Circuit walk

Great track up to the lookout with stunning views. Definitely worth walking the circuit to the Hazards too. The sign said 5 hours but we did it easily in 3.5 with a lunch stop

We did the short 1.5 hour hike up to the lookout point and it was gorgeous! The view is spectacular! We spent the rest of the day driving around Freycinet National Park up to the light house and sleepy bay and I would highly recommend it. In fact, I think I would come back and do it all over again... More

Steps are pretty painful but it's short and sweet. Excellent views. Water is warmer in coles bay but wineglass is stunningly beautiful.

Whole family ventured up to the lookout and then over to Wineglass Bay. A first (to the bay) for our boys. Both handled the hike in good spirits!

Pack a lunch or snack. Hike to the lookout and then down to the beach for a lunch break. Lovely views both above and below. Went in winter and comfortable to hike. Bring bathers if you go summer to enjoy the beach ! Also recommend the shirt sleepy bay hike and the lighthouse nearby :)

The carpark at the beginning of the walk is about a 10 minute drive from the National Parks office where you need to get your permit ($24 for a day pass). The walk is well maintained and fairly easy going with a few steps along the way. The views overlooking Wineglass Bay are spectacular, along with some awesome views of... More

First of I am not much of a hiker but they make it relatively easy with a superb trail with benches along the route. Part of the trail is one way - so those going up do not have to make way for those coming down - excellent planning. A bonus for me was that I saw wallabies!! Once you... More

A beautiful walk, not too hard, but wonderful scenery. We even saw Whales. A very beautiful part of the world. So glad we managed to fit this walk into our trip and the weather was on our side for a few ours that day.

This hike is not the easiest but well worth the view. We continued down to wineglass bay but this section is even more strenuous, especially on the way back!
