The best of both worlds!

Access Wineglass Bay by boat and then explore Freycinet National Park on foot; This entertaining and informative tour from Hobart to Wineglass Bay offers maximum beach time (2+ hrs) and saves you hiking up hills.

Our Wineglass Bay tour departs from Hobart, heading east then following the Great Eastern Drive north. We’ll travel through the seaside towns of Orford, Triabunna and Swansea as we make our way along the East Coast of Tasmania towards the Freycinet National Park. We’ll stop briefly along the way to take in some of the local highlights such as Raspins Beach (Orford), and The Bark Mill (Swansea).
When we arrive at Coles Bay, you will board the Freycinet Adventures Aqua Taxi and enjoy an awe-inspiring cruise from Coles Bay to Hazards Beach. On the way, you’ll be amazed by the spectacular red granite shoreline and the incredible wildlife that call it their home. A large variety of sea birds reside in the area including White bellied sea eagles, the icon of Freycinet National Park. Be sure to have your cameras ready as you are also likely to share the sea with Australian Fur Seals, inquisitive local dolphins and maybe even a whale or two!
The skipper of the Aqua Taxi will assist you to disembark directly onto the pristine white sands of Hazards Beach, which might require you to get your feet wet, but once you see the the crystal clear blue waters of the beach, you won’t have any hesitation in wanting to get your feet into it! You’ll then be free for the next 2.5hrs to explore Hazards Beach, Wineglass Bay (30 min walk) and Freycinet National Park. At 2:30pm you will meet the Aqua Taxi on Hazards Beach and enjoy another incredible bvoat ride back to Coles Bay.
You will have approximately 30mins to explore the town of Coles Bay, grab yourself a snack or refreshment from the amazing local cafes and stores. We recommend the Tasmanian made ice-creams from the Coles Bay Ice-Creamery! Your tour guide will meet you in Coles Bay again to make our way back to Hobart. The drive home is usually spent sharing our experiences and tales with each other and celebrating our amazing day out. We’ll get you back at your accommodation around 6:30-7:00pm.

  • 5 star ratingA great tour, quite a long journey from Hobart before it becomes really nice but Geno was a good guide. Then the walk to the lookout was fine and there was a great view from there. The weather was not the best but it was still a fantastic day.

    5 star ratingGino's experience as a guide, and his contemporary and history knowledge of the East Coast, Greater Hobart and Western Wilderness adds depth and context to the magnificent and extraordinary beauty of tasmania's land and sea-scapes. This tour brought joy and many awesome WOW factor experiences to our holiday.

  • Phil is a great guide. Very knowledgeable and the weather was perfect. A short, steep walk to the best view, bit worth the effort.


    Highly recommend! Phil was a fantastic guide and made the journey from Hobart to Wineglass fun and entertaining! Great as we were in a small group and avoided the crowds as much as possible. Wineglass Bay and Coles Bay are both so beautiful - thank you for a great day trip!
