Location

page_location_2

The Freycinet Peninsula extends south-eastwards from Tasmania’s coastline and is a fully protected national park, including the internationally acclaimed Wineglass Bay. Saffire is located on the inside of the gentle curve of sandy coastline that joins the peninsula to mainland Tasmania.
 
Saffire overlooks the wide expanses of Great Oyster Bay, where migrating whales and dolphins come to play; calamari and squid in-season spawn in the rocky outcrops; local farms produce fresh, succulent oysters in some of the world’s cleanest waters; and fishing boats and trawlers bring in their daily catch of rock lobster, scallops and deep sea fish, dripping and salty-sweet straight from the ocean.
 
The dominant view from Saffire’s every window is the pink-hued granite of the peninsula’s Hazards Mountains, providing a spectacular and ever-changing backdrop from morning to nightfall.

History

Location of Saffire Freycinet Hotel in Coles Bay, Tasmania, Australia

The Freycinet Peninsula took over 400 million years to form into two massive, eroded blocks of granite, now known as the Hazards mountains and Mt Graham/Mt Freycinet.

These granite monoliths are tenuously joined by a sand isthmus, which spans the celebrated Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach.
