Mayfield Bay Conservation Area Free Camp

​​​​​Mayfield Bay Conservation Area is a popular stop-off on the Great Eastern Drive self-drive experience. The area was initially reserved in 1981 for its diverse natural and cultural values.
The reserve is loved by locals who regularly return, but also interstate and international travellers looking for a coastal camping option.​
Here you can watch eagles soar overhead and hear the waves roll onto the beach. Vantage points offer superb views across Great Oyster Bay towards the Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island.

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania's deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
