Heading north from the magnificent Tasman Peninsula, still in awe of such a beautiful area, we came to rest in the Freycinet Peninsula.
Such places as Wineglass Bay, Cape Tourville and Honeymoon Bay are but a few of gorgeous places to visit here. I didn’t make it to Wineglass Bay, it was too long a walk but we could glimpse it from the lighthouse at Cape Tourville.
Freycinet National Park is loaded with natural assets, including the pink granite peaks of the Hazards Range that dominate the Peninsula and the iconic Wineglass Bay. The short trek to Wineglass Bay lookout is a bit of a scramble, but it’s well worth it for one of Tasmania’s most photographed views. (see discovertasmania.com.au)
From Cape Tourville (a short walk from the car park) you get a beautiful view of the area, and a walk along the pathway around the cliffs to the lighthouse is a must. You can just see part of Wineglass Bay from there, Carp Bay in the foreground, Thouin Bay and Mounts Graham and Freycinet in the background. For an easier option other than the numerous walks available to you, simply take the cruise with Wineglass Bay Cruises.
On our way there we passed Honeymoon Bay and thought we would stop in and have a look. It is a stunning area, the water colour was fantastic and it was so calm. What a hidden gem.
Definitely another great place in Tasmania on the East coast.
