Called in on our way to Wine Glass Bay for a coffee, what a pretty spot, reminded me a bit of Rhyll, where we used to live on Phillip Island. Would be a great place to stay when basing yourself for trips and walks nearby, great fishing also.

A nice little town at the entry of the national park not too far from the car park from the wine glass bay walk. Accommodation is quite expensive and there are only a small number or restaurants available so it pays off to book in advance. Nice views from Honeymoon Bay of the hazard mountains and the bay.

Gorgeous location but it was too cold when we visited to take advantage of. Looks like good motor home facilities right on the beach. Will return on a warmer day.

Surprised that the National Park camp area doesn't show up as a caravan park. We got lucky, 3 nights on a beachside site. The north west winds howled over the top of us in the afternoon and evening but we were sheltered. With the beach only about 10 metres from our back door, this was our best spot so far... More

A place where u can whole time. Try to visit before u heading to wineglass bay and later just before the sunset must go there to see the colour changing scene of mountain and crystal clear water. Pizza and coffee shop will give u an extra vibrant on that time. Enjoy

For a top tourist destination Coles Bay seems to live on world wide awareness Wine Bay. The town is tired looking, lacks lustre and appeal and is expensive. Ashamed to admit this area is one of our icons

We arrived in the rain and were able to stay in a cabin ($150) because we couldn't set up camp in the rain! The Manager, John was helpful and after realising he cancelled our other 3 nights due to a misunderstanding, he was able to give us a great site! We loved Coles Bay! The IGA was terrible though as...

We spent two days here, around Australia Day. There are several lovely beaches within walking distance of the village. Most beaches are quite shallow and ideal for families. There is a good range of accom avail as well as a small selection of eateries. You can visit the Freycinet National Park, but it is $12 per person, or $24 a... More
