Greens Beach is a small settlement on the north coast  of Tasmania where  you can enjoy a blissful escape from the crowds for a week or more, perhaps a short stay as part of a tour of Tasmania, or even a quick weekend getaway less than an hours flight from Melbourne.  You'll soon discover that Tasmania is an island state that has it all – a fascinating and well preserved colonial history, unspoilt wilderness, exotic wildlife, and a vibrant arts, craft, food and wine culture.  And much to the delight of international visitors to Greens Beach,  kangaroos really do hop down the main street.

There's a safe swimming beach, a picturesque nine-hole golf course, public tennis courts, friendly locals, and access to a beautiful coastal trail through Narawntapu National Park, containing several even more secluded beaches where you can swim and relax in absolute privacy.  Other attractions include the Beaconsfield gold mine museum, Platypus House,  and dozens of world class wineries;   while the spectacular scenery and walks of Cradle Mountain National Park, the famous Barnbougle Golf Course, and penguin viewing every evening at Low Head, are all within an hour or two scenic drive.
