Coles Bay Hotel & Accommodation

Situated on the east coast of Tasmania, just under 3 hours from Hobart and Launceston, Coles Bay is an attractive locality which sits at the foot of the towering Hazards and on the edge of the Freycinet National Park and stunning Wineglass Bay.

From premium luxury hotels to waterfront resorts accommodation, Coles Bay accommodation is usually quite exclusive and upmarket, however there are plenty of affordable hotel options in the east coast town too.

With a permanent population of less than 200, Coles Bay is incredibly secluded and uncrowded, renowned for being one of the most quiet and idyllic spots in Australia. The area experiences an extremely mild climate, experiencing around 300 days of sunshine per year, beating out Queensland's Gold Coast!

One of the first townships in the world to ban the use of plastic bags, Coles Bay is a spot of environmental international acclaim, fostering an incredibly safe environment for wildlife and marine life in the bay and surrounding national park.

The rugged and beautiful Freycinet Peninsula sticks out into the sea on Tasmania's east coast, consisting of soaring granite mountains, azure bays and beaches with miles of white sand. Whether you're enjoying the dramatic peaks of the park from your hotel window or taking a nature hike through the stunning gorges of the peninsula, Freycinet National Park's beauty is the centrepiece of Coles Bay.

Although it's renowned for its stunning bay, the Coles Bay region boasts many stunning beaches perfect for nature hikes or relaxing on golden sands. The uncrowded waters are perfect for water sports and fishing, with swimming, diving, waterskiing, sailing and kayaking also popular all year round.

When it comes to food and wine, Coles Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula boast a fantastic and eclectic range of eateries. Local restaurants serve pristine produce from the unspoilt farmland of the region, and fresh seafood from the cool southern ocean waters.

Locally operated Wineglass Bay cruises also operate in the region, taking visitors around the stunning peninsula and giving a greater insight into the region's unique geography, history and many colourful forms of marine and birdlife.
