WATERHOUSE & Tomahawk

WATERHOUSE beach is a beautiful, long stretch of white sand in a conservation area on the coast of north eastern Tasmania. It is a magical place, where you can walk along the sands for many kilometres without meeting another soul. Tasmanians come here to fish and relax. Naturally the only facility is a shop at the Tomahawk caravan park. The the nearest large town is BRIDPORT.

From the Waterhouse Point locality you are 30 minutes from TOMAHAWK BEACH, BRIDPORT and GLADSTONE.

You are 60 minutes from DERBY, GEORGE TOWN, SCOTTSDALE, ANSONS BAY and MUSSELROE BAY, while St HELENS is 90 minutes away.

Nearby places are describe in the REGION NORTH EAST, ANSONS BAY, BRIDPORT, MUSSELROE BAY, SCOTTSDALE and DERBY pages.


View Region North East in a larger map. Unfortunately, you need to go to Google's Page 2 map to see all the features that I marked on this map.

FACILITIES: There are no facilities at Waterhouse. It is a boat launching and camping area. There is a settlement at Tomahawk with a store at the caravan park. The nearest shopping precinct is at at BRIDPORT. There is some accommodation near WATERHOUSE and much accommodation at BRIDPORT.

SIGHTS: Waterhouse is a very beautiful beach hideaway on Ringarooma Bay in north eastern Tasmania. It is a lovely place only known to Tasmanians.

However, any persons using any beaches in Tasmania should first ascertain how safe they are for swimming, as many beaches are not signed for their hazards.

TOMAHAWK Beach to the east is also very lovely. It is a really great place to get away from it all, as there are rarely many people there.

There are many gravel roads and tracks in the Waterhouse area that are good for walking, as the terrain is relatively flat. There is also lots of wild life, as this is a conservation area.

ACCOMMODATION:

ROUTE: From LAUNCESTON drive north on the A8 East Tamar Highway to just before GEORGE TOWN, where you turn east onto B82 Bridport Road. Follow this past BRIDPORT to the Waterhouse turnoff, where you turn north onto a gravel road that takes you 10 kilometres north to Waterhouse Point.

From the A3 Tasman Highway turn north at SCOTTSDALE onto B84, which travels towards BRIDPORT. When it crosses B82, just before BRIDPORT, turn east and drive towards the Waterhouse Road and turn north onto the gravel road that takes you 10 kilometres north to Waterhouse Point. Note that the gravel roads in this area can be very rough and even dangerous.

Further east of the Waterhouse Beach road is C836 the paved road to the Tomahawk settlement and beach.
