Discover east coast Tasmania on this fun filled, action packed day tour Visit Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park with opportunities to purchase the local seafood and ice-cream, and learn some history along the way.
Your day begins bright and early with a pick up from your accomodation in Launceston. The start of the drive takes you through the well-preserved Georgian townships of Evandale and Campbell Town. You'll 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.
Next stop, catch an amazing view of the area at the Great Oyster Bay Lookout, with an opportunity to purchase some fresh oysters plucked from the beautiful surrounding waters. Once inside Freycinet National Park, there are a series of walks to explore the area. Walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, a moderate uphill walk of around 45 - 60 minutes. 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 a tour guide.
On the way back, the final stop along the East Coast is the local hand-crafted ice cream parlour, or you can try a famous Tasmanian Scallop Pie! Then it is onwards into Launceston returning around 6.30pm.
