Full description
The tour departs from Hobart heading east then following the coastline north. You will travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as you make our way to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes.  Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and amazing walking trails.

As you enter the Freycinet area you will have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters fresh from the surrounding pristine waters. 
 
The tour will walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout where your guide will help you take those sought-after photographs and offer you some walking options for the day. This walk takes around 1.5 hours, is graded as an easy but uphill walk. For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hours return walking time). You have time on this famous beach to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands. 

If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then you can explore other areas of Freycinet with your tour guide.  Visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse and enjoy a great short walk.

The tour re-groups ready for the return journey. While still on the East Coast, 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 is onwards into Launceston arriving around 06:30 PM.
