Swansea is a beautiful historic township located 134 kilometres from Hobart, 133 kilometres from Launceston and 67 kilometres from Campbell Town.
The first European to explore the Swansea area was a Captain Cox sailing the brig Mercury from England to Sydney Town. Numerous sailors passed through the bay over the next twenty years but it wasn't until the 1820s that Europeans settled in the district.
Interesting buildings include the Council Chambers, Morris' General Store and the Swansea Bark and East Coast Museum, telling the history of the area.
Set on the Great Oyster Bay, Swansea also offers fantastic scenery, and is a beautiful place to stay. There is a variety of accommodations around the town, with something to suit every taste. There are also some great seafood restaurants in the area.
