History buffs staying in a comfortable cottage in Swansea will relish the chance to participate in the bi-annual France to Freycinet Festival held in Swansea in May.

The Freycinet Peninsula owes its name to this expedition, and had the English captain Matthew Flinders not hurried to settle Hobart and claim Kings Island for the British crown, Tasmania could easily have become a French colony. Visitors with accommodation in the Swansea town centre will enjoy losing themselves in this slice of franco-mania.
Backpackers can self cater from a comfortable backpackers lodge in Swansea, just outside the town centre and explore the rugged eastern Tasmanian coastline from, and families booked into a central holiday home will enjoy the proximity to the beach and waterfront esplanade in this beautiful Tasmanian town.
