From the carpark and up the steps to each of the lookout points the trail can often be crowded, but for good reason! The views here over the bay are tremendous and really highlight the beauty of Freycinet. Once you walk past the lookouts and arrive at the beach it is much more secluded and less crowded, you might even have the beach to yourself. You can picnic on the beach, or go for a swim in the teal blue waters. The steps going up and down the mountain saddle in each direction can be a bit tiresome, but most people of average fitness should be able to handle it with no issues. This is absolutely a must do walk in Tasmania!

I would encourage any one who wants to get away from the crowds to actually walk down to the bay instead of looking from the view points. The beach is beautiful, the walk is really enjoyable and relatively shaded. Path is well maintained. If you’re quiet you have a chance to see some beautiful Aussie wildlife too!

From the parking till the view point is a bit crowded with tourists, but from the view point to the beach it wasn't. that was my experience. the view point is the highlight of this hike. the beach is nice but nothing special about it.

Très, trop bien standardisé avec beaucoup de promeneurs jusqu’à la plage , mais la balade est belle et nous sommes seuls au camping de wineglass bay.

Good walk- up to the look out well worn you loose 80% of the people from there on. The view is spectacular and the beach is worth the walk down. Even though it says over 1000 steps it’s not a heavy task for a mid range fitness. 35 min from beach to lookout and a further 30 min to car park-10-7 and 5year old in tow.( kids are well exposed to hiking). Amazing place to go!
