Bridport in Tasmania's north-east is a popular beachside holiday destination overlooking Anderson Bay.
Surrounded by bushland reserves, white sand and the sloping vines of Pipers Brook wineries, Bridport is an ideal place to relax. The town's population of around 1,300 almost triples in summer when holidaymakers flock to this seaside town.
Bridport's main industries are tourism, vegetable farming and fishing. Its local specialties are scallops, lobster, and trout from Australia's first freshwater rainbow trout farm.
In spring, the wildflowers and birds are prolific in the Granite Point Coastal Reserve and Bridport Wildflower Reserve. Other nearby reserves have spectacular coastal views, waterfalls, white sand dunes and native wildlife.
Bridport is also home to Barnbougle Dunes, a classic links golf course considered one of the best in Australia and next door is its sister course - Lost Farm.
Also nearby is Bridestowe Estate Lavender Farm - one of the world's largest lavender oil producers.
Bridport is a 1-hr drive (85 km) north-east of Launceston.
