Melshell Oyster Shack Dolphin Sands
Worth heading off the beaten track for this GEM! cute little caravan, tables with the best view and spot for the little ones to play.
I have to say these were the BEST OYSTERS I HAVE EVER HAD!!!!!! Well priced friendly staff great views.
Cape Raoul Port Arthur
We took the drive and walk down to Cape Raoul in the Port Arthur area about a month ago and it has to be one of the most amazing coastal views we have seen in a long time, possibly the best in Australia and Tasmania.
We went on an absolutely gorgeous day and although the walks was long, it was absolutely gorgeous!!!! It's harder walking back to the parking lot than it is to the cape, but the view is unbeatable.

Mt Amos Climb Coles Bay
The views the whole time are amazing - from the ascent and descent you get great views of Coles bay and from the summit great views of Wineglass bay.
That being said, it was an incredible adventure, scary and slippery at times but totally worth the scramble because the sense of accomplishment and the view from the summit was well and truly epic!
Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre Beaconsfield
In addition to mining history, the museum is jam packed with memorabilia spanning daily life, medicine, farming and regional development all housed within the historic compound of the site.
The museum is modern, large, well set-out and has a wide range of things to view.
