The guides were very experienced and enhanced my experience with their knowledge, exceptional care and many surprises. Hannah made the lodge felt like home. Most of the walks were easy to moderate and there was plenty of time to enjoy lunch or a swim. The walk on Mount Graham is difficult so make sure you train.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Freycinet Experience Walk is the original four-day journey along the stunning Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania's east coast. Set against the dramatic granite backdrop of the pink-hued Hazard Mountains, guests walk through rich coastal forests and discover the purest of white beaches including the world-renowned Wineglass Bay. Led by engaging knowledgeable guides, guests are taken by boat into remote and rarely explored corners of the Freycinet National Park. Guests then travel in the footsteps of the Oyster Bay tribe, traversing the same ancient bush tracks trodden some thirty thousand years ago. Here they discover diverse marine and wildlife, nesting lagoons, wildflowers and other unique flora. A variety of abilities are catered for and the walk covers between 24 and 37 kilometers. Guests can choose between challenging mountain climbs or more leisurely coastal routes before regrouping at the end of the day. Guests also travel light needing only to carry a small daypack for their lunch and camera. Welcomed each evening to the award winning Friendly Beaches Lodge; guests enjoy stunning architecture, friendly genuine service and private rooms with comfortable beds. Exclusively for the use of the walking group (Max 10 guests), the uncomplicated luxury of the lodge has remarkable powers of rejuvenation. A fine collection of artworks by prominent Tasmanian artists and a well-stocked library add to guests enjoyment. Conversation flows and friendships form quickly in this intimate atmosphere.Charming Lodge hosts create sophisticated and nourishing meals with the very best Tasmanian produce, complimented by the finest of local east coast wine. ... more   less
