Towards Lake Leake (west of Swansea), the Lost Falls and Meetus Falls are worth a detour. There are two vineyards, Sping Vale and Craigie Knowe, near Cranbrook (just north of Swansea). Close to town is the Swansea Bark Mill, used to process black wattle bark, which was used in pioneering days for tanning leather.
Swansea has one 4½-star, eight 4-star and three 3½-star accommodation facilities (RACT rated), in addition to a youth hostel. It is a short (1:30) drive from Hobart.
