Wynyard is a relaxed seaside town located along the scenic coastal Bass Highway, famous for its iconic tulip fields.
Located at the mouth of the Inglis River, the town is a popular holiday destination for beach and watersport activities including ocean and river fishing, kayaking, swimming and stunning coastal walks.
The town features several cafes and eclectic second-hand stores as well as the Wynyard Foreshore Market. If you enjoy a nostalgic journey through time, head to the Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition & Visitor Information Centre to discover the local heritage, maritime history, and unique geographical landmarks of the region. The gallery also exhibits a variety of locally crafted pieces.
Just a short drive is Wynyard’s most remarkable natural wonder, Table Cape, which dominates the coastline and offers spectacular views of Tasmania’s coast. Walk along the cliff-top track and explore the Table Cape Lighthouse, tours are available.
Table Cape is also home to the Table Cape Tulip Farm where acres of patchwork fields burst with colour each spring. To celebrate the blooming, The Annual Tulip Festival offers a weekend full of vibrant entertainment and attractions.
Explore more coastal wonders at the Fossil Bluff Conservation Area; a unique area where sandstone cliffs rise 30 meters above the beach and the erosion of the cliffs expose rare fossils.
