Freycinet National Park, Tasmania Holidays

Freycinet National Park is on the east coast of Tasmania, Australia. It comprises a peninsula defined by a Schouten Island and a granite mountain range known as the Hazards. Trails lead up to a lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay. White stretches of sand include the Friendly Beaches. Honeymoon and Sleepy bays form secluded coves. Views from Cape Tourville Lighthouse stretch over the Tasman Sea.

Freycinet National Park Holidays

Freycinet National Park is rich in stunning landscapes. Kick back on miles of white sand at the Friendly Beaches and the secluded cove of Honeymoon Bay or try snorkelling and diving off the rocky Sleepy Bay. Follow the 90-minute walk to Wineglass Bay lookout, which offers impressive views across the bay, especially at sunrise. Or take the 11-kilometre (seven-mile) Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach Circuit, which crosses the national park along the isthmus to remote Hazards Beach on the western coastline of Freycinet. You can also join a scenic flight from the Friendly Beaches Airfield to see the majestic Freycinet coast from the air.
The Freycinet Peninsula is famous for succulent grass-fed beef and lamb, full-flavoured game meats and fresh-off-the-boat seafood, including crayfish, scallops and oysters. Take a tour of the Freycinet Marine Farm, or simply enjoy freshly shucked oysters out on the deck. Visit the cool climate wineries within an hour's drive of Freycinet. Sample pinot noir at Devils Corner Cellar Door and Spring Vale, or award-winning riesling at Gala Estate. Join a Long Lunch tour to visit four cellar doors and enjoy a gourmet lunch of Tasmanian produce. Drop in to Kate’s Berry Farm in Swansea to try time-honoured desserts such as freshly baked scones and fruit pies.
Join Wineglass Bay Cruises for a tour of the coast and a chance to spot an abundance of wildlife, including penguins, dolphins, seals and whales. Or get out on the water on a three-hour guided sea kayaking tour of the Freycinet coastline from Coles Bay. Spot southern right whales and humpback whales at Great Oyster Bay as they migrate north along the Tasmanian coast between May and July and south between September and November. Day tours and expedition tours run year-round and no prior experience is necessary.
