Margate is a small seaside town located on the Channel Highway between North-West Bay and the Snug Tiers, 7 kilometres south of Kingston in Tasmania, Australia.
Margate is a frequent 'pit-stop' for those travelling south towards Snug, Kettering or Bruny Island. Along the way visitors can marvel at the vineyards, grazing fields and stands of trees surround the town. The town itself has a range of shops, schools and religious buildings as well as several notable features including the Dru Point Bicentennial Park on the edge of North-West Bay.
In recent times the building boom in new housing development in the area has given birth to a number accommodation options for visitors to the area including budget motels, hotels and self contained holiday apartments.
