The Local Area

Swansea is located at the half way point from Hobart to Launceston when traveling the East Coast of Tasmania approximately 90 minutes from either city. 50 minutes to Freycinet National Park.


Located a short stroll down the road is the beach. If you're a morning person it's a magic view watching the sun rise over the Hazards at Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay. Then later in the day grab a beach chair, bucket and spade with and head back to the beach for some swimming, sand castle building, or surf fishing bait is available at the local supermarket. Adjacent to the beach is Duck Park so if heading down to the beach take a slice of bread or 2 and feed the ducks. There is large play area for children of all ages, and even outdoor exercise equipment if you're energetic. Another park with play equipment and BBQ facilities is located at the other end of Swansea.


Swansea has 2 boat ramps, the closest being just around the corner, and the newer one located a few minutes drive away. There are many other local points to launch your boat, of which we are happy to provide you further details on upon request.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great property in quiet area! This is a great property for a family looking for a relaxing getaway. The house can easily fit two families as there are two rooms for adults, one of which has an ensuite and then one bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. The other highlight is great outdoor spaces. There are two upstairs decks and great downstairs outdoor space within the fenced in yard. All in all, the house is great. The only issue we had with the place were that there were no garbage bags, paper towels, and laundry detergent in the house. These are not show stoppers, but when you come into a very small town late at night around the Christmas holidays these are essentials. Fortunately we could make multiple trips to the local IGA to rectify, which was inconvenient but not too big of an issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great location 4 mature couples booked this house for 2 nights. We were surprised to find one room had bunks so one couple drew the short straw. It was a cold week-end and we had not been advised to bring blankets, with no top sheets on any of the beds and only very light doonas, we had to rug up when we went to bed. We found the bbq unusable due to not being cleaned. On the upside, the owners were very receptive to our feedback and allowed us a late checkout of 12 noon, which made our Sunday morning departure easier. May we suggest some additional advice for guests regarding bedding configuration and blankets. Also a later than 10am checkout in winter would be an attraction. The house was very well equipped in every other area, highly recommended for that reason, only a 1 minute walk to the beach and beautiful walk along the beachside track into Swansea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suitable for families with children The property is comfortable, modern and most of all suitable for children! The property does have stairs, however a baby gate is supplied for piece of mind. Toys, dvd's and an outdoor play center is included in the fully fenced yard. The beds are very comfortable also which is a must for long days travelling. Put this on your list as a must!
