Freycinet Peninsula Circuit

Wineglass Bay might be Tasmania’s most famous beach, but in true Tasmanian style, you can only get there on foot. It is a 1.3‑kilometre hike along the Freycinet Peninsula Circuit to the lookout (1 hour return) and further to the beach (2 and a half hours return). The entire Freycinet Peninsula Circuit is 30 kilometres and takes two to three days to complete. Heading along the western perimeter, hikers will approach hills known as the Hazards, and nearby Hazards Beach. Cooks Beach and Bryans Beach are further south, before the track retraces some of its steps and heads inland over a granite-encrusted range. Once you reach the summit of 579‑metre Mount Graham, it’s smooth sailing down to one of the circuit’s campsites at Wineglass Beach.
