This will be a day to remember, the Tasmanian East Coast has so many surprises for you. Of course there is the world famous Wineglass Bay, and it doesn't disappoint, the great scenery of Freycinet National Park, beautiful beaches and bays and more. Come and see for yourself!
This is a HUGE day out on the stunning Tasmanian east coast. Wineglass Bay has been voted many times amongst the top beaches of the world. A perfect crescent shape, stunning colours and dazzling white sand make this one of Tasmania’s “not to be missed” locations.
Wineglass Bay is nestled in the Freycinet National Park on the East Coast of Tasmania. One of Tasmania’s first National Parks this is a coastal area rich in stunning landscapes. Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and walking trails.
We travel from Hobart heading east then following the coastline north. We travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea. Enjoy a brief stop at Spiky Bridge, a convict built bridge, picturesque Spiky Beach and then on into the National Park.
We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout where your guide will help you take those sought after photographs and offer you some walking options for the day.
For the keen walkers you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hr return walking time) enjoy a swim in the pristine waters, relax and have lunch in this amazing setting. Or, travel with our guide to discover more of the National Park and visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay and Cape Tourville lookout and short walk.
After a very full 4 – 5 hours at Freycinet National Park we begin the trip back to Hobart. We have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in sampling the local oysters, mussels or crayfish fresh from the pristine waters of Oyster Bay and surrounds.
Last but certainly not least we stop at picturesque Kate’s Berry Farm where Kate is serving up absolutely delicious Berry Ice-creams and other delights, jams, sauces, chocolates and jellies.
