A new half-day guided walk through the Freycinet National Park offers a breathtaking way to experience Tasmania’s east coast. The 5.5-hour Freycinet Walking Tour is the perfect introduction to the area’s dazzling natural beauty — especially if you’re not quite ready for one of the region’s iconic overnight hikes.
Departing from Freycinet Lodge (a Tasmanian travel drawcard in itself!) the small group adventure starts with a gentle climb to the Wineglass Bay viewing platform before a descent along the eucalypt-lined track to the soft white sands of Wineglass Bay Beach. Time for morning tea before heading west along the Isthmus Track to the crystalline waters of the more secluded Hazards Beach. Discover more about the history and local wildlife of this scenic location from your experienced guides Sara and James Barnes of Experiential Tasmania, including the story behind the dramatic pink granite peaks of the Hazards Mountains.
A gourmet picnic lunch and Aqua Taxi transfer back to the Freycinet Lodge jetty completes a morning of pristine sightseeing. The walk requires a moderate level of fitness (you’re looking at 8-9 kilometres which include stairs, rocky headlands and beaches) and is priced at just $195 per person including food, drinks and a transfer back to Freycinet Lodge.
