As well as all the local activities available in the Freycinet area, there are guided walking tours available for bookings, which are based at Freycinet Retreat. For more information, please visit our dedicated micro site www.walkfreycinet.com, or follow the tab from the menu above.
If you are not on one of our organised tours, but you are staying at Freycinet Retreat you are welcome to wander around the 1200 acres of bush and forest which is home to a great variety of wildlife. With 18 dams on the property the wildlife populations can be greater than in the neighboring National Park.
You can enjoy 360 degree views of the Freycinet Peninsula, and with no light pollution the night sky is something to behold. We do occasionally also get stunning views of the Aurora Australis.
For a more competitive activity we have three orienteering courses mapped out, which vary in length and difficulty.
As well as the world famous walk to Wineglass Bay, within the neighbouring Freycinet National Park, there is a range of local activities available including bushwalking, kayaking, sea cruises, scenic flights, wine tasting and oyster farm tours – for more information please follow the tab on the menu above or the following link: Local Area Activities
The East Coast of Tasmania offers some beautiful, if a little chilly, swimming beaches, notable ones being Binalong Bay and Redbill Beach in Bicheno. Muirs Beach in Coles Bay and the Swan River Estuary at nearby Swanwick are popular with the locals, and if you’re doing the Wineglass Bay loop walk, then a dip at Hazards Beach can be very refreshing, and often calmer than Wineglass Bay itself. None of the local beaches have lifeguard facilities, so swimmers should exercise caution as there can be rips.
