The accommodation at Hamptons on the Bay is on the water front and includes 7 cabins and a luxury house. The accommodation is located on 10 acres of ocean front land abutting the coastal reserve and “Freemans Beach”

Wake to awe inspiring sunrises over the hazards mountains – Mt Graham and Mt Freycinet – in the Freycinet National Park on the peninsula.

All of the East Coast attractions such as Coles bay, Wineglass Bay and Schouten and Maria islands and the Eastern Forests are a drive away. Hamptons is on the main tourist route through the East Coast Wine Region and on the way to Bicheno, St Helens, Binalong Bay and the famous Bay of Fires in the north east.

Hamptons can also provide the perfect venue for weddings and corporate events, as well as yoga and art retreats. Over one-third of the property is undisturbed natural bush land and a voluntary “land for wildlife” conservation zone.

All of the accommodation has expansive views over Great Oyster Bay and perfectly located for a relaxed, romantic weekend getaway for couples or a group of like minded friends wanting to explore Tasmania’s East Coast.

A romantic, private and peaceful holiday location.


The property was originally farming land owned by the Freeman Family.

In 1992, a Japanese restaurant “Kabuki by the Sea” was opened by Terry Lanning and Michi Nakanishi, who previously operated three restaurants in Sydney and the first accommodation units were constructed.

In 2013 Terry and Michi retired and the restaurant closed and the new owners renovated the cabins and converted the restaurant into a 3 bedroom luxury house.
