Triabunna (pop ~800) is located on Spring Bay just north of Orford. Formerly a garrison town for the convict settlement on Maria Island, it progressed from a whaling base and its economy is now centred around woodchipping and the scallop & abalone fishing industries.
Tours of the woodchip plant are available, and local beaches are good for swimming, fishing and water skiing. Triabunna has a youth hostel for backpackers.
