On Tasmania’s east coast, Freycinet National Park is a place of wild beauty. Towering pink-hued mountains, known as the Hazards, shadow the landscape, and at their foot are the calm, blue waters of Wineglass Bay. Explore the picturesque Friendly Beaches, dine on an abundance of fresh seafood, and spend the night at one of Australia’s exclusive luxury lodges.
HOW TO GET THERE
Freycinet National Park is roughly 2 1/2 hours drive north from Hobart or two hours drive south from Launceston. If you have time to spare, wind your way here along one of Australia's most dramatic road trips, the Great Eastern Drive.
