Hotel Address:Location Summary
- Saffire Freycinet
- 2352 Coles Bay Road
- Coles Bay
- Freycinet National Park, Tasmania
The Freycinet Peninsula extends south-eastwards from Tasmania’s coastline and is a fully protected national park, including the internationally acclaimed Wineglass Bay. Saffire is located on the inside of the gentle curve of sandy coastline that joins the peninsula to mainland Tasmania. Saffire overlooks the wide expanses of Great Oyster Bay, where migrating whales and dolphins come to play; calamari and squid in-season spawn in the rocky outcrops; local farms produce fresh, succulent oysters in some of the world’s cleanest waters; and fishing boats and trawlers bring in their daily catch of rock lobster, scallops and deep sea fish, dripping and salty-sweet straight from the ocean.
Directions to Hotel
Saffire is about 2.5 hours' drive from Hobart (195km), although we do recommend allowing three hours for a comfortable drive. Travelling from Hobart take the Tasman Highway (A3) to Sorell and continue up the East Coast through Orford and Swansea. Still travelling north along the Tasman Highway (A3) you come across the Coles Bay turnoff (C302) to your right. The turnoff is very well signposted, but it can come upon you quickly. From the turnoff, Saffire is approximately 25km along Coles Bay Road on your right. If you are heading to Saffire from Launceston (approximately 2.5 hours), take the Midland Highway (A1) to Campbell Town and turn left onto the B34 heading towards Lake Leake. Continue along the B34 until you reach the Tasman Highway (A3). From there turn left, heading north up the coast until you reach the Coles Bay turnoff (C302 - approximately 10 km). Saffire is on your right about 25km along Coles Bay Road. Driving at night, especially around dawn and dusk, can be hazardous as the wildlife is abundant at those times. Caution should be taken at any time however.
Food enthusiasts have the opportunity to cook alongside a master Saffire chef. In this one-hour cook-up you will learn how to prepare a famous, creative and delicious dish sure to impress loved ones. A must do activity for lovers of luxury dining!
