Itinerary

Itinerary

Freycinet National Park is a hiker’s delight!  With a network of trails ranging from 10 minutes to 10 days.  The premier walk here is to the Wineglass Bay Lookout and then onwards to the Wineglass Bay Beach.   One of Tasmania’s most celebrated walks and locations!

We depart Hobart heading east to 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, it’s a fairly steep downhill hike to reach the beach where you can walk barefoot along the white sand.

The total length of the Wineglass Bay lookout and beach trail return is 6 km and usually takes around 2.5 hours of walk time. We normally have around 3.5 – 4 hours for the activity – which gives you plenty of time for the main trail and then time to explore the beach as well. The 20-minute walk to the southern end of the beach is fantastic for those amazing views of The Hazards mountains. Or, take the time to enjoy your lunch, relax, and on those summer days – there is time for a swim in the clear blue waters!

The return walk is a steep uphill hike back up to the Lookout, then downhill back to the start of the walking trail, where our Tour Guide will meet your return to 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 dessert’s” 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 6.00 – 6.30pm.

(We do offer a Hobart Airport drop-off at the end of this tour day as we pass the airport around 6.00pm.  You need to add notes about Airport drop-off at the time of making your booking).
