Camping at Freycinet National Park on the East Coast of Tasmania shows off the island’s best beaches. It has the beauty of a tropical getaway, but without the sweltering heat.
We camped at Honeymoon Bay. The beach was right on our doorstep and we had flushing toilets only a short walk away (Yay!).
We had some friendly visitors around the camp site.
But beware of the possums! They will eat any food they can find and they are not at all shy. They tried to steal our kebabs right off the gas cooker, and they ate our fruit salad!
One of the most spectacular sights in Tasmania is Wineglass Bay. It’s a couple of hours walk, but no trip to Tassie is complete without it.
If you have the rest of the day free, it’s worth taking the Wine Glass Bay/Hazards Beach circuit walk. It takes longer, but it’s mostly flat and you get a bonus beach. Hazards Beach had fewer people and it truly matched Wine Glass Bay’s crystal blue waters.
After a day of walking, we were pleased to head back to our campsite and watch the sun go down.
