Back in 1987 Tasland Developments company director, Ross Harrison purchased the Eastcoaster Resort at Orford and the Maria Island Ferry Service.
From 1987 to 2001, Ross ran the resort and the Maria Island Ferry very successfully. Back in those days the ferry ran direct from the Eastcoaster jetty and was hugley popular running at capacity numerous times every day.
From 2001 to 2015, the Eastcoaster management was leased out which unforunately lead to the business and the property deteriating to the point where a decision had to made to either sell the property or give it a complete make over.
In 2015, Ross decided to take back over the Eastcoaster and to undertake a full redevelopment and renovation of the entire property.
We have now completed 80% of our redevelopment plan and the Eastcoaster is today looking better than ever!
Last year we demolished the old tavern to make way for the construction of a spectacular over-water restaurant, the Spring Bay Seafood and Wine Bar.
The accommodation services have been given a huge make over with 40 rooms and 6 cabins all now fully renovated.
Both the indoor pool, spa and outdoor pool have been completely revamped and are very popular with guests.
A new gym and children's playground have also been installed and the list goes on and on.
We are currently building a new boat ramp, cleaning up the beach area and adding outdoor exercise areas along the top of our newly built sea walls.
It's great to see the Eastcoaster once again thriving as a fantastic family holiday destination as it did in years gone by.
There is also the possibility that the Maria Island Ferry Service may once again start to operate again from the Eastcoaster jetty soon.
The EastCoaster is back! So come and see what all the fuss is about...
