Wineglass Bay Beach Hike from Hobart WBHIKE
Wineglass Bay Beach Hike Hobart Return Day Trip
Freycinet National Park is a hiker’s delight! With a network of trails ranging from 10 minutes to 10 days. The premier walk here is to the Wineglass Bay Lookout and then onwards to Wineglass Bay Beach. One of Tasmania’s most celebrated walks and locations! We depart Hobart heading east to the beautiful eastern coastline of Tasmania. We pass through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as we make our way north to Freycinet National Park. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes. Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife, and amazing walking trails.
The total length of the Wineglass Bay lookout and beach trail return is 6 km and usually takes around 2.5 hours of walk time. We normally have around 3.5 – 4 hours for the activity – which gives you plenty of time for the main trail and then time to explore the beach as well. The 20-minute walk to the southern end of the beach is fantastic for those amazing views of The Hazards mountains. Or, take the time to enjoy your lunch, and relax, and on those summer days – there is time for a swim in the clear blue waters!
We have a short stop to see the local highlight, the convict-built Spikey Bridge, and an opportunity to refuel and refresh at an east coast cafe and indulge in some local Tasmanian hand crafted ice-cream before continuing the return drive to Hobart.
We return to your Hobart City accommodation around 6.00 – 6.30 pm (Airport Drop Offs around 6.00 – 6.30 pm – available only with arrangement at time of booking)
