Travel to Freycinet National Park
Sticking out into the sea on Tasmania’s mild east coast is the rugged and beautiful Freycinet Peninsula. Freycinet National Park consists of knuckles of granite mountains all but surrounded by azure bays and white sand beaches. Freycinet is effectively two eroded blocks of granite - the Hazards and the Mt Graham/Mt Freycinet sections of the peninsula - joined by a sand isthmus.
The area is a great place to go bird watching and if you are lucky enough, you may see a white-bellied sea-eagle gliding overhead or large Australasian gannet diving for food in the ocean.
Freycinet National Park offers a wide variety of activities. Take a walk to the pass overlooking the perfectly shaped Wineglass Bay, trek the entire length of the Freycinet Peninsula on an three day walk or try less strenuous activities like beach strolls, swimming or wildlife spotting.
The town of Coles Bay is the main staging post, and there are many bushwalks in the area. The Moulting Lagoon Game Reserve—an important breeding ground for black swans and wild ducks—is signposted along the highway into Coles Bay from Bicheno. Some 10,000 black swans inhabit the lake. Four miles outside town, and inside the national park, is the Cape Tourville Lighthouse, which allows extensive views along the coast and across several of the small islands in the Tasman Sea. Spectacular Wineglass Bay was named one of the world’s top 10 beaches by Outside magazine.
