East Coast Wine Trail
Tasmania’s Great Eastern Drive is considered one of Australia’s greatest road trips. Full of discovery, the Great Eastern Drive will take you to some of Tasmania’s most scenic places, each with their own unique experiences.
From world class attractions like Wineglass bay in Freycinet National Park, award winning cheeses, the freshest seafood and of course, cool climate wines, there is so much to see and do!
If you're a wine lover, chances are you’ve heard of Tasmania’s cool climate wines and cannot wait to try them. The Great Eastern Drive takes you along the path of the East Coast Wine Trail, and straight to the coast’s outstanding cellar doors.
