1 Day Wineglass Bay and Ross Itinerary - 1 days
Wineglass Bay, Ross and Wildlife
Pick up at your accommodation in Launceston ready for an action packed day out exploring the delights and highlights of the East Coast before finishing our day in Hobart.
Our first stop today is in the pretty township of Ross. Ross has an old-world charm, convict history, and famous local bakery with Kiki’s Kitchen for you to explore on our morning stop.
From Ross we travel to the East Coast and head into the Freycinet National Park. This coastal National Park is our main destination for the day. Here the pink granite mountains form the backdrop for turquoise waters, secluded bays and beaches and sparkling white sand. We offer opportunities for short or longer walks, a swim in the warmer months and great photos all year round. We make a short stop as we enter the park at Freycinet Marine Farm where you have an opportunity to buy some fresh oysters along the way.
We walk as a group to the Wineglass Bay Lookout, an easy but uphill walk of around 45 – 60 minutes. Here the views make the walk well worth the effort! For the keen walkers, you can continue the walk down to Wineglass beach (2.5 hr return walking time). Once on the beach you have time to take a swim, relax, eat your lunch or meander along the white sands.
If you prefer to select the shorter walking option, then you can explore other areas of Freycinet with our tour guide. Visit Honeymoon Bay, Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville Lighthouse & great short walk.
We re-group ready for the return journey to Launceston. Still on the East Coast we make a final stop at the Devil’s Corner Vineyard. This new attraction on the East Coast has amazing views, gelato, fresh seafood including oysters, and of course wine tasting. We make time for a stop here to take it all in before commencing the final drive back into Launceston. We return to Launceston around 6.30 – 7.00pm
