2 Day Stay

Just staying two days, well it's not really long enough, but if it was me I would not miss out on Wineglass Bay, Freycinet National Park, and Maria Island. Now remember you are coming here to see natural wonders and nature so a lot of places you will visit are not full of shops so be prepared.

 Here are a few suggestions I would make, if you have any idea or sees things that you think should be added just let me know and I can add them.

Day 1

I would start the day with a cuppa on your Balcony, I would suggest booking an Ocean view room, they may be a little more expensive but you have a gorgeous view and a larger room. Relax, see if the Dolphins are in the Bay and enjoy the sunriseYou never get tired of the view

Head out early if possible and drive towards Coles Bay, If you really want to taste Tasmania STOP at

The Pondering Frog

Open from 9am until 5pm in winter and 8.00am until 7pm in summer.

Try their homemade ice creams.  Have a berry ice cream, their famous chocolate coated ice cream or for a true indulgence a berry sundae with home made raspberry or strawberry topping.

They also offer Devonshire teas with a super large scone, scrumptious pancake stacks, toasted sandwiches and soup just to mention a few things you can ponder.

They source most of their ingredients locally for a true taste of Tasmania and menu's varies according to supply. You can also try tastings of  cherry wines and liqueurs and homemade jams, chutneys, pickles and toppings. Your will find local honey and fruit liqueurs. Their range is continually expanding . 

Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park

You can pretty much fill in your whole day wandering around Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay, 

Freycinet National Park consists of knuckles of granite mountains all but surrounded by azure bays and white sand beaches. The dramatic peaks of the Hazards welcome you as you enter the park. Freycinet is effectively two eroded blocks of granite -  the Hazards and the Mt Graham/Mt Freycinet sections of the peninsula - joined by a sand isthmus.

There are a variety of different walks to take if you want to wander around Freycinet National Park or see Wineglass Bay. We have more information on these walks on our webpage under Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park. Boardwalk at Cape Tourville Freycinet National Park 

If you cannot do the big walks Cape Tourville is Wheelchair friendly and easy walking, take in the panorama of Sleepy & Wineglass Bay and allow the coastline and ocean to unfold before your eyes.

There are some lovely places to stop and take pictures along this walk.

If you would like something a little more relaxed.
