All4Adventure

Get on board a 4 wheel motorbike or one of our Polaris Rangers and wind your way through eucalypt covered hills and boulder strewn Valleys, to where pink granite, blue seas and fine white sands collide at South Friendly Beaches. Or head to the dramatic sea cliffs of Cape Tourville for panoramic views of the Freycinet Peninsula and a glimpse of Wineglass Bay. Half Day and 2 Hour tours depart up to three times daily.

Where to start, service, safety, equipment,location, all top class.
As a group of 4 we booked the half day tour, one of our party had broken their ankle since booking. No problems for the team, prompt refund and then a passenger seat in the Polaris with the great guide Nicky.
Our quad bike first timer went through the training and then off we set, great scenery and wonderful views.
Morning tea on a beach with views to die for, not to mention great muffins and a cuppa.
We then set off for a another beach, lunch there, fresh rolls and some cookies as well.
The tracks through the park were challenging enough that the experienced enjoyed the drive, but our novice wasn’t intimidated or scared.
Overall a great way to see the natural beauty of the area on quality well maintained equipment with a great knowledgeable guide who added to the overall experience.

Mt Amos Climb

Reviewed By AlbanyRick - Albany, Australia

While the rest of the family did the shorter walk to the Wineglass Bay lookout (1-1.5 hrs, 200m high), I tackled Mt Amos (450m high). The picture at the start of the track makes it seem more scary than it really is, probably to frighten away tourists who shouldn't be doing it. But it does involve some real rock hopping and scrambling, and you do need to be very fit and agile to make it to the top. Good shoes and dry conditions also essential. They recommend allowing 3-5 hours, it took me an hour to the top (with a few short breaks) and 50 minutes down, with half an hour enjoying the views on top.
The track is quite tricky in places, and I ended up with quite a few grazes and slipped a few times, but it was all worth it. The rocks are very slippery in some spots, and you have to slide down and crawl up. Some climbers were definitely struggling, especially going down. If there is any moisture at all, it would be super dangerous, so if it is raining or even slightly wet, don't even bother attempting this.
Fairly busy, but nothing in comparison to the high traffic going to the more popular and lower lookout. The views on the way up are beautiful, with a great outlook over Coles Bay. But the best view is at the very top, because only then do you get to see Wineglass Bay. Very expansive views, but on a sunny day, completely outstanding.
One of my best ever hikes, for the challenge of the scrambling needed on the way up and down, and the views at the top. I imagine this experience will be hard to top during my visit to Tasmania, I loved it that much!

Cape Tourville Lighthouse

Reviewed By Thirko - Brisbane, Australia

We went here on the advice of the owner of the Pondering Frog. Cape Tourville is often mentioned as a landmark in the world-famous Sydney to Hobart yacht race.The road through the National Park is quite narrow and windy but the views are well worth the short drive and even shorter walk. Great spot for some great views and photos, even on a grey day that we encountered.

Freycinet National Park

Reviewed By sooie n - Monument, Colorado

Probably the most iconic feature of the park is Wineglass Bay, just as lovely-looking as the pictures. However a 1-l/2 hour trek brought us to the overlook with probably another 45 minute walk to the bay. There are no roads to the bay, so it must be accessed by either hiking or by boat. My son climbed the trail up one of the Hazards and enjoyed the challenge, view, and got some amazing photos. I played with the wallabies in the parking lot. But we both took the short walk to the lighthouse. The views are spectacular, and the walkway is fenced atop the cliff that falls to the sea and is in very good condition. However, the lighthouse itself is not open to the public. Cole's Bay is the town at the end of the crescent beach at the start of the park, and there are several accommodations there and restaurants. We stayed in Swansea at the other end of the bay as there were no vacancies in Cole's when we were there. But it was about a 35-40 minute drive to the park.

Wineglass Bay Cruises

Reviewed By Andrew B - Kanwal

Dont get me wrong but I am comparing this tour with the Maria Island Tour, which is the bees knees.
They are similar with seeing wildlife, history, rock formations, wonderful views but this tour goes for 4 hours where the Maria Tour goes all day for the same costs.
Wineglass Bay Cruises have wonderful staff, very informative commentary, excellent lunch at Wineglass Bay but sadly you don't get a look inside the caves. We did see dolphins and other exotic wildlife. Very comfortable ride. Do pay the extra and go upstairs.

Wineglass Bay Lookout

Reviewed By Judi M - Trafalgar, Australia

Always wanted to see WineglassBay and finally I did. Took the walk up to the lookout and marvelled at the view. While up the top a rock wallaby with joey walked around the small crowd that was there. Would have walked down to the beach but the track was closed for maintenance, maybe next time.
