Itinerary

Itinerary

We depart Launceston ready for an action-packed day out exploring Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park and the delights & highlights along the way.

Our drive this morning takes us through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town.  We make a short stop in Campbell Town where you can collect some lunch to take along for the day ahead.  You will have time to discover the Convict Brick Trail that extends through the town, visit the Red Bridge, and check out the tree sculptures depicting the history of the town.

After a brief stop in Campbell Town we travel to the East Coast, where we catch an amazing view of the area at the Great Oyster Bay Lookout and an opportunity to purchase some fresh oysters plucked from the beautiful surrounding waters.

Once inside Freycinet National Park we begin a series of walks and exploration of the area.  We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, a moderate uphill walk of around 45 – 60 minutes.  Here the views make the walk well worth the effort!

For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach (2.5 hr return walking time).  Once on the beach you have time to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands.

If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then you can explore other areas of Freycinet with our tour guide.  Visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse & great short walk.

We re-group ready for the return journey.  While still on the East Coast we make a final stop for the day, where you can refresh and refuel in a friendly and relaxed location.  Try the local hand-crafted ice creams or perhaps a famous Tasmanian Scallop Pie!  Then it is onwards into Launceston returning around 6.30pm.
