Coles Bay is approximately 2.5 Hours from either Hobart (195kms) or Launceston (175kms). If 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 to your right. From Launceston, take the Midland Highway (Route 1) to Campbell Town and turn left onto the B34 heading towards Lake Leake. Continue along the B34 until you reach the Tasman Highway (A3).
