If you’re planning to visit to Tassie and have your list of nature attractions complete, then it might be time to add some quaint towns in Tasmania to your list, too.

It’s a unique part of Australia with stunning scenery, unmatched history, and a food and wine scene that will make your taste buds EXPLODE.

The Best Towns in Tasmania To Visit

So plan on a good old fashioned Tasmanian road trip, and here are my favourite towns I suggest you highlight on your map to plot your journey.


We enjoyed half a day exploring the historic sites and taking a stroll along the river before grabbing a bite to eat at the Richmond Hotel followed by coffee and cake at the popular bakery.

Coles Bay

It’s a small town with a few shops and cafes – don’t miss Tombolo Restaurant and coffee bar for great coffee + wood fired pizzas with stunning views. Another place you must visit is Freycinet Marine Farm, where you can find some of the freshest oysters in Tasmania.


It’s a small port town and from where we did our cruise down the famous World Heritage Gordon River, one of the highlights of our month in Tassie.


Situated on the shores of Bass Strait, Penguin is the best town to base yourself to explore the north west region of Tasmania.


Corinna is remote, quiet, small, and a true wilderness experience. It’s a former mining town on the banks of the Pieman river and at the end of the Tarkine (the largest temperate rainforest in Australia) and the northern most point where the famous Huon pine grows.
