16 Beautiful Places To Watch The Sunrise In Tasmania

16 Beautiful Places To Watch The Sunrise In Tasmania

If you are a big fan of saying hello to the sun, then you’re probably keen to find new locations to see this beauty. We’ve put together a list of a few special places to watch the sunrise across Tasmania, that might tickle your fancy.

  1. kunanyi/Mt Wellington – arrive at first light to watch the city lights slowing dim as the sun begins to rise and take time to appreciate a beautiful moment in nature.
  2. Tessellated Pavement, Tasman Peninsula – facing east, the sunrises here are always stunning and when combined with the reflections off the water, are a photographer’s delight.
  3. Truganini Lookout, The Neck, Bruny Island – There are plenty of beautiful beaches to take a sunrise stroll along Bruny Island but watching the sky light up from the Truganini Lookout at the Bruny Island Neck is a bit of a favourite.
  4. Hartz Mountains National Park – There’s nothing quite like watching the sunrise or set from the mountain peaks. It might be a little extra effort but if you are willing and able, then Hartz Peak is a must.
  5. Spring Beach – head down to the water and watch the sunrise over Maria Island.
  6. Cosy Corner north, Bay of Fires – see why it’s really called the bay of fires (it’s not just the rocks when the sky turns it on).
  7. Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Coles Bay – a cape, a lighthouse and endless eastern views over the ocean. What could be a better way to start your day?
  8. Kelvedon Beach with Boatshed – The old boat shed sitting picturesquely on the point overlooking Great Oyster Bay and Schouten Island is one you can’t miss on the Great Eastern Drive.
  9. Cube Rock, South Mt Cameron – Cube Rock offers plenty of photo stops and a perfect position to watch the sunrise from the summit.  For a double dose of natural wonder take in the azure waters of Little Blue Lake at the track’s starting point.  
  10. Ben Lomond – One of the best places in Tasmania to feel like you’re on top of the world. Head up and look out over the Northern Midlands.
  11. Low Head – a sunrise with an iconic lighthouse, what could be better?
  12. Mount Strzelecki, Flinders Island – the highest point on Flinders Island, prepare to be awestruck and not just by the views.
  13. Disappointment Bay, King Island – Be anything but disappointed as you settle in for a sunrise on this beautiful beach. The long stretches of white sand, occasionally broken by large, enigmatic rocks are perfect for walking, swimming, surfing, paddling or just generally lolling. 
  14. Mount Owen, West Coast – The top of this mountain boasts a 360-degree view of dams, mountains, the towns and more.
  15. Table Cape Lookout, Wynyard – The magnificent plateau of Table Cape is one of Wynyard’s most remarkable natural wonders.  As you drive to the top of the remains of a 12 million-year-old volcano you’ll reach a viewing platform where, on a clear day, you can see George Town’s Low Head and mountain ranges over 175 kilometres away.
  16. Mersey Bluff lighthouse, Devonport – This smartly striped lighthouse has been watching over the bass strait since the late nineteenth century. Arrive early to marvel at the coastlines and nearby views.
