Located on the Waterhouse passage on the north eastern coast of Tasmania, the Mathers East campground offers all the benefits of a campground on the beach, including fishing, swimming and boating.
The Mathers East camping ground is reasonably easy to access. Turn north off B82, 27km north east of Bridport onto Homestead road. Then turn left after 12.4km for 800m. The combined 13km road into the campsite is a gravel road that can easily be accessed by a two wheel drive and caravan.
The camping ground offers around ten individual campsites. It can get pretty windy up this way, so grab a sheltered spot, for a more enjoyable trip.
The boat ramp and Waterhouse passage make a great combination to launch a boat, do a bit of swimming, or fishing.
Best Time To Go
The proximity of the campground to the beach makes it more appropriate to visit this campsite in the warmer months.
