If you are looking for a quiet beach holiday with some of the world's most stunning beaches, then look no further than Scamander, Tasmania, Australia -- it can offer you all of these things! Nestled about halfway along the coast between the bustling seaside town of St. Helen's and the mountain town of St. Mary's, you will find one of Tasmania's most hidden gems. On the inlet, you will find that Scamander not only has a stunning white sand beach, which stretches for miles in each direction, but it also has an inlet with a river which is popular for fishing and swimming in as well. The river leads up to the Scamander Reserve, where you will find barbecues and other facilities used by the campers that you can use for the day. Otherwise in an evening you can chill out with some of the locals at the Scamander pub.

Your option for a Scamander hostel will place you on the main highway as you drive through the town. There is a bus station here, but you will need to check the frequency and times of these if you choose to travel here in a bus. If you came in a car, things will be more accessible to you both amenities wise and sightseeing wise. Take a twenty-minute drive to St. Helen's to stock up on more things that you may need during your stay if you can't get them at the small local supermarket. St. Helen's is home to larger supermarkets and other shops whereas Scamander doesn't have as much of this on offer.

If you do have a car, which is the most recommended form of transport for traveling through Tasmania, it is also recommended that you do a couple of day trips from Scamander to some of the national parks around the area. Tasmania's national parks are world class. Up toward the north you have Mount William National Park and the Bay of Fires. As you head south from here you will hit Freycinet National Park, home to the most-photographed beach in Tasmania.

Whatever you choose to do here, you will certainly feel calm and relaxed. It's a little piece of heaven hidden away from the world.
