Wineglass Bay Lookout, Freycinet Reviews
Amazing easy walk up to the lookout. We did it with the kids aged 6 & 5 yrs-old and while it was a very hot day they managed to get up to the lookout without too much complain ;) the view from there is spectacular. We would have loved to continue down to the bay and beach area but the kids wouldn't have managed the way up again. But a nice walk to see the entire bay
A good moderate walk on a well made and maintained circular track. Very doable for most levels of fitness, but ensure to carry water on warmer days. The track can also get very congested on busy days so take your time and enjoy the ever improving view on the way up. It is worth the effort for the iconic and picture perfect view. Or the more so on a clear hot day. Whilst there we had a surprise visit by the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship.
One of the great and must do lookouts in Tasmania. A well made track takes you slowly uphill for around 40 minutes, where you meet a Junction. To the left is a 5 minute walk to the lookout, or to the right is a Trek down to the Beach itself. The lookout is safe and well made and maintained, and offers some great views of the amazing countryside.
There is a 40-minute slog up pink granite stairs to reach the lookout. The view is good but you can't see the full arc of sand in Wineglass Bay. The crowds at the lookout seemed happy enough but that may have been from the sense of achievement after the ascent rather than the attractiveness of the vista. For a stop on the well trodden tourist trail this is a surprisingly tough physical experience. The path down is far gentler and would be an easier ascent but the routes up and down are one way and so visitors have no choice in the matter.
Relatively easy walk on a good track to this lookout, with great views over Wineglass Bay. Worth doing this ever if you don't continue down to the beach. The track and lookout is popular - go early (or late) in the day if you can. hikingtheworld.blog/2017/01/27/freycinet-peninsula/
