When you first set eyes on Great Oyster Bay set against the backdrop of Freycinet National Park and the three pink-granite peaks of the Hazards mountain range – you know you're somewhere different. This is a visual experience to remember.
Situated on Tasmania's beautiful East Coast, Freycinet National Park occupies most of the Freycinet Peninsula. This long strip of land 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 granite peaks of the Hazards that dominate the Peninsula, abundant birdlife and the iconic and much-photographed Wineglass Bay.
There are long and short walks across the park to secluded bays, clean beaches and bird-filled lagoons that walkers of all abilities will enjoy.
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. The walk has 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.
