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.

    What a great tour! Our guide Jack was a pleasure and really knowledgeable and friendly. The tour is excellent value for money, we saw a range of stunning locations in Tassie and Wineglass bay was even more beautiful than the photos I'd seen! I enjoyed the commentary on our journey down to wineglass bay and the cute stop to see the Pademelons. The food at the Freycinet marine farm is really good too - definitely get the mussels if you enjoy seafood! All in all a great day, definitely do this tour if you're in Hobart you will love it! 🙂

  • 5 star ratingDespite having our own rental car, my mother and I chose to see Wineglass Bay and its hidden coves via this tour so we could sit back, relax and take in the sights rather than concentrate on driving and not getting lost.

    Our guide was Phil, who was knowledgeable, friendly, pretty funny and catered for everyone's needs in the group (with frequent toilet stops which was good!). There were plenty of opportunities to stop and get food and drinks and stretch the legs.

    Make sure you bring a drink bottle, walking shoes, and warm AND cold weather clothes as the weather in Tassy is changeable!

    I liked that the walks had an easy mode and hard mode so walkers could choose which they would prefer to do (we chose easy mode) so again it catered to everyone.

    I highly recommend this tour.

    5 star ratingWe booked this tour almost on a whim, and it turned out amazing. We were offered a very early morning pickup (which we did not expect, given we were staying a bit out of the way from central Hobart), and were treated to a whole day of great anecdotes, local knowledge, and amazing hikes and views around Tasmania's nature. Our guide and driver, Phil, was amazingly friendly and knowledgeable, and made the trip that much more fun. Kudos to him and we'd happily recommend this exact tour to anyone looking for a zero-stress day trip out of Hobart. Thanks!
