Relax at the stunning Freycinet Peninsula

Shared by |tags, , , ,

If you're looking for a picturesque tropical escape in Tasmania, look no further than the stunning Wineglass Bay, located on the Freycinet Peninsula.

A piece of pristine coastline on Tasmania's east coast, Wineglass Bay's dazzling white sand and deep, sapphire ocean are enough to make even the most stubborn of worries disappear.

It's the perfect location for surfing, sailing, snorkelling, fishing, taking a nice cool dip, or simply soaking up some rays of the bright Australian sunshine.

The Bay is just a short walk from the camping ground at Coles Bay and involves an uphill climb to a rocky outlook, followed by a gentle descent down to the coast.

If you're interested in seeing the entire peninsula, the award winning Freycinet Experience Walk is a four-day guided tour that includes stops at a number of the bays throughout.

The area was home to the Oyster Bay tribe of Aboriginals for at least 20,000 years and some of the tracks on the walk are original trails made by the inhabitants all that time ago.

The trails cover about 30 kilometres and are the perfect way to experience the full richness of the Freycinet Peninsula and Wineglass Bay!

A Tasmanian National Parks pass is needed to explore the Freycinet National Park, its walks and its scenery.
