Triabunna is a rural residential locality about 86 kilometres (53 mi) north-east of the town of Hobart with a population (2016 census) of 874.

It is a coastal town on the Tasman Highway, and is sheltered within Spring Bay at the mouth of MacCleans Creek and Vickerys Rivulet. The nearest township is Orford, 6 kilometres to the south on the far side of the bay.

Triabunna is a scenic township surrounded by beaches, hills and beautiful tracts of eucalyptus forest, with excellent views of Maria Island, which can be reached by a short ferry ride from the town.

The area contains many historic buildings from Tasmania's colonial period.

The town offers accommodation, shops, galleries and tearooms and the local marina is a great place to sample the succulent local scallops, mussels and abalone while taking in the view.
