Life in Bridport

Bridport is a popular beachside town on the north coast of Tasmania. Bridport is very popular amongst holiday-makers, well known for its breathtaking ocean views, pristine beaches, fishing, hiking and bushwalking opportunities. Its small sheltered harbour makes it a thriving little port, with a bustling seafood industry supplying the local takeaways and restaurants.

Bridport is also home to Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm Golf Courses, both ranked in the world’s top 25 by Golf Digest magazine, with the Dunes course ahead of the iconic Pebble Beach course in California and Kingston Heath in Melbourne. Ruthless marram grass, wide open fairways and exquisite hole layouts in the dunes just behind the beach make for an unforgettable challenge. Bridport is also a great spot for river or sea fishing, and the Bridport Wildflower Reserve is worth a visit for a spectacular display of colour.

The surrounding area offers many world class attractions and a rich diversity of things to see and do. Blue Derby, Tasmania’s world-renowned mountain biking park, is located in temperate rainforest about 40 minutes’ drive away. The 100km network of Blue Derby Trails encompass some of the most stunning landscapes in the state.
