The East Coast of Tasmania is a sparsely populated yet feature-rich coastline containing world-famous beaches, sweeping coastal scenery and quiet towns brimming with charm and history. Due to its rich soil, warm climate and regular rainfall, the East Coast is one of the main wine producing centres of Tasmania. To the north of the coast lies Wineglass bay, the Hazards mountain ranges and Sapphire, a luxurious six-star eco-resort. The largest towns along the East Coast are St. Helens, Coles Bay, Swansea and Orford.
