Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Freycinet
Come to the Freycinet armed with a camera; this luxury getaway is worth the happysnaps
If destinations ever had to compete in an Olympic event ranking scenery and natural wonders, Freycinet Peninsula would be a gold medallist. And if the Peninsula’s drawcards were athletes, Freycinet National Park is the star. The park is a paradise of sheltered bays, pristine beaches, challenging treks and pink granite mountains. One glimpse and you'll be hooked, so visitors are left little choice except to explore and marvel at all this spit of land offers.
First things first though: location. The Peninsula juts out almost halfway along Tasmania's East Coast. The drive here comes in at less than two-and-a-half hours from both Hobart and Launceston - that is, unless you're tempted to stop off in one of the towns you pass through on the way. Use Coles Bay as your springboard for exploring Freycinet. This seaside village overlooks the clear waters of Oyster Bay and has a bank of accommodation options - from luxury escapes to more hip pocket-friendly stays - for visitors not wanting to fit their Freycinet experience into one hurried day trip.
Travellers with their own wheels can take Freycinet Drive to the Wineglass Bay car park and continue to the lookout point on foot. No matter how well worn your walking shoes, exploring the National Park by foot is a must. There are short and challenging walks, and the rewards for each are worth the effort. Up for a workout? Walk the entire length of the Peninsula. It takes a minimum of two days and the pay off is having remote destinations, including Cooks and Bryans Beaches, to yourself. More leisurely pursuits can be had by slurping on freshly-shucked oysters, heading out on a guided kayak tour (where the currents do most of the graft for you), or simply kicking back on the balcony or deck of your luxury Freycinet accommodation.
How will you see the Freycinet Peninsula? Your first move is booking accommodation for your luxury getaway. Toss up between five-star lodges and super luxe retreats, mountain cabins and cottages, or homely B&Bs and self-catering apartments.
