Recherche Bay

In the late 18th century, Britain and France were competing to chart and explore new worlds. The French visits to the north-east peninsula of Recherche Bay were responsible for a wealth of new information about Tasmania. Recherche Bay can only be reached by boat. It is possible to land on the beach but there are no walking trails through the area and it is best experienced from the water.
