Friendly Beaches is a 5.9km, grade 2 Return hike located in Friendly Beaches Reserve Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.
This track is just 10m long and lands you on a long white sandy beach. From here you can explore for minutes or hours in either direction.
The Friendly Beaches form part of Freycinet National Park. Fishing and surfing are two popular pastimes, although persons enterering the water must be aware that this is an unpatrolled beach and conditions can be dangerous.
One of Tasmania’s few native terrestrial mammals that is on the threatened species list is found in the area. Indeed, the New Holland mouse was first discovered in Tasmania in 1976 in the heathlands of the Friendly Beaches. It is listed as rare.
