Triabunna - Sleep

Triabunna
Pleasant port on the east coast near Maria Island.
Located 88 km north east of Hobart on the Tasman Highway, Triabunna (the word is reputedly an Aboriginal term for a native hen) is a pleasant working port which started life as a garrison town for the penal colony on Maria island. Today it is a town driven largely by its fishing industry (it is known for its scallops and abalone) and the huge woodchip mill at Point Home (it can be clearly seen from the ferry across to Maria Island).

Tomahawk - Fast Facts

Tomahawk
Quiet beach resort on the north coast
It is one of the peculiarities of Tasmania's north coast that the beach resort towns to the east of the Tamar River are sleepy and unassuming. The resort towns between Devonport and Smithton are more highly developed and more popular. This has more to do with access to the beaches rather than the quality of the destinations. A town like Tomahawk, which is so quiet it has little more than a caravan park and a general store, is in the heart of a coastal country characterised by superb beaches, dramatic sand dunes and attractive, isolated countryside. It is an ideal destination for people wishing to escape from the hurly burly and have a peaceful holiday walking on the beach, swimming or fishing.
