Beaumaris Beach Guest House on the magnificent east coast of Tasmania provides the ideal base for exploring the beauty of nature while indulging in fresh seafood and a range of exceptional quality regional foods with tastes to delight many a foodie.  A short walk beside Reedy Creek brings you to the pristine white sands and clear waters of Beaumaris surf beach.  Easy drives north or south will give access to a range of beaches and inland waterfalls, world class mountain bike trails, fishing spots, golf courses, and wildlife reserves. 

Original art works decorate the walls of the Guest House, including pieces offered for sale.  A complementary cheese plate is provided with each booking, and the Guest House is able to provide evening meals for guests who wish to relax in its spacious and comfortable rooms.  Internet access, board games, and books are available, with the opportunity to reflect in front of a wood fire at the end of the day.  Enjoy a breakfast featuring local produce in the shared dining room before exploring the solitude of the Bay of Fires, untouched Freycinet, or the historical Trail of the Tin Dragon.  The nearby villages of St Helens, Scamander and St Marys provide the opportunity to engage with locals and visitors from across the world while enjoying a variety of events during the year.
