Swansea

Urban

The quiet, historic township of Swansea overlooks the sheltered waters of Great Oyster Bay with stunning views across to beautiful Freycinet National Park.
The town has lots of old-world charm with a rich colonial history and many interesting historic buildings. Schouten House was built in 1845; Resthaven – now known as Oyster Bay Guest House – in Franklin Street, was built in 1841; and All Saints Church on the corner of Noyes and Wellington Streets was completed in 1871.
Swansea is ideal for fishing, swimming, visiting vineyards or exploring the wonderful attractions nearby.
Just south of town is the unusual Spikey Bridge, constructed by convicts using fieldstones laid without mortar or cement.
Swansea is a 90-min drive (134 km) from Hobart and the same from Launceston.
