Full description

Depart Launceston traveling through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town. Make a short stop in Campbell Town. Discover the Convict Brick Trail that extends through the town, visit the Red Bridge, and check out the tree sculptures. Enter the Freycinet National Park and admire the sight of The Hazards mountain range. Begin by stretching your legs on the Cape Tourville Lighthouse circuit. One of Tasmania’s Great Short Walks, this easy 20-minute walk provides spectacular 360-degree views of the surrounding coastline. Next, walk for about 60 minutes to the Wineglass Bay Lookout. Once at the top you are rewarded with the world-famous view of Wineglass Bay and the stunning Freycinet National Park. 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 Wineglass Bay beach hike and enjoy some time on the famous beach. The Wineglass Bay Beach hike is a 2.5-hour return walk and good fitness is required. Once on the beach, you can jump in the pristine waters for a swim, or wander along the white sands. If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, return from the Lookout with the tour guide, where you will have time to relax at Honeymoon Bay in the afternoon. The final stop on the East Coast is the stunning Devil’s Corner Winery, where you will have time to take in the magnificent view. On site, you can choose to purchase some wine tasting, wood-fired pizza, fresh seafood, or ice cream. Then, relax on the journey back to Launceston.

Interesting stops en route to wineglass bay. Hike up to the look out was good, views were worth it. Hike down to the beach was about 1000 steps taking 20-25mins also worth it. Weather was changeable so not many people out and practically had beach to self. Red algae on rocks made for interesting photo shots.

Relaxing way to see a beautiful part of the state.

From pick up to drop off, our guide Steven was considerate of the needs of his group. The trip was educational, relaxed and a wonderful opportunity to see this part of the coast without the stress of working out an itinerary on my own. History, flora and fauna were all covered and advice on how the day would unfold was provided from the beginning. The website gave an outline of what to bring so no hidden surprises and I set off feeling prepared for a great day out and about.
