Tasmanian east coast accommodation, Scamander Beach Shack is located in a great position to explore the Bay of Fires and Freycinet Coast! Scamander Beach Shack is fully self-contained with uninterrupted views More of the Scamander River mouth and surfing beach. An ideal cosy getaway for a couple, family, keen surfers or fisherpersons! Walk for miles along the white sandy beaches and take in the pristine blue-green crystal waters! Surf out the front at the Scamander River mouth or nearby Shelly Point. Catch a bream off the old Scamander bridge or try your luck at beach fishing! Less
