Pack Free Walk

Carry only a day pack with your water, lunch and camera

For those that love hiking, but don’t like the hard slog of carrying a heavy, multi-day hiking pack, you’ll be delighted to know you only need to carry a small day pack with your lunch, camera and water. Experience spectacular views from the top of Mt Graham, looking over the entire Freycinet National Park. This view is normally only accessible by walking overnight on the 3-4 day Freycinet Peninsula Walk but on our walking tour, we take a boat cruise to remote Cooks Beach and walk to Mt Graham from here. Each day we return to our accommodation to freshen up before one of our signature quality restaurant meals with local Tasmanian wine and produce.

.. and the resultCustomer Testimonials
Danny and Scott are amazing guides. Both different but superb. I enjoyed walking and talking with both of them. I would definitely walk with them again. The restaurant was great. Freycinet Lodge is such a lovely place to stay, although I wasn't quite aware of how fancy it was. The guides really made the tour for me. The decision was summit Amos was the icing on the cake that made it go from great to amazing!
