    Freycinet National Park
    Stop: 11 hours - Admission included
    We depart Hobart heading east then following the coastline north. We travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as we make our way 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. We 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 our 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 km uphill, before returning downhill. From the Lookout you have the option to return to the start of the walk with our tour guide, or for the keen walkers you can choose to spend the rest of your time completing the walk down to Wineglass beach. Wineglass Bay Beach Walk – This is a 2.5 hr return walk and adequate fitness is required. Our tour has 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 to a stunning location. If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then we return from the Lookout with our Tour Guide and explore other areas of Freycinet National Park. Visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse & Great Short Walk. After a very full 4 – 5 hours at Freycinet National Park we begin the trip back to Hobart. We have a short stop to see the local highlight, convict built Spikey Bridge and no trip to the East Coast is complete without a stop at the delicious Kate’s Berry Farm. Kate is serving up Berry Ice-creams, desserts and other sweet delights such as jams, sauces, chocolates and jellies, a delectable way to finish the day! We return to your Hobart City accommodation around 6.30 – 7.00pm. (Airport Drop Offs around 6.00 – 6.30pm – available only with arrangement at time of booking)

It is fantastic to hear that you were able to visit all of the highlights on our Wineglass Bay & Freycinet Active Day Tour - Wineglass Bay Lookout, Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay & the Cape Tourville Lighthouse walk. Along the way you have also had time to visit Freycinet Marine Farm and Kate's Berry Farm. It is around a 2.5 hour drive from Hobart to the Freycinet National Park travelling along the Great Eastern Drive of Tasmania.  We love Freycinet and we love Wineglass Bay including all of the hikes in the area.  We do find that it is well worth the drive time to visit one of Tasmania's Iconic natural attractions that has also been voted as one of the World's Top 10 beaches! We offer a range of different stops along the way, refreshments stops, great views and lookouts, local produce - this all helps to break up the drive and allows us to explore a little more of the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania along the way.

I, once again, had Andrew for my tour guide. There was only one other person on the tour with me, so we got to do a few extra excursions. With that being said, Andrew was super open to do whatever we wanted, and let us stay at the site for as long as we wanted. The drive to the

Our guide Nick was great. The weather outlook wasn’t the best so he shuffled the tour stops so we actually got to see everything before the rain set in. The views in Frecinet and at Wineglass Bay are beautiful. Nick explained all of the local plants and wildlife while we hiked.
