The Beauty of Freycinet National Park:
Freycinet National Park is house to dramatic pink granite peaks, secluded bays, white sandy beaches, and abundant birdlife. Located on Tasmania’s beautiful east coast, the park occupies the most maximum of the Freycinet Peninsula and views out to the Tasman Sea from the eastern side and back towards the Tasmanian coastline from the west.
Freycinet National Park is placed with natural assets, including the pink granite peaks of the Hazards Range that dominate the Peninsula and the iconic Wineglass Bay. The short trek to Wineglass Bay lookout is a bit of the scramble, but it’s well worth it for one of Tasmania’s most photographed looks.
There are various more short walks across the park that are fit for all abilities and that leads to secluded bays, clean beaches, and bird-filled lagoons.
For an amazing half-day trek, continue on from the Wineglass Bay view down to the beautiful, perfectly rounded beach and back to the park entrance via the Hazards Range for amazing views of Great Oyster Bay and the coastline surrounding the sleepy seaside community of Swansea. The Hazards look their best at sunup and sunset when the pink granite glows bright and brilliant.
For a longer trek, take on the whole length to the Freycinet Peninsula on a least two-day walk, taking in more remote areas like Cooks Beach and Bryans Beach. Be prepared with water and stores and take your time for an even longer stay in this beautiful part of Tasmania.
The beautiful strands and natural waters that surround the park can be enjoyed with bathing, kayaking or just lazing on the perfect white powder, while diving and snorkeling are repaid with underwater views of abundant marine life.
And if you want to see more of the park but your time is limited, or you just want to travel in style, then why not take a cruise and experience the park’s stunning scenery and abundant wildlife up close.
The Moulting Lagoon is a RAMSAR wetland sanctuary for black swans, waterfowl, and other migratory birds. If you’re lucky, you might spot a white-bellied sea-eagle gliding overhead.
There are a visitor center, shop and outdoor theatre at the park entrance with electric barbecues, picnic tables, water and toilets located in the park.
