Triabunna is a fishing port town, located just up the coast from Orford. It is the second largest town on the East Coast of Tasmania. As the first rural municipality in Australia, Triabunna features many surviving colonial buildings. The town was founded in 1830 as a station for the 63rd Regiment. Since then it has been an important fishing and port town, and during the convict era was a hub for goods and passengers travelling between Hobart and the East Coast. Triabunna is the Tasmanian mainland port for the Maria Island ferries. Visitors to the historic sites on Maria Island can watch the fishing vessels, wildlife (including dolphins and whales, if you are lucky) and scenery as the ferry heads out through Spring Bay into the Mercury Passage.
