The France to Freycinet 2012 Festival offers events mostly centred in and around the history-rich hamlet of Swansea. This peaceful seaside town boasts a number of quality, heritage Bed and Breakfasts, as well as other boutique and budget accommodation options. World class dining and cellar doors, oyster and berry farms, make this an ideal place to base yourself for the festival and to explore the rest of the Freycinet Coast.
Half and hour down the coast from Swansea, the twin towns of Triabunna and Orford offer history, beauty and relaxation, as well as a jumping off point to breathtaking Maria Island. Triabunna will host the first weekend of festival activities, showcasing local and Noumean artists' works and encouraging exploration of the French history and natural beauty of Maria Island.
Travelling north from Swansea you will find Bicheno, a charming fishing and tourist stop with ample places to stay and good food to eat.
Coles Bay lies at the heart of the Freycinet Peninsula, and puts you within walking distance of a range of activities on land and sea.
