“Amazing Scenery, Range of Walks, Well Organised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Freycinet National Park is a "must see, must do" on anyone's itinerary visiting Tasmania. The National Park is well organised with signage, parking, pathways and bathroom facilities. There are a range of walks from the short and easy to the long and difficult but all offer amazing wildlife, fauna and views. Entry tickets cover a 24 hour period so if, like us, you are staying somewhere else, we spent the afternoon bushwalking, went to our accommodation and rested overnight and then came back the next morning. Would love to spend more time here on my next trip.

“Beautiful walks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Do the walk from the carpark to Wineglass Bay lookout. This is a 45 min walk. If you feel good, go down to the Wineglass beach, this is another 1 h walk. It's fairly steep at some points so remember that because you'll have to do it coming back up..
If the wind is blowing from the East (ocean), walk from Wineglass beach to Hazardous beach. This is a 1 h walk but nice and flat
To return from Hazardous to the main carpark, just head on the direct track (avoiding returning all the way via Wineglass bay). This is a comfortable 2 h walk and you'll most likely see some Wallabies very close along the way
All the other lookout points on the map you get at Info Centre are well worth a visit. They're easily accessed with a car and just a 5 min walk. Sleepy Bay is a really nice one too

“Another great weekend with the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We booked two huts at Lake Dobson for the night, 3 adults and 8 young children, the Talopea Yellow and Red are great for a group booking as they are connected with an extra living room in between. The huts are basic but clean and a great place to base yourself while you head out exploring the park, you need to take everything with you as there is no power or cooking facilities. The road is very windy up to the top and could be quite slippery in places. The staff at the visitors information were excellent and very helpful. Will definately be going back.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

We payed a visit to the centre on the way through and did the walk out to russell falls which is a lovely casual walk and a stunning slice of nature. We hiked a little further up the track to the top of the falls and it is just as gorgeous from there.
After that we drove to the top of mount field and it was a lovely snow covered paradise. After a little now hike we came back down and did the glow worm walk just by the falls, at night for obvious reasons.
You require a national park pass for any national parks in tas, we purchased a holiday pass from the visitor centre here for $60
