Freycinet National Park. East Coast Tasmania
Freycinet National Park is world renowned for its stunning coastal scenery, spectacular pink granite boulders, challenging rock climbs, abundant wildlife, and a range of walking tracks and water activities.
The park is covered in wildflowers, including 60 varieties of ground orchid. Visitors can walk to a scenic lookout that takes in the whole bay. There are many safe swimming beaches, and waterskiing, scuba diving, canoeing and sailing facilities.
Freycinet National Park, along with Mt Field, was Tasmania's first national park, formally reserved 90 years ago. This long, narrow paradise features forests, cliffs, beaches and walking tracks. This beautiful Peninsula Walking Track ends at Wineglass Bay, regarded by many as one of the world’s best beaches. Coles Bay, which now has an up market resort is a peaceful base from which to explore the area. Entry fees are applicable to Freycinet National Park. Fees range from $10.00 per vehicle a day.
