The walk to the lookout is a relatively easy walk on a well prepared track, although the fine granite sand can be slippery under foot. The walk can be hot in summer with the heat reflecting off the granite. The views are spectacular from the lookout and it is a must do if you are on the East Coast of... More

Great hike to the lookout with breathtaking few, and if you have time do the 8 km hike that takes in the beach. We went on sunny day in winter so there was hardly any people, but believe it gets quite busy in summer.

Great view but seen better. The view from Cape Tourville is much better and an easier quicker walk. Took about 90 minutes around trip

Great walk took just under 90 minutes all up, getting to the lookout and enjoying the view. Not a real difficult climb, the tract is well maintained and easy to traverse. If you are not that fit then just take it a little slower and you will be fine. On the walk up you are pretty much sheltered from the... More

A must see in Tassie. Enjoy the walk but don't forget to take water and wear good walking shoes. Beautiful scenery back towards Cole Bay as well

Winter time on a nice day is a perfect time to check this place out,minimal people, so take your time when walking to this spot. The rock formations are unique and the vistas are excellent. We did see a Wallaby on our walk,the kids were stoked.

I actually found this walk a bit hard. Not for people over the age of 60 unless you are super fit. The going down was every bit as hard as the going up. The paths are a bit rough and very steep in places. Didn't have enough water with us which was silly of us. The water looks amazing but... More

No trip to Tassie is complete without completing this walk. It's an uphill walk to the lookout but can be completed by anyone with a medium fitness level. The view of Wineglass Bay is spectacular. From the lookout, you can then walk about a kilometre downhill to the bay and beach itself. It's truly an invigorating and beautiful walk. Our... More

My girlfriend and I did this walk on a beautiful sunny morning. It's a short walk, but rather intense given the steep inclines. Plenty of places to rest if need be, and an all round enjoyable walk. The views were immaculate. Not even going to bother uploading a photo because there are much better ones on here already, but none... More

In Coles Bay area is the Freycinet National Park. It is a bit of a drive from Hobart but it is an excellent area to go bushwalking, hiking and if you are game to go rock climbing. Wineglass Bay walk is about 2 hours return. It is one of this area's walk that has views over white sands of Wineglass... More
