    5 Thursday, January 6, 2022 Coles Bay, Australia

    Coles Bay, the hub of tourism on Tasmania's east coast, is the main access point to Freycinet National Park. Whalers, farmers, tin and coal miners, were some of the many people who originally settled here, but today the population of around five hundred is outnumbered by the numerous tourists. The town is on the northern end of Great Oyster Bay with stunning views of the red and pink granite peaks known as The Hazards, on the Freycinet Peninsula. Each Easter the town is one of the three locations for the Australian Three Peaks Race, a continuous sailing and running event starting at Beauty Point just north of Launceston and ending at Hobart, with runners scaling three mountains including Mount Freycinet.

    View of Wineglass Bay, Australia

    Set on Tasmania's eastern coast, deep amongst the stunning beauty of Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay enjoys some of the world's best climate conditions, with over 300 days of sunshine a year. The bay with its 1.8km white sand beach is one of three bays defining the narrow Freycinet Peninsula. In the 1820s whalers came to Wineglass Bay and set up shore bases. Whenever the whalers went about their grisly business, the bay was dyed red with blood - like rich red wine in a glass - hence its name. Read more about Wineglass Bay, Australia

    View of Flinders Island, Australia

    Flinders Island was named in 1799, after Bass and Flinders circumnavigated Tasmania. The strait separating Tasmania from the mainland was named Bass Strait, while the major island in the Furneaux Group of 52 islands was named after Flinders. The history of these islands is closely tied to the tragic story of the Tasmanian Aboriginals, and the original settlement scheme that drew settlers from Tasmania and central NSW to the island's eastern shore.
