Wineglass Bay Lookout is a 3km, grade 3 Return hike located in Freycinet National Park Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.


The crystal clear waters and white sandy beach of Wineglass Bay are a tremendous sight. This is a steep uphill walk on a rocky, well-constructed track within the Freycinet National Park.


The rock type along this walk is granite which was formed during the Devonian. Although not common in Tasmania, granite forms some spectacular features in the Freycinet National Park.
