The Hazards Vineyard provides a tasting experience while overlooking the famous 'Hazards’ of the Freycinet Peninsular. It is the new home for the Devil’s Corner range. The opening of the vineyard coincides with the release of a new look for the Devil’s Corner wines. These premium Tasmanian wines, first developed in 1999, have taken on the breathtaking artwork by local Tasmanian artist Rebecca Birrell, exclusively commissioned for this wine. Her artwork is currently on show at The Hazards Vineyard. The Hazards Vineyard overlooks Moulting Lagoon, a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance. The Ramsar Convention, to which Australia is a signatory, is a global intergovernmental treaty for the conservation of wetlands and their resources. The Moulting Lagoon Nature Reserve supports a large number of waterbirds, particularly black swans and Australian shelducks at key stages of their lifecycles and is a critical late-summer staging area for migratory waterbirds and shorebird species. The largest Tasmanian flock of greenshanks also occurs at the lagoon. Guests can picnic overlooking the vineyard and there are toilets on site.

Apsley Gorge Vineyard is near Bicheno, on the east coast, at the entrance to Apsley Gorge. The vineyard has one of the most stunning locations overlooking The Gulch in Bicheno, where the ocean swirls and crashes onto the rocks. The unique micro climate of this north-east facing valley produces distinctive cool climate wines, medal winning chardonnay and pinot. These wines are aged in French oak. Apsley Gorge Vineyard's first vintage was produced in 1993, the winemaker was Andrew Hood who continued to make the wines until 1998. The owner Brian Franklin took over the wine making in 1999. Apsley Gorge Vineyard itself is not open to the public, however wine tastings and sales are available from November until the new vintage starts, which is usually after the Easter holiday break. Here you can indulge in more than wine tasting: we have freshly cooked crayfish and local oysters, freshly baked baguettes and gourmet coffee, all to be enjoyed while looking out across the ocean. We also offer a range of products from our local smokehouse and small goods butcher. Wines are also available by mail order.

Mayfield Bay Coastal Reserve is a conservation area south of Swansea on Tasmania’s east coast. The Reserve is 15 minutes’ drive from Swansea (20 kilometres/12 miles) and 90 minutes north east of Hobart (115 kilometres/71 miles). Mayfield Bay’s sandy beach and coastal area offers good camping, fishing, swimming, surfing and diving, as well as wonderful views across Great Oyster Bay to Freycinet Peninsula. The reserve has shady trees and toilet facilities but you will need to bring your own drinking water and camping gear. This is a great spot to break your journey along the east coast, unpack a picnic and get out your camera. A little further north from Mayfield Bay you will find convict-built Spiky Bridge. This unusual looking bridge was built in the 1840s by a convict road gang. The bridge was built from local fieldstone with stones placed vertically along the parapet, giving the bridge its spiky appearance. It has been claimed that the spikes were designed to prevent cattle falling over the sides. There are interpretation signs here which give you some good information about the nearby Rocky Hills Probation Outstation convict ruins.

The Bark Mill is a restored mill and museum in Swansea on Tasmania’s east coast. The mill is Australia’s only restored Black Wattle Bark Mill, and possibly the only one in the world. The fully working mill demonstrates how bark from local black wattle trees was once crushed for export across the world. The bark is the basic ingredient used in tanning. The mill was established in 1885 and continued operation until the early 1960s. A visit here gives a fascinating insight into the ancient art of milling bark. The museum depicts the early history of the oldest rural municipality in Australia. Individual working displays depict life as it was in the 1800s. The descendants of the original settlers have loaned many items and photographs to the exhibition. The Bark Mill complex is opened daily. In addition to the Museum is a Tavern and Bakery making this the ideal place for a stop. The tavern and bakery cater for all meals. A large car park, good access for disabled, well appointed rest rooms and children’s playground completes the Bark Mill Tavern, Bakery and Museum complex. The Bark Mill is one hour 40 minutes’ drive (134 kilometres/84 miles) from Hobart.
