Our Itinerary

Day 1: Coles Bay to Cooks Beach – 13km 5 Hours

From Hobart, it is a 2 hour 30 minute picturesque drive to the Freycinet Peninsula, on the East Coast of Tasmania. En-route we will stop at Orford, Spikey Bridge and visit the Cape Tourville Lighthouse.

Todays walk begins by skirting around the impressive pink granite peaks known as “The Hazards” to Hazards Beach, the 1st of many white sandy beaches on our circuit. After 2km of beach walking we enter a section of coastal forest, home to Yellowtail Black Cockatoos, Kookaburras and Wallabies. Soon after Cook’s Beach is reached. Mount Graeme and Mount Freycinet dominate the skyline to our east and quite commonly to the west, dolphins are playing and stingrays are gliding through the shallows. A short beach walk brings us to our camp of 2 nights beneath the shelter of the Casaurina’s.

Day 2: Cooks Beach to Bryans Beach – 6km 4 Hours

Today is a gentle walk through woodlands of Gums and Peppermints to our lunch spot at Bryans Beach. Enjoy a post lunch swim or stroll along Bryans Beach before returning to our camp at Cooks Beach.

Day 3: Cooks Beach to Coles Bay – 15km 8 Hours

Today is a long but rewarding day that starts with a climb to Mt Freycinet Saddle / Mt Graham for stunning views over Wineglass Bay, Mount Amos and the Hazards.  

During our decent from Mt Graham the grade of the track and its vegetation varies and we are offered more stunning views of the Hazards, Mt Amos and the isthmus.

The decent from Mount Graham ends on the eastern end of the world famous Wineglass Bay beach. Following a short walk along the beach and over the Hazards saddle, we emerge at the visitor carpark. From the car park, it is a 2 ½ hour return drive back to Hobart.
