The East Coast offers by white beaches, secluded, sheltered bays and spectacular headlands. It is Tasmanias sun coast, edged by crystal blue waters and clusters of holiday homes that have tied generations of families to annual bouts of rest and recreation. And the East Coast beckons you to explore beyond the shore and beneath the sea to giant kelp forests and caves, or even further to the continental shelf, where the big game fish run.
All along the coast, bright beaches blaze, and the distinctive blue-green East Coast sea washes the shores. Grey-green sheoak trees dapple the ground with cool shade. In the ocean beyond, whales follow ancestral migration routes, dolphins frolic and sea birds wheel on the wind. Inland, rainforest clings to steep mountain passes, and the steep rock buttresses of Ben Lomond frown over the rich farmlands of the Fingal Valley.
Each place has its own surprises - sapphires panned from old mines near Branxholm and Derby; farm cheese at Pyengana; skiing and walks on Ben Lomond’s craggy heights; echoes of a mining heritage at Derby and the Blue Tier; a desert of golden sand dunes at St Helens; rough-cut local granite in the towering Eddystone Point lighthouse; sweeping views of forests and farmlands as the Mathinna road descends to Fingal Valley.
Noted surveyor, John Helder Wedge, first explored the area including Scamander in 1825. The present township is at the outlet of a large river, which proved a real barrier to early travellers, especially Wedge. Originally it was named Borthwick; then Hansons Creek; and finally the Scamander River, its official name today.
