Getting There

Saffire Freycinet is located 2.5 hours’ drive from the major cities of Hobart and Launceston. Although allowing three hours for a comfortable drive is recommended.

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) the Coles Bay turn-off (C302) is to your right. The turn-off is very well signposted, but it can come upon you quickly. Saffire is about 25km along the Coles Bay Road on your right.

If you are heading to Saffire from Launceston, take the Midland Highway (A1) to Campbelltown and turn left onto the B34 heading towards Lake Leake. Continue along the B34 until you reach the Tasman Highway (A3). Turn left, heading north along the coast until you reach the Coles Bay turn-off (C302 – about 10km). Saffire is on the right about 25km along the 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.
