Reserved in 1916, Freycinet National Park features pink granite mountains, white sandy beaches, wildflowers, birds and native animals. It’s stunningly beautiful.
Walks range from 5 minutes to several days. If you’re short of time we suggest the easy 20 minute Cape Tourville Circuit, designed to be wheelchair friendly. It offers views up and down the coast including into Wineglass Bay from the outside. Of course there are many more walks of various durations, often taking in beaches that are never busy, even in summer. Ask and we’ll suggest a perfect walk for you.
Walking to the Wineglass Bay lookout for that classic view (and back) will take between an hour and 2 hours, depending on your level of fitness. If you have more time our recommendation is the Wineglass Bay/Hazards Beach Circuit taking 4 – 5 hours return.

That’s also where you can buy a Parks Pass if you haven’t already done so on line. Note that till 30 June 2019 park entry is free to holders of Seniors Cards (any state).

Note that Freycinet is Tasmania’s most popular National Park. At peak times the walks car park fills and no more cars are allowed in. Arrive before 10.00 am or choose to walk after 4.00 pm and you’ll be fine.
