After our visit to the Tasman Peninsula and Tasman National Park in Tasmania we headed north up the eastern seaboard to Swansea where we stayed overnight. The next day we spent the whole day exploring the Freycinet National Park.
Freycinet National Park is on the east coast of Tasmania, Australia. It comprises a peninsula defined by a Schouten Island and a granite mountain range known as the Hazards. Trails lead up to a lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay. White stretches of sand include the Friendly Beaches. Honeymoon and Sleepy bays form secluded coves. Views from Cape Tourville Lighthouse stretch over the Tasman Sea.
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.
Freycinet National Park is loaded with natural assets, including the pink granite peaks of the Hazards Range that dominate the Peninsula and the iconic Wineglass Bay. The short trek to Wineglass Bay lookout is a bit of a scramble, but it’s well worth it for one of Tasmania’s most photographed views.
There are many more short walks across the park that are suitable for all abilities and that lead to secluded bays, clean beaches and bird-filled lagoons.

On the way back down the trail I had a small accident. Due to the zip on my camera bag not being secure it had opened up and my 70-200mm lens fell out directly onto a rock. The protective lens filter and lens cap were damaged but luckily the lens itself was undamaged and was still working perfectly.
We headed over to a small bay called Sleepy Bay where we had a lovely picnic lunch overlooking the stunning small bay. It was so relaxing to sit in the sun and listen to the calming sounds of the sea.
Cape Tourville Lighthouse
After our pleasant lunch and walk at Sleepy Bay we drove further a
The Cape Tourville Lighthouse is an unmanned, automatic lighthouse built in 1971 by private contractors. The road was constructed through virgin eucalyptus forest, along with the powerline, with minimal disruption to the National Park.
