Or visit Freycinet National Park for the renowned Wineglass Bay Walk. Taking approximately 2.5 hours walk through coastal woodland and past striking granite boulders to the lookout offering stunning views of Wineglass Bay with its crystal clear waters and curvaceous white beach — one of Tasmania's most celebrated views!
