Quiet secluded bays, dusty pink granite peaks and turquoise blue waters. The Freycinet National Park is undoubtedly Tasmanian paradise. On an Experiential walking tour with us, you’ll have the opportunity to kick off your shoes and enjoy a cuppa on the squeaky shores of Wineglass Bay, stride empty white beaches to hidden bays for a gourmet picnic lunch, before conveniently boarding a boat from the depths of the peninsula to retrace your sandy steps across the water.
Time: 8:00am – 1:30pm (5.5 hours)
Start/Finish: Freycinet Lodge
Group Size: 8 guests (minimum 2)
The Freycinet Walking Tour starts by meeting your Experiential guide in the Freycinet Lodge for an introduction and briefing. Maps of the Freycinet Peninsula will be enthusiastically unfolded and your path ahead for the day will be traced before boarding our vehicle for the short drive to the start of our walking adventure.
With an early start to beat the crowds, we begin our day’s walk along Freycinet’s most popular trail to the Wineglass Bay viewing platform. At the end of this 45 minute climb, you will be rewarded with a picture perfect view of stunning Wineglass Bay. From this elevated perspective of the Peninsula sitting to the south, your guide will point out the route ahead into the less frequented corners of the National Park.
After a short descent, the eucalypt trees open to expose the magical destination that is Wineglass Bay. Kick off your shoes and feel the squeaky white sand beneath your toes while your guide brews a cuppa perched on the red lichen topped rocks unique to this coast. A morning tea picnic location one can only dream of.
After soaking in one of Australia’s most famed beaches, we journey across the peninsula to Hazard’s Beach. Less visited but by no means less impressive, we continue the journey south along this stunning stretch of empty beach. Leaving only our footprints, you’ll learn of the furry, feathered and scaled creatures that call this special place home and the history behind it’s gorgeous shores and red granite peaks.
In a cosy cove perfect for swimming and relaxing, a delicious picnic style lunch is served, inspired and sourced from local Tasmanian businesses. Feeling relaxed and more connected, we step straight off the sand onto the Freycinet Aqua Taxi which will transport us directly back to the Freycinet Lodge jetty. Seeing the peninsula from the water only enhances the appreciation for this magical destination as one of Tasmania’s most beautiful natural destinations.
