The Hazards, Tasmania

Freycinet Holidays

The east coast of Tasmania is a haven for walkers and nature lovers with the beautiful pink granite mountains of Freycinet Peninsula, turquoise waters and the purest of white sand beaches at Freycinet National Park. The world renowned Bay of Fires and Maria Island accommodated walks are just two of the many attractions that this area has to offer.

Pack some suitable walking shoes and hike across the peaks of the Hazard Ranges to see breathtaking crescent views of Wineglass Bay. Part of the Freycinet Peninsula and considered one of the top ten beaches in the world, this pristine curve of white sand is situated near Hobart, Tasmania, where you can get up close to wildlife, take to the sea for some surfing or enjoy watching the playful dolphins from your sea kayak.

Freycinet Highlights

Great Oyster Bay can be enjoyed on a cruise where you may spot white-bellied sea eagles and Australian gannets, but you may decide the area is best enjoyed on a 4WD adventure. Head to the historic, Cape Tourville Lighthouse, for perfect dizzying views and the opportunity to tuck into delicious fresh oysters and local wine. To enjoy the magical views of the Freycinet Coast from up high, there are flights from Friendly Beach.

Explore the wild coastlines and experience so many wonderful attractions en route and during your stay in Freycinet.  June and September are when the whales follow their ancestral migration routes and you can hop on a boat to Schouten Island to watch these stunning mammals, along with leaping dolphins. Coles Bay and Great Oyster Bay are great for snorkelling and diving and you can expect to see hundreds of brightly coloured fish. You may even be lucky enough to spot the rare New Holland mouse if you keep your eyes peeled around the Friendly Beaches and you’ll be certain to see wallabies and possums on one of the numerous bushwalks available.  

Foodies will love the freshly shucked oysters at the Freycinet Marine Farm and you can even watch them being harvested from the deck of a boat. Knowledgeable locals take visitors on delicious and fascinating food and wine tours at the seven cool-climate wineries – just an hour’s drive of Frecyinet, where you sample pinot noir, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and riesling .

As well as fresh seafood like crayfish, oysters and scallops, the peninsula is known for its grass-fed lamb and beef due to its mild and sunny climate. You’ll be spoilt for choice with delicious mouth-watering meals on holidays to Freycinet.
