Freycinet National Park
No visit to Tasmania is complete without trekking the world heritage listed Freycinet National Park. Sitting on Tasmania’s sunny east coast, the national park is famous for its picture-perfect Wineglass Bay. The beach is often praised as one of the most beautiful in the world, and when you catch a glimpse of it up close, you’ll soon discover why.
Wineglass Bay is a perfect curve of caster sugar-white sand cuddled by verdant rainforest-covered mountains. The gleaming azure water contrasts beautifully against the pale beach.
Many hikes offer panoramic views of the famous bay. For breathtaking views from sky-high heights, consider tackling the Mount Amos trail. From the top of Mount Amos, you’ll be treated to elevated vistas of the sparkling blue water and the delicate curve of Wineglass Bay. But be warned, the hike demands plenty of rock scrambling and uphill trekking, so it’s best suited for fit or experienced walkers.
Keep an eye out for the local wildlife, too. Freycinet National Park is abundant with caramel-coloured wallabies, fluffy-faced kookaburras, and plenty of exotic seabirds.
