Looking out across a bay

Dramatic pink granite peaks, white sandy beaches including Wineglass Bay and abundant wildlife

Freycinet National Park is located on Tasmania’s east coast and occupies most of the Freycinet Peninsula. The eastern side looks out to the Tasman Sea while the western side looks back to the Tasmanian coastline across magnificent Great Oyster Bay.

The park is easily recognised by the pink granite peaks of the Hazards Range that dominate the peninsula and iconic Wineglass Bay, perhaps one of the world’s most photographed beaches. The short trek to Wineglass Bay lookout is well worth it for a breathtaking view of this iconic beach.

There's a visitor centre, shop and outdoor theatre at the park entrance with electric barbecues, picnic tables, water and toilets located in the park.

Freycinet National Park is about 2.5 hr from both Hobart and Launceston via the Tasman Highway.
