Tasmania’s East Coast is one of the most spectacular destinations in Australia to discover by bike. From the sweeping coastal perfection of the Freycinet Peninsula to the wildlife rich and car-free wilderness of Maria Island, the coastline is studded with an amazing array of natural wonders to keep riders inspired to return again and again.

Experience the remarkable beauty of the Freycinet Peninsula, watch the sunrise over the Tasman and enjoying dramatic views of pink granite cliffs, coastal heathlands and the iconic beaches of Coles Bay, Wineglass Bay and more.

For self guided cyclists there are numerous attractions and side-trips to include on your cycling trip in Tasmania. Delve into the local history at Port Arthur, kayak in Coles Bay, sample an ale at a local brewery or catch the ferry to Maria Island to explore the rugged scenery, abundant wildlife and rich history of this former penal colony.
