(Done as a 4 day walk with hut accommodation) Beautiful scenery. Walk was designed as an introduction to multiday hiking, and for families so might be a bit "cushy" for the seasoned hiker who likes to rough it.
The distances each day aren't long, so walk slowly and enjoy the landscape.
Rangers are excellent, facilities great.

You can do the walk without staying at the huts.

Fantastic 7 mile loop. We recommend starting with the lookout and getting the elevation and crowds over with first. It was crowded up at the top, but we saw almost no one on the backside and enjoyed the minimal elevation and changing landscape.

Hiked in April and the weather was mild with a few very brief showers. Took us a little over three hours at a moderate pace with few stops. A lot of wallabies and beautiful views.

Track is well maintained. Beautiful views. Moderate difficulty due to the climbs.

The views on this hike are spectacular, the overnight huts have well equipped kitchens and the beds are extremely comfortable.
The rangers at the huts are a wealth of knowledge and their daily briefs are very informative.
Each day has something amazing to offer, views, wildlife and the tracks are very well maintained.
Best 4 days of my life, absolutely loved it.

Amazing

A plesant walk with low traffic in June. Worth a visit.

Great views of the Freycinet Peninsula. Wineglass Bay Lookout has a nice view. Once you get up and over the lookout (~1.5mi), trail is pretty flat the rest of the way.

This walk is much harder than it sounds on paper. It is very rocky for almost the whole walk and some steep rocky climbs. It is also poorly marked and very often you need to retrace your steps to find the correct way. Having said that you do get spectacular views of the surrounding escarpments and the falls themselves are very impressive.

Quite a hard hike but very beautiful and the view is worth it!

Very pretty. An easy hike but lots to look at

Fantastic scenery, although the track feels a little "over-engineered" and designed to attract people who don't have much Tasmanian hiking experience. I would recommend the free version of this walk, done in one day or as an overnight walk:

Fantastic walk - took three days, but would be possible in two (approx 42km). The camping spots are nice, although at Wineglass Bay try and get a spot facing the beach (the area away from the beach and near the creek have hundreds of mosquitoes at night!). The side-track to Mt Freycinet is worth doing for the incredible views.

Solid and relentless climb to the top, but worth the effort for the view over Flinders Island. Despite hiking on a clear day, there was a fair bit of cloud swirling around the peak!

Overcrowded both at the lookout and on the beach. Absolute tourist trap! Nicer beaches to be found elsewhere without the traffic...

Most breathe taking scenery and truly life changing experience! Would do every year!

Great veiws!

a well maintained track that provided remarkable views.

This walk showcases some of the best beaches I've seen. Best done on a sunny day to let the colours fully come through. The walk can be done in around 4hrs but take lunch and take the day to enjoy the beaches. My favourite was the west end of Hazard beach. Beautiful sand and rocks to swim from.

A mix of boardwalks and trail, plenty of good views.

Just stunning, even in the rain!

We drove from Launceston at 3.30am to catch the sunrise at dove lake. Although it was a misty morning with a lot of cloud cover we were still taken back by the quiet and stillness of the lake. We began the circuit at 7am with the whole track to ourselves. Small areas of snow had not melted yet and created a light white blanket in areas over the mossy green! it truely was a magical morning and we felt like the only people in the word. I highly recommend making tye effort to escape those warm beds in the early morning and heading up the mountain to view its beauty in a quiet stillness. 10/10!!

It's a long journey to the end, and there are lots of stairs along the way, but in the end the view is worth the hike! The rock stairs along the way are very well maintained.

I completed this hike in early-January. A moderate incline and a well-maintained trail make this a fairly easy hike to the top with amazing views of Wineglass Bay as your reward. But my favorite part was discovering the adorable wallaby hiding in the rocks behind me as I was taking in the view -- my new favorite animal! I wish I had planned better and had the time to walk down to the beach. It's accessed via a trail just off the summit. Love, LOVE Tasmania!
