Coles Bay

Driving down the road from Bicheno heading towards Port Arthur we passed some of the most stunning scenery Tasmania has to offer. Only we didn’t know it before we came to Tassie, therefore did not allow enough time to visit the area. We did allow for a short hike though so did get to see some of the scenery. So a word of advice from me, spend some time looking around the Coles Bay/Freycinet Peninsula area, it really is stunning, to see it properly you need to allow for a couple of days to do the Freycinet Peninsula Circuit.

 

Not too far south of the town of Swansea, we came across a sign for Kate’s Berry Farm. It was after lunch and the sign said ‘ice-cream’ and we were in the mood. Wow, what a discovery! This little berry farm didn’t look like too much from the street but the produce sold here is absolutely delicious.  We had our ice-cream outside while enjoying the beautiful view and playing with Kate’s little dogs, then went back inside and bought some of the most scrumptious jam I have ever tried and a bottle of Strawberry Wine, all made by Kate using all her own berries. Our visit was the wrong time of year for the fresh berries, but that didn’t really matter.
