Live Like a Local in Shearwater

With undeniable natural beauty and a laidback lifestyle, Tasmania’s Shearwater has all the makings of the ultimate destination for a family-friendly holiday or romantic beachside escape.

There is no better way to immerse yourself in a new destination than in true local form, so we have uncovered Shearwater’s best-kept secrets that will have you experiencing the seaside suburb as the locals do.

1. Looking for a classic pub feed, range of brews and live tunes in a relaxed and friendly environment? Head to the Shearwater Resort Tavern, and enjoy the finest local fare just steps from your resort accommodation.

2. If you’re a keen angler, Port Sorell’s Jetty is a local favourite and one of the best spots in the area to catch a range of species from Whiting to Flathead and Australian Salmon.

3. Tasmania is renowned for its produce and the Devonport Farmers Market is your one-stop shop for all your fresh food needs. Held from 8:30am – 12:00pm at the Devonport Showgrounds on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, stock your basket with everything from seasonal produce to gourmet bread and fresh cut flowers.

4. Walk, run or cycle the iconic Shearwater Esplanade, with unbeatable views of the popular Freers Beach, a popular spot amongst the local families to spend long summer days at the beach.

5. If you’re a golfing enthusiast, tee off at Shearwater Country Club. Guaranteeing top quality facilities, the 9-hole course is also very conveniently located at the Classic Managed Shearwater Resort.

6. Despite their size, Fairy Penguins are one of the region’s biggest attractions. With numerous tours offered across the coast, see these little feathered friends as the locals do at Point Sorell where you can often catch sight of them waddling up the beach.

7. The 66 hectare Arboretum Tree Park is one of the region’s best-kept secrets, and is a popular spot for locals to exercise, have family picnics and simply relax under the Tasmanian sun.

8. Order restaurant-quality fish and chips straight off the boat from Arch’s Catch and head to the beach for a picnic while overlooking the same ocean your meal was caught in.
