Carving Out A Lifestyle

East Beach Tourist Park

 I popped in yesterday to meet the owner of the East Beach Tourist Park, at Low Head and discovered a delightful lady whose husband passed away around a year ago, leaving her to carve out a lifestyle with their developing caravan/tourist park.

East Beach Tourist Park at Low Head has a unique facade which attracts tens of thousands of visitors per year.  

The striking Macrocarpa wood carvings are the work of Eddie Freeman and was commissioned by the late Kenneth Plumstead, the previous park owner and is the largest privately owned collection of it's type in Australia. 

The park is now owned and run by Theresa, Kenneth's wife.

 With these exquisite tree carvings at the front door and East Beach and the Bass Straight at the rear, this park is the ideal place to spend a day, or a month, exploring the region.

Just 40 minutes from Launceston, East Beach Tourist Park is located right on beautiful East Beach, at historic Low Head. It is only 5 minutes from all the facilities and attraction that George Town and Low Head offers ,  but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility in a natural setting - perfect for the tourist to set up base and explore the historic region and further afield, while also ideal as a weekend escape for locals


The park's website contains dozens of photos of the park and surrounding region and is packed with information to both excite and guide you on your journey.

Be advised, however, that the site's contact links are currently being upgraded and those seeking advice or to make a booking should ring the park at +61 (03) 6382 1000.
