Wineglass Bay & Freycinet Day Tour (Hobart)
- Duration : 12 Hours (approx.)
- Product code : WB
This is a HUGE day out visiting Tasmania’s East Coast along the Great Eastern Drive. With its stunning setting it is no surprise that Wineglass Bay has been voted many times among the top 10 beaches of the world.
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, an easy but uphill walk of around 45 - 60 minutes. Here the views make the walk well worth the effort! For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hr return walking time). Once on the beach you have time 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.
After a very full 4 – 5 hours at Freycinet National Park we begin the trip back to Hobart.
Last but certainly not least we stop at KATE’S BERRY FARM where Kate is serving up absolutely delicious Berry Ice-creams and other sweet delights such as jams, sauces, chocolates and jellies.
We return to your Hobart CBD accommodation around 6.30pm.
