Freycinet Experience Walk

The inspiring four-day journey along the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania's east coast combines exciting coastal and mountain walking during the day with comfortable accommodations each evening. The walk will take you along deserted beaches, up pink granite monoliths and through the heart of the rich native heath lands of the Freycinet National park, including the iconic Wineglass Bay. Return each evening to the award winning lodge where your hosts will serve you splendid meals and regional wines. You can enjoy a hot shower or bath before sleeping in a comfortable bed after a satisfying day of walking. A true eco-lodge, it has solar power, waterless toilets and rainwater tanks which ensure that it leaves a minimal impact on the environment of this secret place. The walk itself covers between 33 and 37 kms depending on which walking option you choose. Regardless of choice, you will travel from the southern tip to the north of the Freycinet Peninsula in a continuous journey and the best part is that because this bushwalk is lodge based, you don't have to carry a heavy back pack. No one except your fellow walkers and the four staff will be at the lodge with you - making it a special place to truly unwind.

MEETING POINT: Reception Area,The Old Woolstore Hotel,1 Macquarie Street,Hobart by 8.15am sharp. Guides and guests will be introduced before leaving at 8.30am for the scenic journey from Hobart to Coles Bay, taking in panoramas of the Freycinet Peninsula across Great Oyster Bay. A morning tea break is taken near the historic Spiky Bridge close to Swansea. On arrival at Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula, we board the Naturaliste for a spectacular sea cruise down the western length of the peninsula to Schouten Island, the southernmost part of Freycinet National Park (weather permitting). After a picnic lunch, there’s a walk up Bear Hill for magnificent views, or fishing for dinner in Schouten Passage with our Coxswain Shep. The boat returns to Coles Bay and guests are transported to Friendly Beaches Lodge to relax and enjoy a dinner of fresh fish, good company and fine wine. Walking time: 2hrs Distance: 6km
Day 2
Walkers rise with the sun and are transferred from Friendly Beaches Lodge to Coles Bay for another boat trip down the peninsula. There’s a choice of walks today: a peaceful walk from Bryan’s Beach through sclerophyll forests and along beaches to the renowned Wineglass Bay or the more challenging walk from Cook’s Beach to the top of Mt Graham (579m above sea level) descending to Wineglass Bay via spectacular Quartzite Ridge. When we arrive at Wineglass Bay late in the afternoon, it’s the perfect time for a swim in the bay’s crystalline waters. Refreshed, we make the steep climb to the Wineglass Bay Lookout for spectacular views, then descend to the waiting vehicle. Back at the lodge, we enjoy refreshing hot showers before drinks and dinner. Coastal Track Walking time: 5hrs Distance 12km Mt Graham Walking time: 8hrs Distance 16km

Transfer by 4WD vehicle this morning brings walkers to secluded Bluestone Bay. Here there’s time to explore the fascinating geology of White Water Wall before climbing to the Bluestone Bay cliff tops. We walk back to the lodge through pristine bushland following a track used by the Oyster Bay Tribe. Along the way we spot giant Xanthorrea (Grass Trees) and the exceptionally rare flowering Epacris barbata. After a peaceful walk we arrive at the orange lichen-splashed rocks at the beautiful south Friendly Beaches headland. We continue along the dazzling white sands of Friendly Beaches to arrive at the lodge where cool drinks and homemade afternoon tea await. Savour a well-deserved meal and then relax with a glass of wine by the roaring fire. Walking time: 6 hrs Distance: 12km
Day 4
Rise early and head down to the beach or sleep in. After breakfast there’s a walk along the fossil-rich ridgeline of Mt Mary and a descent to Saltwater Lagoon - nesting ground of black swans and pelicans.
