The walk to the lookout is challenging so make sure you have good footwear. The park is very generous with the time allocated for the walk but allow enough time to do the walk down to bay. It adds another 90min at the absolute most to your day. It is very steepso take that tiem. You will not regret it.

The walk upto the Wineglass Bay Lookout and down to the beach is beautiful. On the way to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, the Coles Bay lookout is also quite scenic.

Nothing like the view anywhere, fantastic! A little step, good walking shoes and a water always a good idea, but so worth it!

The views over Wineglass Bay from the lookout are spectacular. The walk to the lookout from the car park is about 1 to 1.5 hours return, depending on your level of fitness and walking pace. The track is gravel and climbs steadily to the top. As you are inside the Freycinet National Park you will need to pay a park... More

Well maintained and signed path with amazing views at the top that are worth the effort. Even better if you have a guide who knows the area and can give you some local information.

Well worth the walk from the car park, make sure you get a National Park Pass. The Wallabies are cute but done feed them!

We 💛 everything.... From the lovely ranger at the info centre, to the very friendly and cute wallabies in the car park and the echidna crossing the road. If you love wildlife this is the place to see them in their natural setting. The walk was meant to be moderate.... I can't blame the park. My lack of fitness was... More

This climb to the lookout is suitable for any age group if you are fit and in good health. We have done it with our 2 and 4 yo children and now 20 years later we are still enjoying this walk. Every visit is different with the varying weather conditions of this area. Today we watched a storm accumulate in... More

Drove to Freycinet NP. Do go early in the morning to avoid the crowd. Be prepared to hike up the hill. Wear proper attire and shoe. Few lookout on the way.
