Freycinet National Park

Freycinet National Park is home to dramatic pink granite peaks, secluded bays, white sandy beaches and abundant birdlife.

Situated on Tasmania's beautiful east coast, Freycinet National Park occupies most of the Freycinet Peninsula - a long strip of land that looks out to the Tasman Sea from the eastern side and back towards the Tasmanian coastline from the west.

The park is loaded with natural assets, including the pink granite peaks of the Hazards that dominate the Peninsula and the iconic and much-photographed Wineglass Bay.

There are many more short walks across the park that lead to secluded bays, clean beaches and bird-filled lagoons, and can be enjoyed by walkers of all abilities.

For an excellent half day trek, continue on from the Wineglass Bay lookout down to the beautiful, perfectly curved beach and back to the park entrance via the Hazards Range for amazing views of Great Oyster Bay and the coastline surrounding the sleepy seaside village of Swansea.

The Hazards look their best at sunrise and sunset, when the pink granite glows bright and brilliant.
