Sticking out into the sea on Tasmania’s mild east coast is the rugged and beautiful Freycinet Peninsula.
Freycinet National Park consists of knuckles of granite mountains all but surrounded by azure bays and white sand beaches. The dramatic peaks of the Hazards welcome you as you enter the park. Freycinet is effectively two eroded blocks of granite – the Hazards and the Mt Graham/Mt Freycinet sections of the peninsula – joined by a sand isthmus.
Freycinet is a great place to go bird watching. You may be lucky enough to see a white-bellied sea-eagle gliding overhead or large Australasian gannet diving for food in the ocean.
Freycinet National Park offers a wide variety of activities. Take a walk to the pass overlooking the perfectly shaped Wineglass Bay, trek the entire length of the Freycinet Peninsula on a three day walk or try less strenuous activities like beach strolls, swimming or wildlife spotting.
