Coles Bay, on the north edge of the Freycinet National Park, is the only settlement; a village spread along a sheltered inlet where fishing boats bob before The Hazards, three striking peaks – Amos, Dove and Mayson – that rise from the sea and are especially impressive at sunset when their pink granite glows. Since the 1930s, the village has been the base for the park, for fishing and for recreation, and there are numerous holiday houses for rent.
