Freycinet National Park is home to dramatic pink granite peaks, secluded bays, white sandy beaches and abundant birdlife.
Situated on Tasmania's beautiful east coast, the park occupies most of the Freycinet Peninsula and looks out to the Tasman Sea from the eastern side and back towards the Tasmanian coastline from the west. This route is inspired by an existing, well-known trail run hosted on the Freycinet Peninsula each year.
However, our route begins at the majestic Honeymoon Bay and departs on the new shared-use track to the Wineglass Bay Carpark.
From here you will pick up the Freycinet National Park's iconic trails, first following the rolling coastal trail to Hazard's Beach, all the while enjoying views back to 'mainland Tasmania'.
After a shell-fossicking jaunt along the beach you will pick up the trail to Cook's Beach with its blue, blue waters that is idyllic for a swim! Now the big effort begins with a long, at times very steep climb to the Mt Freycinet/Mt Graham saddle, then to the top of Mt Graham itself.
Then down, down, down, down to the world-famous Wineglass Bay campsite and beach for yet another refreshing dip.
The route will take you along the soft sands of Wineglass Bay then up and over the lookout track where views back to Mt Graham and the beach await you.
Afterwards, enjoy a flowing descent and many high-fives with other walkers to the Wineglass Bay carpark, before picking up the shared-use track back to Honeymoon Bay.
The route concludes at Honeymoon Bay where another swim and relaxation period on the granite outcrops will reward you for your efforts.
What a trail honeymoon!
