Welcome to the Break O’Day municipality on the magnificent East Coast of Tasmania!

We can understand why you would want to live in one of our beautiful townships because, let’s be honest we have everything; beautiful beaches, including the internationally acclaimed Bay of Fires, rainforests and serene bush as well as a range of various services.

Most importantly there is plenty to see and do from surfing, bush walking, mountain biking including the internationally acclaimed Blue Derby trails on the Blue Tier, snorkelling, diving, fishing – including some of the best game fishing in Tasmania, sporting facilities including an award winning stadium that hosts State League Netball Games as well as local sports and much, much more.

If you are looking for the perfect life / work balance you have come to the right place!

If you would like one of our New Resident Kits which contain information on the area as well as Council services including waste collection calendars, please give the office a call on 6376 7900 or send an email to and we can mail one out to you or you can just come and collect one over the front counter.
