Dunalley (pop ~300) is located on an isthmus which connects the Forestier Peninsula to the Tasmanian "mainland". It is a successful fishing village, and the Denison Canal connects Frederick Henry Bay to the east coast; cars occasionally have to wait for the swing bridge to allow small vessels to pass through.

Dunalley was the site of the first European landing in Tasmania, in December 1642, and the Tasman Memorial bears testament to this event. Various cafes are located close to good art galleries and craft shops, which specialise in local pottery.
