The Freycinet Peninsula in Tasmania is home to one of the finest unspoiled beaches in the world, according to one travel writer.
John Borthwick of The West Australian asserts that many travellers spend their entire lives looking for “the perfect deserted beach” – and Hazards Beach comes pretty close.
The beach, he writes, is best accessed via the Wineglass Bay trail – an 11km loop that takes roughly five hours to complete. While the trek through The Hazards – imposing granite structures thought to date back roughly 375 million years – is a challenge, the rest of the walk is relatively easy.
“You’ll spot far more black currawongs, Bennett’s wallabies, rosellas and sea eagles than people,” he added.
During your time in the Freycinet Peninsula, you may also wish to experience some of the other brilliant bushwalks on offer.
One brilliant two-day trip – which does pass by Hazards Beach – is the trek along the 30 km Freycinet Peninsula Circuit.
This track also continues on to Cooks and Bryans Beaches and you’ll want to have your camera at the ready as you make your way to scenic Wineglass Bay. You might want to allow yourself even longer to complete this trek – particularly if you are keen to relax and unwind on the beaches.
