      Itinerary

      Wineglass Bay Tour

      We depart Hobart heading east then following the coastline north, with amazing views of Maria Island and the coastal scenery along the way. We travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as we make our way to Freycinet National Park.

      As we enter the Freycinet peninsula, we have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters, mussels or crayfish fresh from the surrounding waters.

      We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, this is a moderate uphill walk of around 45 minutes. Once at the top you are rewarded with that world-famous view of Wineglass Bay and the stunning Freycinet National Park. Enjoy the moment, take in the views and let our guides help you with those sought-after photographs. The walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout is one of the Great Short Walks of Tasmania and requires good mobility and adequate fitness. It is 1.3 km uphill, before returning downhill. Sturdy footwear/runners are best suited for this walk.

      From the Lookout you have the option to return to the start of the walk with our tour guide, or for the keen hikers you can choose to spend the rest of your time completing the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach.

      Wineglass Bay Beach Walk – This is a 2.5 hr return walk and adequate fitness is required. Our tour has ample time for you to do the full walk to Wineglass Bay Beach and return. Once on the beach you can enjoy your lunch in this stunning setting, jump in the pristine (albeit chilly!) waters for a swim, or wander along the white sands. This is one of the most rewarding walks in Tasmania to a stunning location.

      If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then we return from the Wineglass Bay Lookout with our Tour Guide and explore other areas of Freycinet National Park. Visit Honeymoon Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse & Great Short Walk, Sleepy Bay lookout.

      After around 4 hours at Freycinet National Park we re-group ready to begin the trip back to Hobart.

      We make a final stop for the day, as a trip to the East Coast is not complete without a visit to Kate’s Berry Farm. Reward your hiking efforts with one of Kate’s delicious Berry Ice-creams, desserts or other sweet treats such as jams, sauces, chocolates and jellies. This is a great way to finish the day before we settle in for the drive home.

      We return to your Hobart central city accommodation around 6.00-6.30pm.
