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

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.

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

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.

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!
