Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach Circuit (56)

great-short-walk-mapFollowing on from the walk to the Wineglass Bay lookout, this is regarded as one of the greatest of all Tasmanian walks. The (3.5hr) return circuit follows the coast and along the foothills of Mount Mayson.

From the lookout the track descends to Wineglass Bay and then cuts across the neck of the Freycinet Peninsula to Hazard Bay, before following the coastline along Great Oyster Bay back to the car park.

Of course you may choose to walk the track in either direction, however, most visitors eager for a first glimpse of Wineglass Bay choose to visit the lookout first.

Bus Pass New Zealand

The long walk, as with the walk to the lookout, is rated as Level 3 and suitable for people with a reasonable level of fitness. It is not recommended for people with health problems or of limited mobility, as there are some steep uphill climbs and a rough descent from the lookout to Wineglass Bay itself.

Good footwear, sun protection and clothing suited to the weather of the day are recommended. It is advisable to carry a light jacket or jersey, along with food and drink.

No pets, firearms or bicycles are permitted in the park.

About the Author:

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people. My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch. My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
