scamander sanctuary holiday park

Scamander Sanctuary Holiday Park offers self-contained accommodation and camping on the East Coast of Tasmania. Just an hour South of Bay of Fires, and an hour North of Wineglass Bay, it's the perfect accommodation base to explore the gems of the East Coast. The holiday park is a short 25 minutes North to St. Helens and 35 minute drive North to Binalong Bay. And head South for 40 minutes and you'll get to Bicheno with the Penguin Tours and the wildlife park - East Coast Naturepark. 

The surrounding area is peaceful and relaxing, making it a fantastic hub to explore the surrounding tourism attractions like the Bay of Fires and local vineyards and wildlife parks while being immersed in the natural beauty of Tasmania. You can hear the waves crashing from the accommodation and camp sites and there are plenty of walks to enjoy at the park's doorstep. 

Scamander Sanctuary Holiday Park was rated a "Top Pick" accommodation provider by Lonely Planet in 2015 and it's not surprising given the unique experience the park offers guests. The holiday park is family friendly and has fantastic facilities to make for a great stay including private clean shower stalls, free communal BBQs and camp kitchen and an impressive children's playground. 

Experience a taste of the outdoors while "camping" in true comfort and style in a permanent safari tent or bell tent, or book a powered or unpowered camp site and soak in the surroundings. The park has changed ownership recently and the new management team are committed to making your stay a satisfying and memorable experience. 

Totally unspoilt, the area enclosed within the vast acreage has gorgeous wildflowers, plentiful birdlife and a magical windswept Tassie beach...
