Our Exclusive Walking APP

Designed by Life's An Adventure

Exclusively designed by Life’s An Adventure, the Self-Guided Walking Tours will be more than just a set of track notes on your smartphone. Our fully interactive Self-Guided Walking App includes easy-to-follow walking notes with gps tracking, photos of track junctions and points of interest en-route as well as information about the natural environment. The app will give average walking times, distances for each section and even optional side-trips as well as short and long walk options for each day.

As well as having the walking app on your phone, you get track information on the Google map platform, so each waypoint on each walk will be triggered as you arrive at that point, whether it be a fork in the track or point of interest to guide you along the way. This gives real time feedback so you know you are exactly where you think you are! On top of this, you receive a good, old-fashioned hard copy of each day’s track notes.

WALK GRADE: 11kms. 5 hours walking with breaks. Easy to Medium Grade. Moderate to Good level of fitness required.

TERRAIN: This walk has one steep climb to Wineglass Bay Lookout, and a steep descent with 1000 stairs to Wineglass Bay. The rest of the walk is relatively flat. Track conditions are excellent to Wineglass Bay. Beyond this, the track narrows, with some minor obstacles.

WALK ITINERARY: Meet your transfer company in the foyer of the Grand Chancellor Hotel Launceston at 8.00am (or self drive to Coles Bay). From here enjoy a scenic drive winding through rich farmlands to Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula. We begin our walking adventure from the Freycinet National Park main car park, then head up and over the Hazards to discover the stunning beauty of Wineglass Bay. At first glance, you’ll understand why this destination was voted one of the world’s top 10 beaches. After visiting Wineglass Bay, today’s walk crosses to Hazards Beach, which rates pretty well beside its famous Wineglass Bay cousin. You will then return along a scenic trail beneath the magnificent Hazard mountains, skirting the coastline and passing a number of picturesque coves, perfect for swimming on hot days. From the end of the track, it is a short walk to your stunning accommodation at Freycinet Lodge, where you can enjoy your first wonderful dinner in the Bay Restaurant featuring local Tasmanian produce, perfectly matched with local wines.

Day 2: Cruise Wineglass Bay and Schouten Island
Self Guided Freycinet Walk

Today embark on a captivating 4.5 hour cruise which journeys to the remote areas of the park not accessible by foot within a day. We depart from Coles Bay and cruise around the whole peninsula seeing the stunning Freycinet National Park coastline in its entirety. Explore remote Schouten Island’s hidden coves, home to little penguins and shearwaters, then head into the Tasman Sea to discover secret sea caves, blowholes, and waterfalls along the granite cliffs. Witness the rarely-seen beauty of Wineglass Bay from the water’s edge before immersing yourself in the rich history of the region, including its Aboriginal heritage and tales of early explorers and entrepreneurs. A delicious lunch is provided onboard featuring the delights of the region with a feast of succulent local oysters, complemented by luscious salmon and savory smoked meats, accompanied by an array of freshly baked bread, artisanal cheeses, crisp salads, East Coast’s renowned wines and artisan brews. You will have access to the Captains bridge and private viewing deck. This is a stunning day that shouldn’t be missed.
