Freycinet | Tasmania

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.

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.

  4. You got a much clearer day than I did when I was there, I did the walk up to the lookout and about half way up the sun came out and the temp went right up and was very humid too. I had to stop and rest a few times with the heavy backpack on and decided not to do the walk down to the bay as I hadn’t bought enough water with me for the heat. Doing it by sea sounds MUCH more sensible!

  6. We were there for only part of a day a couple of years ago and I agree, it’s incredibly beautiful. We’ll definitely visit again and spend more time there.
