North-eastern Tasmania is a region of startling variety. The sweeping white-sand beaches of Freycinet and Mt William National Parks are among Tasmania's most beautiful attractions. Set against a backdrop of forested slopes and pink granite peaks, Wineglass Bay has been voted one of the world’s best beaches by Outback magazine and the staff of travel guide Frommer's. Farther north, near the fishing village of St Helens, golden sand dunes roll towards turquoise ocean. At twilight, Bennetts wallabies venture out to feed on the grasslands near Mt William, while the rocky shorelines, marshes, heath and woodlands of Flinders Island are a resting post for thousands of migratory birds.
