One of my favourite destinations in the world I can’t say enough about the beauty of Freycinet and the peninsular is sits on. Some of Tassie’s world class sights are part of the Freycinet view, Wineglass Bay, Coles Bay, Mount Freycinet and the Bryans Beaches being the most obvious. The beaches and bays are clean, white and private feeling, the bush is Tassie’s best, tall, quiet towering in places and scrubby, rough and full of wildlife in others.

The mountains are piled up granite slabs. The only way to see all of the park is on foot, you can take as long as you have over it , from the kind of short day trips you only need a guide book for to planned packaged walks (?) or just DIY it with a map from the Park office a tent and a list of available cabins.

To bear in mind: There isn’t water everywhere, you need to plan your trail to coincide with water at the right time, you probably also want to boil it. You’re not allowed to make campfires so bring a fuel stove if you want to cook.

Walk anti-clockwise along the trails to help prevent the spread of root rot, cleaning your gear from campsite to campsite will also help. And the obvious standards, carry out all you bring in and be prepared (the weather here warrants special attention.)
