The one and only Tassie.

The Australian coast is perfect for amateur and professional surfers. From the Pacific Ocean to the Indian and Southern Oceans, the great, surfing waves in Australia are world renowned. But do be careful, as surfing is a dangerous sport. Pay attention to reports of sharks, jellyfish and strong currents and do not surf alone.

Close to Hobart hit the waters of Clifton and Park Beaches. The surfing beaches are mainly concentrated on the east coast and there are more than 20 to choose from. In the extreme south of Tasmania is Bruny Island for the more intrepid surfers, with big surf waves at Cloudy BayBass Strait also offers impressive waves, and close to Marrawah, Tasmania's most eastern city, are the biggest waves on the island. Surfers of all levels are welcome at Greens. Many of the roads in these areas are not tarred and a 4x4 vehicle is strongly recommended. 

The east coast is also the most diverse area on the island for scuba diving. There are 11 good dive spots between Binalong Bay and the Tasmanian Peninsula. The waters are so clear that visibility can be good up to 30 metres down. Enjoy the sea dragons and seahorses at Waubus Bay, the sea anemones at Governos Island and the seals in the caves at Seals' Islands.
