Full description

Depart Hobart heading east then following the coastline north. Travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as you make your way to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, and the area is famous for its stunning coastal landscapes.

Colorful granite mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife, and a variety of walking trails to explore the area. As you enter the Freycinet peninsula, make a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters, mussels, or crayfish, fresh from the surrounding waters. Walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout; this is a moderate uphill walk of around 45 minutes. Once at the top you are rewarded with that world-famous view of Wineglass Bay and the stunning Freycinet National Park.

Enjoy the moment, take in the views, and let your guides help you with those sought-after photographs. The walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout is one of the Great Short Walks of Tasmania and requires good mobility and adequate fitness. It is 1.3 kilometers uphill, before returning downhill. From the Lookout you have the option to return to the start of the walk with your tour guide, or keen hikers can choose to spend the rest of their time completing the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach. The Wineglass Bay Beach Walk is a 2.5-hour return walk and good fitness is required.

The tour allows ample time for you to do the full walk to Wineglass Bay Beach and return. Once on the beach you can enjoy your lunch in this stunning setting, jump in the pristine waters for a swim, or wander along the white sands. This is one of the most rewarding walks in Tasmania. If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, return from the Lookout with your guide to explore other areas of Freycinet National Park. Visit Honeymoon Bay or Cape Tourville Lighthouse, take the Great Short Walk, and/or visit Sleepy Bay lookout. After around 4 hours at Freycinet National Park, re-group and get ready to begin the trip back to Hobart. Make the final stop for the day, a visit to Kate’s Berry Farm. Reward your hiking efforts with one of Kate's delicious berry ice creams or other sweet treats. Return to your Hobart accommodation in the evening.

Beth, our informative and very personable guide, chauffered us to some stunning pieces of coastline along the east coast. Her detailed knowledge of the history, geology, flora and fauna of the area and her willingness to answer any questions was 10/10. All this soul food from nature combined with such delectable treats from an oyster farm and handmade icecreamery, made this tour a delight.

Informative and a feast for the senses!

Right from the right on time pick up to the wide variety of stops, long and shorter our ever cheerful and very well informed guide, Clint, kept the mood upbeat while catering for the varying interests and international origins of our group. Learned lots about lots on this tour and the climb to the Wineglass Bay lookout was worth every step! This is certainly a most beautiful State and its natural beauty is worth the fight to save it!

Great day trip to one of Tasmania's famous landmark

It was a fantastic day out. Dave our guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job taking us all up to the National Park. The walk up to the lookout for wineglass bay is good and worth the trip up. All stops provided is with great views. Good value for money and perfect for a first impression of the area and park. Also the small size of the group was suitable and we all got along very well which made the trip even better.
