Introduction | List of Beaches

Walk with Cathy

The Plan

I set myself the impossible goal of exploring all of Tasmania’s beaches and coastline by either walking, cycling, kayaking or sailing.  I’m exploring some alone, but I’m also hoping to have the company of friends, family and dogs from time to time.  The dogs don’t need encouragement but friends and family may need to be bribed and I may need to bribe myself as this progresses.  So far the biggest challenge has been calling a halt to curiosity (release me, Sandy Bay Rivulet!) and  the easiest has been revising down this goal into a more manageable size! (For now!)

I had only planned to write a humble blog but as I’ve walked beaches  I felt a little more was needed to do this fabulous island justice and so the blog has grown into an embryonic website.

The chances are you’ve arrived here by accident.  I hope you’ll take the time to linger a little while.

Find this site on Instagram (@tasmanianbeaches), Facebook (Tasmanian Beaches) and on Twitter (@TasBeaches). There is also a photo gallery on this site.  If you have a photo you’d like to contribute please contact me.  If there’s a Tassie beach that means a lot to you, please tell me your story.  They’re threatened by sea level rise.  Let’s document some memories.
