Know More about this tour

We depart Launceston ready for an action-packed day out exploring Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park and the delights & highlights along the way.

 

Our drive this morning takes us through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town.  We make a short stop in Campbell Town where you can collect some lunch to take along for the day ahead.  You will have time to discover the Convict Brick Trail that extends through the town, visit the Red Bridge, and check out the tree sculptures depicting the history of the town.

After a brief stop in Campbell Town we travel to the East Coast, where we catch an amazing view of the area at the Great Oyster Bay Lookout and an opportunity to purchase some fresh oysters plucked from the beautiful surrounding waters.

Once inside Freycinet National Park we begin a series of walks and exploration of the area.  We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, a moderate uphill walk of around 45 - 60 minutes.  Here the views make the walk well worth the effort! 

For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass Bay beach (2.5 hr return walking time).  Once on the beach you have time to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands.  Or, if you prefer to select the shorter walking option, you can explore other areas of Freycinet with our tour guide.  Visit Honeymoon Bay and the Cape Tourville Lighthouse & Great Short Walk.

 

We re-group ready for the return journey.  While still on the East Coast we make a final stop for the day, where you can refresh and refuel in a friendly and relaxed location.  Try the local hand-crafted Ice creams or perhaps a famous Tasmanian Scallop Pie!  Then it is onwards into Launceston returning around 6.30pm.

    Our guide Graeme was very informative and what I liked most was that he catered for the varied abilities on the walks. On the walk up to the Wineglass Bay lookout I was able to proceed ahead and then to Honeymoon Bay. His efforts to make it a great day for everyone are much appreciated. Both locations are beautiful. We also went to Devils Corner Winery which was very picturesque. Another stop at a cafe had a lovely little lake behind it, and the raspberries being sold opposite were good.

    A superbly well organised and coordinated day trip that allows each guest to tailor the amount of walking to their own fitness level and needs. Graeme is an excellent tour leader and did everything possible to ensure everyone got what they wanted from the day. A must do trip if visiting Tasmania.

    Thanks Grant for the interesting commentary along the journey. Help make our trip entertaining. Weather was 20 degrees and sunny. I experienced some motion sickness during the drive to Wineglass bay. Not being too fit, we took nearly an hour to walk up to the top when others took 30 mins. Must remember to take insect repellent next time. We would have liked more time to catch out breath but we had a time limit to get back to the van. Love the visit to Honeymoon bay... caught our breath and some wonderful views there. Topped the day with a drink at the Bistro.

    Great trip, gave us plenty of time to do all the sightseeing and more. Showed us all the best spots and hidden bays. Also due to covid, you get 100% of your money back if due to lockdowns you can't make it. We did two tours with Tours Tasmania the Wine Glass and Cradle Mt. We do highly recommend their fantastic and informative service.

    A great day out seeing some spectacular scenery. Wineglass Bay is amazing and well worth the hike to the lookout. We also stopped at Honeymoon Bay which was stunning. Loved every moment of this tour and our guide Tony was great.

    My partner and I did the wineglass bay tour with Rod as our guide, and we really enjoyed it ☺️ Rod was very chatty and friendly, told us interesting facts about the places we visited and seemed to know what he was doing. He seemed knowledgeable and like he was having just as much fun as everyone else ☺️ we stopped at Campbelltown which had interesting Australian history, a winery, and some gorgeous beaches before heading to wineglass bay. We didn't have the best weather, but Rod at the last minute decided to switch the schedule of the day around so the rain cleared up by the time we did the walk! Visiting honeymoon bay and friendly beaches was amazing. Thanks for the amazing tour Rod! From 2 Melbourians 😝☺️⭐

    The tour was well organised and our tour guide Graeme very knowledgeable and experienced. The walk to the lookout requires some uphill and downhill walk for at least 1hour. Definitely worthy and highly recommended

    We were with Steve, who was super helpful. So many things he talked about and made things so interesting. Even provided suggestions to people for other things to do in the rest of the days while in Launceston. His knowledge about the local area was great and he got everyone involved in the discussions. Really good trip and could not ask for more.
