The Freycinet National Park (17,000 ha) is accessed through the resort township of Coles Bay. It is immediately recognisable by the silhouette of the Hazards, a rare formation of weathered pink granite mountains, dominated by Mt Amos, Mt Dove and Mt Mayson. You can climb the Hazards, walk to the brilliant white sands of Wineglass Bay, voted one of the top ten beaches in the world or take in the seascape from the lighthouse walk at Cape Tourville. For the more adventurous embark on an overnight walk around the peninsula. Adventure tour companies also provide comfortable guided walks around the peninsula.

The Parks and Wildlife Service have a visitor centre at the entrance to the park that will assist you in discovering the park.
