What people are saying about Freycinet National Park

We loved our day walking in Freycinet with Corey. He was friendly and professional. The walk was conducted at a good pace and was fun but also challenging in parts. The views of Wineglass Bay from the top of the Hazards are a must see and the walk along a deserted Hazards Beach peaceful and something I won't ever forget. The morning tea and lunch provided were delicious. We all agreed that we wouldn't have enjoyed our day as much or understood the environment and history of the area without Corey expertly guiding us. The boat ride back to the lodge was also a highlight complete with seal viewing and a little whale hunt on the way back. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour

Alessandro is a pleasant and convivial host. The tour included a necessary stop at a great bakery in Richmond for coffee and breakfast, saw the bridge, and heard stories along the way. The hike culminated in spectacular views of Wineglass Bay and then a surprise stop at a winery for lunch. It was an enjoyable and educational day out.

Absolutely the best trip, with the best guide! Nothing is too much trouble for Alessandro as he goes out of his way to ensure you are having the best experience from start to finish. This was my second time doing this tour and this time I brought along my daughter she had the best time!

Looking for a tour that is jammed packed with as much as possible? This is it! Alex was knowledgeable and accommodating. What a great day!

We booked this trip with the hopes of seeing some beautiful sights and we did!
