Port Arthur, delicious local produce that you must get a taste of, unspoilt wilderness in places like the Gordon River and Bruny Island, and charming walkable cities filled with sandstone buildings like Hobart.

And then there are the beaches in Tasmania! Some of the most scenic and uncrowded beaches you will find anywhere in Australia are in Tasmania. Tasmanian beaches are not famous for surfing or warm temperatures for swimming, but if you want some serious eye candy and a beautiful beach to stroll along, Tasmania has them.

Below are photos of my 6 favourite beaches in Tasmania from our month long road trip that you must set foot on:

1. Hazards Beach

Located in Freycinet National Park (our favourite place in Tassie), we fell in love with Hazards Beach. Base yourself in Coles Bay and combine it with the walk to Wine Glass Bay. Or, do it in style and take a sea plane from Hobart.Hazards Beach, Tasmania, Australia

2. Bay of Fires

The Bay of Fires is situated on the north-east coast of Tasmania and is a region of white beaches, blue water and these incredible rock formations (orange-hued granite).ay of Fires, Tasmania, AustraliaBay of Fires, Tasmania, Australia

3. Wineglass Bay

Imagine being all alone on world famous Wine Glass Bay. That’s what happened to us. When you visit Freycinet National Park, get up early to do the walk to Wineglass Bay. You may just have the place all to yourself like us.

4. Bicheno Beach

I wish we spent more time in Bicheno instead of just a lunch break on one of our driving days. Located on the east coast of Tasmania (north-east of Hobart), this beach and small town was very inviting and hard to leave.

5. Binalong Bay

This beach is actually situated at the southern end of the Bay of Fires (can that place get any better?). Take a walk here then finish off with a great coffee and view from the Binalong Bay Cafe.

One more beach from Freycinet National Park. You can now see why Freycinet is our favourite place in Tasmania. Want incredible beaches, this National Park has them!
