This was my second visit to this beach and my first with my children. The walk is quite strenuous but not difficult; however you need to make sure you have suitable shoes, a hat, sunscreen and take lots of water. We saw many people attempting this track with thongs or ladies struggling up the track wearing sandals with small heels- not a good idea. If continuing from the lookout to the beach, I'd recommend taking plenty of snacks as well. By the time we arrived at the beach we were very glad to sit down and eat and drink and take in the scenery. On the day we visited there were a few people swimming, but it's not a patrolled beach and the waves were quite large. We were happy to play in the waves and enjoy the beach. But plenty of people had come prepared with bathers and towels and were there for the day, which was great to see. The views are beautiful. There were two dolphins swimming in the water in front of us and we had a small wallaby sitting next to us on the beach too. It was lovely to sit and watch the wallaby hop around us- we just let it be and watched it. It is a remarkable beach- well worth the trek in.

Very nice walk to Wineglass Bay Lookout. On the way you also reach Coles Bay Lookout so an added bonus. Would have liked to walk down to the beach but my folks did not entertain the challenge - maybe next time. Suggest going early as it gets quite busy later on.

The walk will be challenging for many although is certainly not hard by bush walking standards. The track is of a high standard but will take most people 1.5hrs to complete return from the car park.
The views are stunning and if you have the time and fitness the 3hr return (from car park) walk to the white sand of Wineglass Bay is well worth the effort.
Please note the weather can be extreme and in summer you should ensure you have enough water and sunscreen/hat tone safe.

anyone who visits the area has to do Wineglass Bay.The scenery is great at the lookout,but you need to go down to the water and walk on the sand to really appreciate this gem of a place.Only deserves a very good bottle of wine to take with you!

I've visited Wineglass Bay Lookout on both my trips to Tasmania, and it's well worth the trip. The walking track is well maintained and a comfortable walk. Not too long, and not too steep. There are quite a few stairs though, so be warned - but you will be glad you made the effort.
