WHAT TO EXPECT

Hobart To Launceston via Wineglass Bay



This action-packed tour travels from Hobart to finish in Launceston via the world-famous Wineglass Bay and Tasmania's stunning East Coast. The tour departs Hobart heading east then follows the coastline north. You'll travel through the seaside towns of Orford and Swansea as you make your way to Freycinet National Park. 

 

Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes. Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife, and amazing walking trails. As the tour enters the Freycinet area, you have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in tasting the local oysters fresh from the surrounding waters.  



The tour then walks 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 iconic view of Wineglass Bay and the surrounding Freycinet National Park. Enjoy the moment, take in the views, and let the tour guides help you with those sought-after pics. The walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout is one of the Great Short Walks of Tasmania and requires good mobility and adequate fitness. It is 1.3 km uphill, before returning downhill.



From the Lookout, you have the option to return to the start of the walk with the tour guide, or for the keen hikers, you can choose to spend the rest of your time completing the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach. Wineglass Bay Beach return walk is 2.5 hours and moderate fitness is required. The tour provides ample time for you to complete the walk to Wineglass Bay Beach and return. Once on the beach, you can enjoy your lunch in a stunning setting, jump in the water, or wander along the white sands. This is one of the most rewarding walks in Tasmania.



If you prefer to walk to the Lookout and return, you'll walk with the tour guide and explore other areas of Freycinet National Park. Visit Honeymoon Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Great Short Walk, and Sleepy Bay.



When the tour re-groups, you'll continue on the journey to Launceston. The tour makes a final stop for the day where you can refresh and refuel — try the local ice cream or a famous Tasmanian scallop pie!  Then it is onwards into Launceston arriving at 6.30pm.

 

Launceston to Hobart via Wineglass Bay

 

This is an action-packed tour that starts in Launceston to end in Hobart via Wineglass Bay and the East Coast. The tour departs Launceston ready for a day exploring Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park, and other highlights along the way.

 

The morning drive takes you through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town. You'll make a quick stop in Campbell Town where you can buy lunch for the day ahead. You have time to discover the Convict Brick Trail that extends through the town, visit the Red Bridge, and check out the tree sculptures depicting the history of the town.



After a brief stop in Campbell Town, the tour travels to the East Coast, where you catch an amazing view of the area at the Great Oyster Bay Lookout. The tour stops for an opportunity to buy fresh oysters plucked from the surrounding waters.

 

Once inside Freycinet National Park, the tour begins a series of walks and exploration of the area. Freycinet is one of Tasmania’s first National Parks, famous for its rich and stunning coastal landscapes. Pink Granite Mountains form the backdrop for secluded bays, pristine waters, white sandy beaches, local wildlife, and amazing walking trails. As the tour enters the Freycinet area, you have a brief stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for anyone interested in tasting the local oysters fresh from the surrounding waters.
