Heading south from St Helens, take the high road, climbing off the coast to the charming town of St Marys and the unique Cranks and Tinkerers Museum, featuring one man's collection of pretty much everything.
The quirky spirit of St Marys is tangible when you stop for lunch at Purple Possum Wholefoods and Cafe, which has a gallery of local art and a bric-a-brac shed. Try the vegetarian burger and the rhubarb cake – you won’t be disappointed.
Return along Elephant Pass Road to the shores and make for Bicheno. If the tide is low, it's often possible to walk across the exposed sand spit to Diamond Island at Bicheno's northern end, or if there's a swell you'll likely find the Bicheno Blowhole doing its thing.
Tonight, indulge in the freshest seafood you’ll ever try at the Lobster Shack Tasmania.
Bicheno's nightlife is truly wild – watch little penguins waddle ashore with Bicheno Penguin Tours, or join a Devils in the Dark tour at East Coast Natureworld, to observe Tasmanian devils living nocturnally.
Stay overnight in Bicheno.
