An action packed day taking in Wineglass Bay & Freycinet National Park, enjoying the walks and highlights of Tasmania's beautiful East Coast.
Description: We depart Launceston today travelling through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town. We make a short stop in Campbell Town where you can collect some lunch to take along for the day ahead. You will have time to discover the Convict Brick Trail that extends through the town, visit the Red Bridge, and check out the tree sculptures depicting the history of the town.
The amazing view of The Hazards mountain range greet us as we enter the Freycinet National Park. We begin by stretching our legs on the Cape Tourville Lighthouse circuit. One of Tasmania’s Great Short Walks, this easy 20 minute walk provides spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding coastline.
Then we pack our lunch and begin our walk to the Wineglass Bay Lookout. We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout; this is a moderate uphill walk of around 60 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 guide 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.
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 Wineglass Bay beach hike, and enjoy some time on the famous beach.
Wineglass Bay Beach hike – This is a 2.5 hr return walk and good 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 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 Lookout with our Tour Guide and you will have time to relax at Honeymoon Bay in the afternoon.
We re-group ready for the return journey. Our final stop on the East Coast is the stunning Devil’s Corner Winery, where you will have time to take in the magnificent view. On site you can enjoy a wine tasting, wood fired pizza, fresh seafood and ice creams all available at own expense on the day. Then it is onwards into Launceston returning around 6.00pm.
