Freycinet National Park

Freycinet National Park is the best known of Tasmania’s East Coast National Parks.

Renowned for its pristine white sand, sparkling clear waters, and the iconic granite mountain range known as The Hazards, Freycinet is a must-visit destination for bushwalkers, beach lovers, and adventurers alike.

Enjoy a quiet picnic at the foot of the Hazards in beautiful Honeymoon Bay, hike up to capture a photo of the world-famous Wineglass Bay, or take a short, accessible trail that ends with panoramic coastal views at Cape Tourville Lighthouse. If you’re not a keen walker, you can explore Freycinet on water, with a range of kayak tours and cruises available; on an off-road experience; or even from the air.

There’s an interpretation centre at Coles Bay run by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife where you can pick up a Parks Pass, chat with the park rangers, and seek guidance on the walks that are the best fit for your interests, experience and ability.
