Stop At: Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay Road, Coles Bay, Freycinet, Tasmania 7215 Australia
Freycinet National Park is a hiker’s delight! Join us for a hike to the Wineglass Bay Lookout and then onwards to Wineglass Bay Beach. This has been voted as one of the Top 10 Beaches in the world!
We depart Hobart heading east driving along the beautiful eastern coastline of Tasmania. We pass through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as we make our way north to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes. Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and amazing walking trails.
As we enter the Freycinet peninsula, we have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters fresh from the surrounding waters, then it’s onwards to get our hike underway.
The first half of the walk today is to the Wineglass Bay Lookout. You can choose to walk to the lookout with our Tour Guide at a leisurely pace and enjoy the interpretation and discussion along the way, or, walk at your own pace and make the most of the time you have in this magical area. The uphill walk to the lookout should take around 45 minutes and from here you are well rewarded with views across the Bay. From the lookout, you are free and independent to enjoy the rest of the day’s hiking.
The total length of the Wineglass Bay lookout and beach trail is 6 kms return and usually takes around 2 hours of walk time. We normally have around 3+ hours for the activity – which gives you plenty of time for the main trail and then time to explore, relax, or swim on the beach. The 20 minute walk to the southern end of the beach is fantastic for those amazing views of the Hazard mountains!
The return walk is an uphill hike back up to the Lookout, and then it’s all downhill retracing your steps to the start of the walking trail, where our Tour Guide will meet you ready for our return to Hobart.
However, a great beach hike and day out is simply not complete without a stop at the delicious Kate’s
Berry Farm! Kate’s cafe “Just Desserts” is serving up some delectable Berry ice-creams and other sweet delights with home-made jams, sauces, chocolates and jellies all available. This is the perfect sweet way to finish off our Wineglass Bay hiking adventure before returning to Hobart.
We return to your Hobart City accommodation around 6.30pm.
