Visit one of the world’s Top 10 most beautiful beaches in this not to be missed East Coast adventure. Wineglass Bay is the jewel in the crown of Freycinet National Park, explore the coastal walks, beautiful bays and windswept Lighthouse with our Tour Guides. Relax at a local winery before returning to Hobart.

We depart Hobart travelling towards the beautiful eastern coastline of Tasmania. Along the drive we pass 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.

After arriving at Freycinet National Park, we set off on a group walk to Wineglass Bay lookout. This moderate 45 minute uphill hike gets the heart pumping before revealing one of the best views in the Southern Hemisphere - gaze out over treetops to a sweeping vista of white sand and turquoise water; the perfect wine glass-shaped bay – and the ultimate selfie backdrop. 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 fitness.  It is a 1.3 km uphill walk, 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 - The total length of the Wineglass Bay lookout and beach trail return is 6 km and usually takes around 2-2.5 hours of walk time, there are around 1,000 stairs down to the beach. 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 for a lunch break and Cape Tourville Lighthouse, this is an easy 20 minute walk and another of Tasmania's Great Short Walks.

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

If all that scenery has worked up an appetite, you’ll love our afternoon stop at Devil’s Corner winery. Perched high on a hill overlooking Freycinet, it’s the ideal place to kick back with a glass of wine, fresh seafood platter, woodfired pizza, tea, coffee or artisan gelato at the end of a glorious day.

We return to Hobart around 6.00pm.
