DescriptionTake a guided day trip from Hobart to explore one of Tasmania's most iconic destinations, Wineglass Bay, located on the Freycinet Peninsula. Wander along rugged coastal tracks, slurp an oyster plucked straight from the sea, eat berries, chat with winemakers, and enjoy the sound of the ocean waves. Travel on the Great Eastern Drive, winding through the countryside along Tasmania’s east coast. Stop at several towns on the way, including Orford and Triabunna, for views of the mountainous Maria Island across the water. At Swansea, pause to take in the panoramas of the granite peaks of the Hazards of the Freycinet Peninsula. Next, on the road between Swansea with Little Swanport, see the historical landmark of Spiky Bridge made out of field stones – without any mortar or cement – by local convicts in 1843. Learn how its jagged flagstones were used to prevent cattle from falling over the edge. Then, follow a trail leading up to a lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay. If time permits, dip your toes into the turquoise waters and wander the sparkling white sand of Wineglass Bay Beach. After working up an appetite, head to Devil’s Corner Winery for lunch at (cost not included). Sip on a pinot noir or sparkling wine as you eat a delicious meal with scenic views of Freycinet National Park. Finally, choose to sample salty oysters plucked straight from the waters of the Great Oyster Bay at Freycinet Marine Farm, or take a trip to Kate’s Berry Farm to indulge in berry favorites such as ice cream, pie, and chocolates (at your expense).
