Freycinet National Park

When you first arrive at Great Oyster Bay set against the backdrop of Freycinet National Park and the three pink-granite peaks of the Hazards mountain range – you know you're somewhere different (and special). Located on Tasmania's beautiful east coast, the Freycinet National Park occupies most of the Freycinet Peninsula. The 10,000 ha park is loaded with natural assets, including the granite peaks of the Hazards that dominate the Peninsula and the iconic and much-photographed Wineglass Bay. It is also a wildlife haven to Tasmanian pademelons, white-breasted sea eagles, and red-necked wallabies. There are long and short walks across the park to secluded bays, clean beaches and bird-filled lagoons.

Do & See

Detached from mainland Australia, the island of Tasmania offers a very different experience from your typical Australian holiday. There are luxurious guided walks into the wilderness, wild ocean cruises where you’ll enter sea caves and gaze at the tallest cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, ocean kayaking, sailing, mountain climbing, bushwalking and wine tasting. The locals love to share stories of the island too. Expect ghost tours by candlelight, Aboriginal storytelling by campfires, and history that unravels as you explore mining towns and fishing villages of the island.
