Wineglass Bay makes Lonely Planet’s best Aussie beaches list
To the surprise to absolutely nobody Wineglass Bay in Tassie’s Freycinet National Park has made it onto Lonely Planet’s 2024 list of Australia’s best beaches.
Coming in the top five Australian beach suggestions within the book, travel gurus say the mix of “pink granite mountains, azure bays and rugged coastal forest, the Freycinet Peninsula is a slice of heaven dangling off Tasmania’s northeast coast”.
So you if fancy exploring – and maybe having a fresh dip! – Wineglass Bay our 4-day Freycinet & Wineglass Bay pack-free guided walk will get you there and offer so, so much more!
On this fantastic 4-day walk, you will spend your evenings at the beautiful Freycinet Lodge, the only hotel situated within Freycinet National Park.
This award-winning eco-lodge has spectacular views over Great Oyster Bay with the impressive Hazards mountain range as a backdrop.
After a day’s walk, relax in the lounge area and enjoy drinks at the bar (own expense), before dining in the stunning Bay Restaurant with local wines included with dinner.
Our guests will stay in one bedroom Cabins surrounded by native bushland (twin share). Each cabin features a king size bed and queen sofa bed, ensuite and private balcony with views of the park’s natural landscape. Note: limited one bedroom cabins are available at Freycinet Lodge with guaranteed twin king single beds.
On day 2 we include a cruise to remote Cooks Beach. Here we disembark and begin the day’s walk up and over the saddle of Mt Graham for spectacular views over Wineglass Bay and the entire Freycinet National Park.
To reach this part of the peninsula, normally you would have to walk in and overnight in the park, having carried tents and all your equipment. On our tour, with the help of a private boat, we do it all pack free!
