Highlights of the East Coast are its national parks - Freycinet with the stunning Hazards mountain range is a bushwalkers and sea kayakers paradise. Douglas-Apsley with its quietly flowing rivers, eucaplypts and Oyster Bay pines; and maria Island rich in history, with beaches, cliffs and mountains to explore.
All along the coast the distinctive blue-green east coast sea washes the rocky shores and pristine beaches. Grey-green she-oaks trees dapple the ground with cool shade. In ocean beyond, whales follow ancestral migration routes, dolphin frolic and sea birds wheel on the wind. Inland, rainforest clings to steep mountain passes.
