Itinerary

Day 1Hobart, Swansea, Spiky Bridge, Coles Bay, Freycinet Peninsula, Schouten Island, Bear Hill

Leave everyday life behind and depart the Old Woolstore in Hobart at 8.30am for the scenic journey from Hobart to Coles Bay, taking in wide panoramas of the Freycinet Peninsula across Great Oyster Bay. After morning tea near historic Spiky Bridge, board the Naturaliste in Coles Bay for a spectacular sea cruise down the western length of the Peninsula to Schouten Island, the southernmost part of Freycinet National Park (weather permitting).
On the way, keep a lookout for pods of playful dolphins and large Australasian gannets diving for food.
After a picnic lunch and swim choose between a short but steep climb up Bear Hill for expansive views of the Freycinet Peninsula, or fish for flathead in Schouten Passage with our coxswain, Shep. Return to Coles Bay by boat, then transfer to Friendly Beaches Lodge for a evening meal of fresh fish (perhaps caught by you that day!) and fine wine.

Day 2Coles Bay, Freycinet Peninsula, Bryan’s Beach, Wineglass Bay, Mt Graham, Quartzite Ridge

Rise with the sun for another boat adventure down the Freycinet Peninsula. Today there are two walks to choose from.
The walk from Bryan’s Beach journeys through sclerophyll forests and along beaches to the renowned Wineglass Bay. Along the way, encounter unforgettable ‘up-close’ moments with local birdlife.
For those seeking a serious challenge, opt for the climb from Cook’s Beach to the top of Mt Graham (579m above sea level) where you’ll enjoy wonderful views of The Hazards’ dusky pink rock outcrops, before descending to Wineglass Bay via spectacular Quartzite Ridge.
The two groups rejoin at Wineglass Bay in late afternoon – the perfect time to swim in its crystalline waters, enjoy a cup of tea and exchange stories about the morning’s adventures. Feeling refreshed, take the climb to Wineglass Bay Lookout for sublime views, then descend to the waiting vehicle. Back at the Lodge, enjoy soothing hot showers before drinks and dinner.

Day 3Bluestone Bay, White Water Wall, Oyster Bay Tribe, Friendly Beaches

Enjoy a hearty breakfast before transferring to secluded Bluestone Bay for the start of the walk. Explore the fascinating geology of White Water Wall and little Bluestone Bay before climbing to the cliff tops. Journey back to the Lodge on foot, following an ancient track through sacred bushland once followed by the Oyster Bay Tribe and now used exclusively by Friendly Beaches Lodge guests.
The headland is home to a stunning array of native plants, including the giant Xanthorrhoea (Grass Trees). Continue along the white sands of Friendly Beaches, perhaps celebrating with a dip in the sparkling ocean waters.
Then arrive back at the Lodge where cool drinks and homemade afternoon tea await. End the day savouring a well-deserved meal, then relax with a glass of wine by the roaring fire.

Day 4Mt Mary, Saltwater Lagoon, Isaac’s Point

Rise early and head to the beach for morning coffee, or sleep in and pretend you never have to leave. After breakfast, there’s an optional walk along the fossil-rich ridgeline of Mt Mary and a descent to Saltwater Lagoon, where you’ll experience the curious honks and calls of countless wild black swans and pelicans in their natural nesting ground.
After a delightful brunch, a convivial affair where experiences of the last four days are recalled and delicious food shared, take a final stroll along Friendly Beaches to Isaac’s Point, the meeting place for a bus trip back to Hobart.

  • The food was sensational, took copies of all the recipes! They looked after us so well. I’m coeliac and they even made me scones. I haven’t had scones in over 14 years! So Appreciative!

  • The Freycinet Experience was definitely the highlight of our seven weeks in Oz. We had an amazing time, and it is thanks to the staff that made it so special. Their attention to detail, the scenery, the care you took with everyone and of course the great food and wine made the trip so special.
