Bridport is a popular beachside holiday destination, famous for its white sandy beaches, coastal parks and bushland reserves, and Barnbougle Dunes – one of the world's best public golf courses.
Overlooking Anderson Bay, Bridport offers excellent river and sea fishing, bushwalking and beach activities.
Relax into the holiday spirit of Bridport in summer where there's no shortage of summertime fun to be had and fresh seafood to be enjoyed. In fact, alfresco dining on local scallops, lobster and trout from Australia's first freshwater rainbow trout farm is a year-round pastime.
The Bridport Wildflower Reserve in the Granite Point Conservation Area bursts into vibrant colour in spring with spectacular wildflower displays and feeding birds. Other nearby reserves have spectacular coastal views, waterfalls, white sand dunes and native wildlife.
Barnbougle Dunes, Australia's top public golf course, and its neighbouring Lost Farm golf course are just east of Bridport and built on sand dunes to mirror the classic wild courses of Scotland.
At nearby Nabowla can be found the world's largest lavender oil producer, set on 260 acres of fragrant fields that bloom in December and January.
There are wineries in the area with cellar doors and Tassie's famous cool climate drops, and all kinds of places to eat, drink and stay, including plenty of sites for happy campers.
All types of accommodation are available in Bridport.
Bridport is a one-hour drive (85 km) north-east from Launceston.
