Friendly Beaches

Many visitors to Freycinet are so keen to reach Coles Bay that they rush straight down the Freycinet Peninsula and miss out on a real highlight: Friendly Beaches.

The turnoff to Friendly Beaches is on Coles Bay Road, around 9km after you leave the Tasman Highway. At the end of a 10-metre walking track, you’ll find one of the longest, quietest, most beautiful stretches of beach in Tasmania. Give your toes a good wiggle in the sand and let that fresh sea breeze carry away all your concerns – now you’re really running on Tassie time.
