Freycinet Explorer [3 Days]

The Freycinet Peninsula is renowned for its spectacular red granite peaks and beautiful sandy beaches. It is also the location of the world famous, Wineglass Bay.

Our 3day circuit of the Freycinet Peninsula is one of Tasmania’s “5 Great Bushwalks” and it should be on your Bucket List of must do walks whilst in Tasmania.

The style of this tour is camping and it is supported. Guests are only required to carry their personal items [clothing]. You will not be required to carry any group food, tents or sleeping equipment. This will be provided for you at the camps. A detailed gear list will be emailed to you at the booking stage.

As there is a hill section on the last day, a good level of fitness is required to complete the circuit.

Itinerary

Day 1: Carpark – Cooks Beach [12km, 4 hours - Easy to Medium]

This tour begins in Hobart and drives up the scenic East Coast of Tasmania to Coles Bay and the start of the walk. From the car park, we follow the Hazards Beach track through coastal heathlands and gums to the start of the Cooks Beach section of the walk. A 1 – 2 hr stroll along the beach will bring us to our campsite at Cooks Corner.

Day 2: Day Walk to Bryans Beach [6km, 2 to 4 hours – Easy to Medium]

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.

Day 3: Cooks Beach – Wineglass Bay / Car Park / Hobart [15km, 7 hours Medium to Hard]

A long but rewarding day starts with a climb to Mt Freycinet Saddle / Mt Graham for stunning views over Wineglass Bay. 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. From the car park, it is a 2 ½ hour return drive back to Hobart.
