Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife and amazing walking trails. As we enter the Freycinet area we have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in the local oysters’ fresh from the surrounding pristine waters. We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, this is a moderate uphill walk of around 45 minutes. Once at the top you are rewarded with that world – famous view of Wineglass Bay and the stunning Freycinet National Park. Enjoy the moment, take in the views and let our guides help you with those sought-after photographs.

Good views, needs better timing

Enthusiastic tour guide who entertained us with stories for the duration of the trip. Stopped in some lovely locations, although we would have liked some more time to eat lunch and spend at various locations (and be warned earlier that we are required to buy lunch in the morning at a Sorrell cafe with limited options so we could plan better/bring our own lunch) Some elderly couples were on our tour and they could not walk to some of the locations on the tour which was disappointing, and the tour guide was required to continue at a fast pace and leave them behind.
