Get away from west winter at one of the lovely Tasmanian beaches. Tasmania has got something for all tastes. If you enjoy following the most crowdy tourist destinations, you'll love Bay of Fires, Scamander and Opossum Bay.

On the other hand, if you don't feel like having a lot of neighbours around and want to relax in private, pick one of the most secluded sea coasts. Try quaint Yellow Rock Beach or Whalebone Beach on King Island and White Horses Beach if you don't like to move around the island so much.
