From Hobart: 4-Day Guided Freycinet National Park Walk

5. From Hobart: 4-Day Guided Freycinet National Park Walk

Day 1 Depart from the Old Woolstores Apartments in Hobart at 8 AM and transfer to sustainably built Friendly Beaches lodge. Begin your Freycinet National Park adventure in Coles Bay by boarding the Naturaliste for a spectacular sea cruise down to Schouten Island, the southernmost part of Freycinet National Park (weather permitting). On the way, keep a lookout for pods of playful dolphins. After a picnic lunch and swim, choose between a short but steep climb up Bear Hill for expansive views of the Freycinet Peninsula, or fish for flathead in Schouten Passage.

The first option is to take a 7-hour, 14-kilometer (8.7-mile) moderate coastal walk from Bryan’s Beach journeys through sclerophyll forests and along beaches to the renowned Wineglass Bay. Along the way, encounter unforgettable up-close moments with local Australian wildlife.

This is a difficult 16-kilometer (almost 10-mile) hike that takes about 8 hours.

What people are saying about Freycinet Peninsula

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

Exceptional day considering we had rain and rough seas. The whole crew made sure we all had a fantastic experience. Although we didn't travel to Wineglass Bay due to rough seas we explored the calmer waters and thoroughly enjoyed watching the seals and a few whales when the rain abated. We could then take in the views and the entertainment by the sea creatures. We believe no one on the boat was disappointed.

A fabulous experience & a great crew. We upgraded Sky Lounge adults only and thought the experience was worth the upgrad for the duration.

Fantastic day exploring the Wine Glass Bay Area for bird life, seals, dolphins and stunning beaches and coastline.

Friendly staff, beautiful views, definitely a must see attraction for locals and visitors alike.
