Swansea is a coastal town in Tasmania.

Understand

The historic township of Swansea is ideal for fishing, swimming and diving, or relaxing on the beach overlooking Great Oyster Bay and the beautiful Freycinet National Park.

Swansea has a population of 530, housed in colonial buildings, contemporary homes and classic beachside shacks.

Swansea was first explored by Captain Cox in 1798 and was settled as a military post in 1827. Local Aboriginal people moved further inland as European whalers explored the coast.

Swansea enjoys temperate weather all year round, with an average maximum of 22 degrees Celsius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in January and 14 degrees Celsius (57 degrees Fahrenheit) in June.

Swansea is 134 kilometres (83.2 miles) from Hobart, along the A3.
