Our favourite part of Tasmania would probably be Freycinet National Park, a peninsula along Tassie’s rugged eastern coast, where we camped on days 8 and 9 of our recent adventure. Red-orange granite mountains, white-sand beaches, and crystal torquoise waters fill the breathtaking landscape. Our campsite was on the edge of Richardsons Beach with views out toward The Hazards mountain range.
Our first order of business was to check off item #4 on the list of 30 Things To Try Before You Die in Australia: go for a twilight kayak in the seas around Freycinet.
After an exhausting day, we enjoyed dinner at our campsite alongside some cute possums and drifted off to the sound of waves crashing along the nearby shore.
The next day we hiked over The Hazards to look out upon Wineglass Bay, named by the editors of Frommer’s as one of the top 10 beaches in the world.
Of course we couldn’t stop there, so we continued down to the beach and made our way back along the western coast of the peninsula. Absolutely beautiful.
