Tasmania’s multi-award winning tour to Wineglass Bay


Explore Freycinet National Park on foot with a local Tasmanian guide. Interact with the wildlife, smell the native plants and rub the powder soft white sand between your fingers and toes. This is the tour for those that want to truly feel the region and complete several of Tasmania’s Greatest Short Walks.
Because this is a private tour, please note that the tour itinerary is highly customisable and can be tailored to suit your groups needs. Want to spend more time hiking and less time at food stops or sightseeing along the way? Sure!
Want to cut out a short walk or two and instead sit and make a real meal of the incredible seafood lunch? Want to stop at a vineyard or two on the way home? No problem! Just call us before you book to discuss your desires so we can plan and make the necessary arrangements.

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 and The Bark Mill (Swansea).

Lunch will be had at Coles Bay, where you can enjoy an incredible selection of the freshest Tasmanian seafood from the Freycinet Marine Farm,or choose from the wide selection of seafood, dumplings and poke bowls available at Scale Fish – the Coles Bay Take-away Shop. Granite, the stunning new Bakery/Cafe has plenty to offer too, or you can grab a coldie from the Iluka Tavern. Whatever you treat yourself with, be sure to also grab a drink bottle if you didn’t already bring one with you because after lunch we go for our walk.
The walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout is one of the Great Short Walks of Tasmania.  It usually takes about 45mins to get to the Wineglass Bay Lookout. The 1.4 km walk is uphill on a rocky but well constructed path with stone steps. As a group, we walk to the Wineglass Bay Lookout where we help each other out to ensure we get the best photographs of this iconic view of Tasmania’s jewel.  We enjoy the excitement and emotions of the moment, learn the secrets of the beaches dark history and take in the rewarding and world famous view.
From the Wineglass Bay Lookout you will be given the option to return to the start of the walk with your guide, or to spend the rest of your time completing the walk down to Wineglass Bay Beach (2hr return). There you can enjoy a well deserved break with the famous white Wineglass Bay Beach sand between your toes, take a relaxing stroll along the beach, enjoy a swim in the stunning clear ocean, explore the rocky shoreline, the choice is yours!
If you choose to travel back with your guide, you will explore more of the Freycinet National Park through a series of short scenic walks.  You’ll visit Honeymoon Bay or Sleepy Bay and Cape Tourville Lookout.

After almost 5 hours of fun and exploration in the Freycinet National Park we all reunite and jump aboard the bus 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.

  • The Wineglass Bay tour is one of the most picturesque tours that I have done in my life. The tour group was small enough for the participants to enjoy the whole experience. And, Dan was a great guide!

    positive review I could say this is the highlight on my trip. I couldn't experience it without Wineglass Bay Tours. Above all, Geno is not just a guide, he is a photographer too. Thanks man for a nice capture at the look out.
