Starts: Launceston TAS 7250, Australia
Ends: Launceston TAS 7250, Australia

Visit Wineglass Bay & Freycinet National Park with opportunities to enjoy the local seafood, ice-cream & history along the way.

We depart Launceston ready for an action-packed day out exploring Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park and the delights & highlights along the way.

Our drive this morning takes us 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.

After a brief stop in Campbell Town we travel to the East Coast, where we catch an amazing view of the area at the Great Oyster Bay Lookout and an opportunity to purchase some fresh oysters plucked from the beautiful surrounding waters.

Once inside Freycinet National Park we begin a series of walks and exploration of the area.  We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, this is a moderate uphill walk of around 45 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 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 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 walkers you can choose to spend the rest of your time completing the walk down to Wineglass beach.

Wineglass Bay Beach Walk – This is a 2.5 hr return walk and adequate 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 explore other areas of Freycinet National Park.  Visit Honeymoon Bay & Cape Tourville Lighthouse.

We re-group ready for the return journey.  While still on the East Coast we make a final stop for the day, where you can refresh and refuel at an east coast cafe and indulge in some local Tasmanian hand crafted ice-cream before continuing the return drive to Launceston, arriving back around 6.00pm.
