Wynyard is a relaxed seaside town famous for flat-topped Table Cape and fields of stunning tulips.
Located at the mouth of the Inglis River, Wynyard is a popular holiday spot for beach activities, ocean and river fishing, and lazy drives through picturesque landscapes. The local beaches are great for swimming, fishing, kayaking and waterside walks.
There are several cafes and second-hand shops as well as the Wynyard Foreshore Market, held on the first and third Sunday of each month.
Nearby, Table Cape is a dramatic landform that extends into Bass Strait with big views from the lookout and nearby lighthouse that are nothing short of spectacular.
Beautiful at any time of year with its patchwork fields and rich red soil perched above the sea, the area bursts into colour when the fields of tulips flower in spring,
More coastal wonders can be found at Fossil Bluff, a unique area rich in rare fossils where you can learn about the geology that created the Cape.,
Behind Wynyard are small villages dotted along country roads, each with broad views of beautiful patchwork green, gold and brown farmland. The town is a popular holiday spot and has a good range of places to stay, from campsites and backpackers to riverside motels.
Wynyard is a 45-min drive (60 km) west of Devonport.
