Enjoy the adventure of riding your own all-terrain vehicle to isolated parts of the Freycinet National Park. Riding on ATVs, you will discover Freycinet's magical beaches and spectacular granite cliffs on a fully-guided tour, getting a truly special insight into this rarely seen coastal environment.
A quad bike tour is the perfect way to get off the beaten track and discover some of Freycinet's lesser known beauty spots! The team of professional guides have extensive ATV experience. Best of all, no previous experience is necessary and all training is provided! Your two hour adventure starts at the stunning Coles Bay on the East Coast of Tasmania, the gateway to the Freycinet Peninsula. At the start of the tour you will learn the basics of quad riding, including safe ATV handling and riding technique. From here your guide takes you for an unforgettable journey through the coastal forest along 4WD tracks to either of two stunning destinations. Ride to south Friendly Beaches - pristine, white sandy beach that can only otherwise be accessed on foot, or travel through boulder strewn valleys to Bluestone Bay and then on to admire the Coastal Cliffs surrounding Cape Tourville Lighthouse. During the tour there is a strong emphasis on interpretive experience of the national park and your guide will provide you with a full appreciation of the area with its rich cultural, historical and environmental heritage. Using ATVs allows people to feel a sense of freedom and connect with the area. You ride the bumps, feel the breeze and take in the sights and smells of nature. The combination of single rider ATV’s and three-seater passenger vehicles allows everyone to join in. The vehicles have automatic transmission, are simple to operate and suitable for beginners and up.
