Cape Tourville is a 720m, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Freycinet National Park Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.


With stupendous coastal views of the Freycinet National Park, this very easy walk provides a great alternative for those who don’t feel inclined to tackle the steep hill on the Wineglass Bay lookout walk.


The lighthouse at Cape Tourville was constructed in 1971 to replace the inaccessable Cape Forestier Lighthouse which was decommissioned the same year.

The lighthouse was constructed as an automatic light and was never manned.


The East Coast and Flinders Island

Getting there

From Tasman Highway (A3) take road C302. Once inside Freycinet National Park, follow the main road, then turn left onto the Cape Tourville Road. (The 7km Cape Tourville road is unsealed but is suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles.)


Park entry fees apply.

Toilet, picnic and electric barbecue facilities 7.5km away at Ranger Creek and Honeymoon Bay.

The track is wide, with even surfaces and gently graded slopes. It may suit wheelchair users, who have someone to assist them, and walkers with strollers.

Supervise children, hazardous cliffs, stay within barriers.

No pets, firearms or bicycles.
