What people say

"Open 24/7 but a national parks pass is required and camping fees may apply. Freycinet National Park is about 2.5 hours' drive north from Nipaluna/Hobart and south from Launceston. This is still Simon's favourite place in the world! He loves the majestic granite peaks of The Hazards, and it's still a magic moment every time they come into view driving towards Freycinet. The campsite at the end of Wineglass Bay Beach is also one of our absolute favourites. But you don't have to rough it in a tent to visit Freycinet - there's budget to luxe accommodation options to suit everyone. Freycinet is a global drawcard - it is iconic, memorable and breathtaking. The park is best known for the stunning beauty of Wineglass Bay - its crystal-clear waters and curvaceous white beach is one of Tasmania’s most celebrated views. Beyond Wineglass Bay, there’s plenty more to uncover at Freycinet. The diversity in the coastal landscape is dramatic, with rocky coves and surging surf around one corner, and sheltered bays and sandy beaches around the next. Although one of Tasmania’s most popular national parks, it is still possible to find solitude in the variety of experiences that await you at Freycinet. You shouldn't need any more convincing from us to visit Freycinet! But if you have any questions or want some more tips - please reach out to us at "
"Freycinet National Park is one of Tasmania's oldest national parks. It, along with the Derwent Valley's Mount Field National Park, was established in 1916. The park covers most of the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania's east coast. Its rugged coastline includes pink and red granite formations, jagged granite peaks call "the Hazards," and stunning Wineglass Bay. The land is covered with forests and more than 80 orchid species. Red-necked wallabies, echidnas, and lots of skinks (lizards) live here. The park is famous for its turquoise water and white-sand beaches. Expect a lot of day hikers and overnight campers in Tasmania's most-popular national park. But once you're able to escape the crowds, you'll have gorgeous views all to yourself. Note: You must buy a pass to visit Tasmania's national parks. You can choose between a day pass (valid for 24 hours) or, if you plan on visiting multiple parks, a holiday pass (valid for up to two months)."
