Hobart to Launceston via Wineglass Bay
- Duration: 12 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: HWBL
An action packed tour day from Hobart to Launceston via the world famous Wineglass Bay and the East Coast.
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 area we have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters fresh from the surrounding pristine waters. 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. This walk takes around 1.5 hours, is graded as an easy but uphill walk.
For the keen walkers you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hr return walking time). You have time on this famous beach to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands.
If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then you can explore other areas of Freycinet with our tour guide. Visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse & great short walk.
We re-group ready for the return journey to Launceston. Still on the East Coast we make a final stop along the way for some local ice-cream and other well-earned sweet treats! We make time for a stop here to take it all in before commencing the final drive back into Launceston.
We return to your Launceston accommodation around 6.30pm - 7.00pm.
