It's a spectacular view when you do the hike going down to the beach. Amazing Mother Nature and state park has done a fantastic job in keeping this place accessible for everyone. Trails are well done and easy to follow for elderly folks as well. Self explanatory and has enough information for you to explore the wineglass bay lookout.

A visit to Freycinet is not complete until you have climbed the Hazards and witnessed the marvel of Wineglass Bay. There are a few steps up to the lookout but nothing that would be considered dangerous, scary or difficult. Great views of the beach and peninsular. Spectacular and worth the 30 min walk- complete with Wallabies !

Nice climb up to the lockout point with lots to see along the way. The view of the bay is really beautiful and well worth the hike.

The Rangers at this National Parks information Center are very helpful and informative. I highly recommend you seek their advice if you aren't very familiar with this park. I came here on a week day off season which meant the carpark was empty with very few visible people in the park. If you want to see a kangaroo up close... More

The walk up is a bit strenuous, quite steep and many steps, but ohh its so worth it. The views are breathtaking. Paths are good and well maintained, plenty of spots to stop on the way up to take in the views and photo opportunities. We were lucky to see whales from the lookout, I'm sure alot of the other...

An amazing and gorgeous view rewards your strenuous efforts. Fellow walkers encourage each other along the way. Lots of stop and catch your breath spots. Challenge yourself and celebrate and revel in the outlook.

A very well maintained path with lots of spectacular opportunities for photos along the way up. The lookout over Wineglass Bay is worth every step. A must when visiting Coles Bay

Highly recommend the 3km walk. Well constructed path, with quite a few stairs, a couple of seats along the way if needed
