Elope on Tasmania’s Wild East Coast

June 8, 2021


Tasmania’s east coast, with its natural beauty, spectacular landscapes and long beautiful beaches, offers a magnificent backdrop for an elopement. Surrounded by beaches of the beautiful Bay of Fires, along with historic townships and fresh seafood.

Five national parks spread along the coast including the stunning Freycinet National Park with its pink granite mountains, white beaches and crystal clear sea.

We recommend flying into Hobart, hiring a car and driving an hour and 40 minutes to experience Tasmania’s wild East Coast – one of the best scenic coastal drives in the Australia.

Thalia Haven

Thalia Haven is set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the crystal blue waters of Great Oyster Bay on Tasmania’s East Coast. Thalia Haven is the perfect location for an intimate elopement or a small celebration of up to 8 guests.

Organise a private chef to create an intimate dinner at Thalia Haven or enjoy a special dining experience at one of the local restaurants.


Homestead Restaurant at Piermont

Treat yourself to a degustation or a la carte dinner at Homestead Restaurant at Piermont, located 3km south of Swansea on the edge of Great Oyster Bay. The Homestead Restaurant crafts authentic dishes with the freshest local produce in a casually elegant setting. The restaurant’s menu is seasonally inspired, celebrating the region’s diverse flavours.



Nestled in an unspoilt bay in the remote East Coast Tasmania, Piermont is a offers boutique luxury accommodation in Swansea overlooking the beautiful Freycinet Peninsula.  Framed by wild forest and cradled by the crystal blue bay. Piermont is a sanctuary of understated luxury, the perfect place for an extended stay after your elopement. Piermont cottages are elegantly appointed with log fires, spa baths and beachfront decks. Built sustainably with natural materials.

Discover the East Coast wine trail

Dotted along the coastline are some of Tasmania’s most celebrated wineries and providore. The two-hour trip promises exquisite cool-climate Pinot Noirs, Rieslings, Pinot Gris and Rosés—available to sample at the historic cellar doors of Spring Vale, Milton, Gala Estate, Freycinet and Piermont’s Homestead Restaurant. Linger amongst the grapevines and meet the families who’ve crafted these fine vintages here for generations.

Eat fresh oysters at Freycinet Marine Farm

Just outside Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula, Freycinet Marine Farm is a working oyster farm that also offers a dine-in option on their deck (or takeaway if you’d prefer). Their oysters are fattened in Great Oyster Bay and they also serve locally-caught salmon, crayfish and abalone. Farm tours and tastings are available with Oyster Bay Tours.
