The South East region is home to two separate municipalities, Tasman and Sorell. together they occupy the south east corner of the state from Sorell through to the Tasman peninsula.
Sorell is one of Tasmania’s oldest farming towns with some notable history-heritage sites like St George’s church and the Sorell Barracks and only a 30min drive from Hobart.
The Tasman Peninsula features a rugged eastern coastline with spectacular rock formations, many of which are easily accessed by car. Don’t miss the opportunity to see The Blowhole and Tasman Arch while you are here. This coast has claimed a number of ships which struck the Rocks off it’s eastern shores. Today much of of the southern peninsula is the Tasman National Park and offers visitors stunning views and bushwalks.
Also on the peninsula is the world heritage listed Port Arthur historic site, one of Australia’s most important heritage sites and tourist destinations. A number of tours are available at Port Arthur including the evening ‘Ghost Tour’ and well worth the time to learn the area’s rich history.
