Where to Swim

HOBART

KINGSTON BEACH.

KINGSTON (HOBART)

Only a 10 minutes drive from the centre of Hobart, Kingston Beach is a great location to swim, relax on the beach or spend time at one of the local cafes opposite the beach. The beach is also nearby to walking tracks that follow the rocky coast-line and shops.

DISTANCE Hobart - Kingston Beach: 15 minutes (car)

CLIFTON BEACH.

SOUTH ARM

A slightly longer car-ride across the Derwent to South Arm, it is worth the road trip. Secluded on the western side of the South Arm peninsula, this beach stretches around Clifton Beach Conservation Area, with nearby local holiday homes and the rise of the landscape as a back-drop. Perfect for the family or geta-away location.

DISTANCE Hobart - Clifton Beach: 30 minutes (car)

 

LAUNCESTON

Where to Swim

CATARACT GORGE.

LAUNCESTON

Offering both swimmings in the First Basin or public outdoor swimming pool, in summer, the Cataract Gorge is an enjoyable location to enjoy the water or spend time with friends and family on the First Basin lawns. Only a 10-minute drive from the centre of town, the Cataract Gorge also offers an array of short-walks, lookouts and cafes (toilets available also).

DISTANCE: Launceston - Cataract Gorge: 10 minutes (car)

TURNERS BEACH.

NORTH-WEST TASMANIA (TURNERS BEACH)
