I did this tour as part of the 'Big Three' three-day tour from Hobart to Launceston. The weather on the day of the tour was not ideal, lightly raining nearly the entire day, but I still had a lot of fun. The day started early picking everyone up from their hotels before making a quick stop shortly outside of Hobart for anyone needing to purchase lunch to take with them for the day. We made one additional stop along a beach before getting to the Freycinet National Park. From there, we had three options of walks, a short walk to a cafe/lunch spot, a walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout (a 45-minute uphill walk), or the option to extend your walk to the actual sands of Wineglass Bay (approximately 2.5 hours). Normally, I would have chosen the longer walk, but given the weather was rainy, and the guide advised there were a couple of sections of the walk to be careful on, our group of four opted for the walk to the lookout. Two of the members of the group stopped halfway to the lookout before turning to head towards the van as it was an uphill climb and a bit too much for them. After taking in the views overlooking Wineglass Bay, we headed to Honeymoon Bay and did the Cape Tourville Lighthouse Walk. The description says you stop at the Freycinet Marine Farm for oysters, but we did not, so maybe that is a seasonal thing. Because I did this as part of the 'Big Three' tour, I then switched buses to go to Launceston instead of back to Hobart so I can't comment on the trip to the Berry Farm. Overall, the day was long and tiring, but fun, and I learned a lot from the guides.

Andrew picked us up on time and he was nice chatty guide. The itinerary was as following
Stop 1: Sorell to grab a coffee and if needed get lunch as well. You might consider bringing packed lunch as this place doesn't have a lot of options.
Stop 2: Marine farm. The aim of this stop is those who fancy oysters or mussels to get a takeaway to have lunch later. Apart from oysters & mussels they only do fish and chips as takeaway. However as the lunch break is a lot later in the day better not have fish and chips as takeaway. I wish they didn't have this stop at all. The reason I am giving 4 stars to this trip.
Stop 3: Freycinet park to hike to the lookout for wine glass bay. The hike is worth for the view. You will get 2 options either do short walk and go to honeymoon bay for lunch or do a long walk and take your lunch at wineglass bay. From the lookout to the wineglass bay is 1000 steps (return to wineglass bay by climbing back those 1000 steps). Because my friends and I did short walk so our next stop was 4.
Stop 4: lunch at honeymoon bay. Very beautiful view to enjoy your picnic lunch.
Stop 5: light house. Nice view from the light house
Stop 6: Andrew dropped us at Sleepy bay for 20 mins to get the people who were doing long walk. The walk to sleepy way is breathtaking picture perfect. But 20 mins is not sufficient you have to rush yourself and not suitable for elderly people or anyone without fitness. I wish instead of the stop at Marine farm if we had been given more time here ... it would have been great.
Stop 7: Kate's berry farm... you MUST try their ice cream.

It is so beautiful in the national park and wineglass bay. Clint our tour guide is very friendly and considerate ;) one of the best day trips i have in Hobart. Most of us didn't go to wineglass bay, because it's a bit of long walk, but Clint took the rest of us to honeymoon bay and sleepy bay.

I don't remember the name for the oyster place, I loved the abalone sashimi, i think it's better than the oysters ;)

The information i receive from viator was wrong, and a few of us took towel, swim wear and jackets on a 29 degree day, because the email voucher said cave temperature is 9 degrees. But clint was nice enough to take us to a secret cave (very small one nearby the big rock) to compensate our expectation ;)

I did the tour yesterday. Jack was our driver/guide and did a very nice job.

Wineglass Bay is beautiful and the hike is not difficult.

That said, we spent about 5.5 hours in the van, all told. That's a little too much for my comfort.

The food options for lunch are also limited. I would recommend eating at the seafood (first) stop, but as we arrived, so did an entire bus of Chinese tourists who basically took over the entire place. I opted for the second choice in Coles Bay and ended up not eating because the choices were not good.

Visited here last week and while our guide, Rick, was fantastic you do spend a long time in the van.
I don't know why but we never went to the Marine farm for lunch...instead we stopped at some cafe on the way that had NO power and were asked to buy our lunch to take with us. Rick did provide an esky to put it in but by the time we ate it (several hours later) it had become a little soggy......
As someone else said it is upwards of FIVE hours driving (there and back) and while the view is nice I dont think I would do it again.

Hi! Thanks for your feedback regarding your Day Tour to Wineglass Bay & Freycinet National Park. It certainly is BIG day out, with a 2.5 hour drive from Hobart to reach Freycinet National Park on the East Coast of Tasmania. The drive along the East Coast is definitely a beautiful drive, also known as the Great Eastern Drive and takes in many breathtaking views and white sandy beaches, we have stops along the way to take in these views and to look across to Maria Island and learn a little about the local area. We do make a stop along the way for you to collect lunch supplies to take with you, if you have not pre-packed a lunch. Once we arrive at Freycinet National Park we undertake a series of walks in the National Park visiting different highlights. You have the option to do the extended walk down to Wineglass Bay beach OR the shorter walk to the Wineglass Bay Lookout with other stops in the park. We have a lunch break during this time in the National Park while exploring. On this day tour, our lunch stop is either at the stunning Honeymoon Bay or on the iconic Wineglass Bay beach, depending on which walking option you have selected on the day. We do not stop in restaurants or cafes for lunch on this tour, or in fact on any of our Active Day Tours, choosing to spend as much time exploring as we can, and enjoying a short lunch break somewhere scenic in the National Park! We offer many Active Day Tours throughout Tasmania, most of these have less driving time than the Freycinet National Park tour day. Perhaps on another visit you may wish to join us to Maria Island. This provides great walking options, amazing coastal scenery and wildlife, and a much shorter drive time! Thanks again for joining us here in Tasmania.

Fantastic full day tour from Hobart. Freycinet National Park is very beautiful, the walk to the lookout through the bush and huge rock formations is rewarded by magnificent views down to Wineglass Bay. The white sand beaches, delicious oyster lunch and meeting the folks at the wallaby rescue clinic were extra bonuses. Phil was an excellent guide and driver and looked after our every need.

Our guide Zack was wonderful. He explained a lot about "Tassie". What we particularly liked was his passion for, and knowledge, of the plants and birds we saw all along. Oysters at the Marine Farm and ice cream at Kate's Berry Farm was some of the best ever! What an idyllic spot Kate's is. The reason for the lower rating are 2 - 1) in our confirmation we were told to bring swim trunks & a towel for the hot pools and a coat for going in to the cool cave(s). Nether of these are included in the trip. 2) we were in the back seat of the van. It was quite uncomfortable as there didn't seem to be any shocks, leg room was cramped and the back hatch was loose & rattled. When travelling for 2.5-3 hours each way you'd think the company would ensure comfort.

This is a great all day trip from Hobart. We were conveniently picked up from our hotel. Our guide, David, was knowledgeable and accommodating. We were looking for not only a good way to see this area, but also a challenging hike and we got both. The whole tour goes to the lookout and then you can choose to stay with the guide, or to do a self-guided hike down (and back up!) to the beach. I highly recommend going to the beach. It's 1000 steps - sometimes steep- up and back but it is well worth it. Buy your lunch ahead of time to enjoy at the beach and don't forget to bring a bathing suit if you'd like to swim - but note that there are no changing rooms. The food stops - for oysters and jelly - are both well worth it also.

David was our tour guide, and though a bit quirky, his knowledge and love for Tasmania really shows. The national park was a bit far, but once we got there it was well worth it. The optional hikes were perfect for everyone's comfort level, and David did an excellent job leading us to Wine Glass Bay lookout. The small tour size was perfect, and helped move everything along in a timely manner. Our goal when choosing Tasmania and selecting this tour was seafood and mountains and this checked both boxes. We stopped for fresh oysters along the way and they were delicious! The eastern coast of Tasmania is breath-taking, and this tour showed us that.
Had the van been more comfortable, I would have given the tour five stars. The seats are close together, and at 5'3 my knees were killing me by the end of the day. The climate control was good, and David is an excellent driver.

We love the walk at the park, we saw a lot of great sights and it is all so nature. Clint the tour guide was good and he take time to explain to us history around the park and also give us good insight of history of Hobart along the way. Overall it is a good and eye opening walk as we really appreciate the nature that we would not have been able to experience back in Singapore.

I would like to personally thank Clint as he had bothered to return our son's jumper a day after our tour. He left it at the hotel front desk early in the morning. Thanks for making the effort and we really appreciate it.
