Freycinet Beaches

Freycinet Beaches

The Freycinet Peninsula contains numerous spectacular beach locations all the way around the coastline. The erosion of the granite mountains over the past millions of years has resulted in the beaches having picture perfect, soft white sand. The amazing white sand and the clear bright blue water creates a perfect backdrop for stunning photographs and idyllic beach outings.

Wineglass Bay
This flawless crescent of dazzling white sand and sapphire-coloured sea set against pink and grey granite peaks is one of Australia’s most beautiful natural environments. An almost perfect curve of pure white sand fringed by turquoise waters has earned Wineglass Bay the title of one of the best beaches in the entire world as voted by several international travel authorities.
Wineglass Bay has a climate that is similar to that of France, but with more than 300 days of sunshine every year.
Wineglass Bay has become a favourite honeymoon destination for couples to escape and relax away from the rest of the world.

The walk to Wineglass Bay involves an uphill climb through The Hazards to a rocky lookout high in the mountain side. A stop at the lookout provides a perfect opportunity to sit back and relax and take some fantastic photos of Wineglass Bay and the stunning coastline. Following the track downhill brings you out at the pure white sand and crystal clear water. Wineglass Bay is a perfect place for a swim, a picnic and a lay on the beach. If you set out early in the morning you could find you have the entire beach to yourself. Watch for wildlife including white-bellied sea-eagles, quolls, wallabies, wombats and Tasmanian devils. Or, take to the water on a scenic cruise where you might be lucky enough to witness dolphins diving or a pod of migrating whales in the clearest water you’ll see anywhere. (source:

Friendly Beaches
The Friendly Beaches is a section of spectacular coastline that was added to the Freycinet National Park in 1992 due to its diversity and untouched nature.

The area is quite private and remote and in many cases you could find you have the 12km beach all to yourself. The area is a great place for surfing and swimming but just keep in mind that due to the remoteness of the area, and the fact that the beach is not patrolled by life guards that extra care needs to be taken.

Sandpiper Beach
Sandpiper Beach is the closest beach to The Blue House, only a few minutes walk away. The beach faces Great Oyster Bay and looks out towards Schouten Island and Maria Island. The beach is sheltered from the rough ocean waves as it is on the western side of the Freycinet Peninsula. There are many walking tracks onto the beach and it is a great place for an early morning walk or a relaxing area for beach fishing.

Sandpiper Beach is an amazing place to be as the sun sets as the colours in the sky are truly spectacular as the sun sets over Great Oyster Bay.

The Freycinet Peninsula contains many other beautiful beaches including:
• Bryans Beach
• Cooks Beach
• Hazards Beach
• Honeymoon Bay
• Muirs Beach
• Richardsons Beach
