Full description
Depart Launceston ready for an action-packed day out exploring Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park and the delights and highlights along the way.

Your drive this morning takes you through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town. 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 travel to the East Coast, where you 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 begin a series of walks and exploration of the area. Walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, a moderate uphill walk of around 45 - 60 minutes. Here the views make the walk well worth the effort!

For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach (2.5 hour return walking time). Once on the beach you have time to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands. Or, if you prefer to select the shorter walking option, you can explore other areas of Freycinet with your tour guide. Visit Honeymoon Bay and the Cape Tourville Lighthouse “Great Short Walk”.

Still on the east coast, you will make a final stop for the day, where you can refresh and refuel in a friendly and relaxed location. Try the local hand-crafted ice creams or perhaps a famous Tasmanian scallop pie! Then it's onwards into Launceston returning around 6:30 PM.

Relaxing way to see a beautiful part of the state.

From pick up to drop off, our guide Steven was considerate of the needs of his group. The trip was educational, relaxed and a wonderful opportunity to see this part of the coast without the stress of working out an itinerary on my own. History, flora and fauna were all covered and advice on how the day would unfold was provided from the beginning. The website gave an outline of what to bring so no hidden surprises and I set off feeling prepared for a great day out and about.

Our tour guide Rob is very knowledgable and considerate, enjoy the tour and the hike up to the hill, and lunch by the honeymoon bay.

Too much time on the coach during this tour. Can be prolonged by an hour to give people more time to enjoy the bay. Our guide rushed us too much and everyone on the tour felt like we were on a school environment. It should’ve been more chilled out.
