Day 1 - Launceston to Freycinet
We head down the midlands highway with a short break in the historic Campbeltown. We continue towards the Freycinet peninsula and will break for lunch on one of the many scenic stops on the way. Next we explore friendly beaches on the eastern side of the peninsula. This long white beach is perfect for strolling along enjoying the view and beach combing for the latest wonders brought in with the tides. We then make our way to our exclusive accommodation and if you are up for a memorable scenic paddle then we will transport you to the point of departure. After completing the days adventures we will cook a hearty meal and enjoy it by the camp fire with great views of Great Oyster Bay

Day 2 - Wine Glass Bay and surrounds
11K's - 6 Hours - including several breaks and lunch
After a good breakfast we depart for the iconic Wine Glass Bay. We will continue past the look out and descend to the beach itself. We have time to explore one of the most recognisable beaches in Australia and swim if the conditions are good. We continue this stunning walk through mixed coastal natives and eucalyptus forest as we cross to the other side of Freycinet peninsula to Hazards beach. We wander north taking in the scenery and we will stop where the trial heads inland and have another swim then make a tasty lunch. Felling refreshed we continue on the return journey wuth a little rock hopping along the coast before linking up with the walking trail that leads us back through granite hills and casurina forest
After the walk there are a number of options from the scenic look out or Sleepy Beach, or if you prefer a stop by the local cafe's for a coffee or a well earned beer

Day 3 - Freycinet to Launceston
After a relaxed breakfast we pack up and have a chance to see any sights on the peninsula. Next we make our way back to Launceston via Bicheno and the Fingall Valley. There will be time to walk on the white beaches with red lichen covered rocks that are typical of the Bay of Fires area further up the coast. After a lunch break in Bicheno there are many options from walking in the forested gorges in the Douglas Apsley NP to a visit to a great wildlife park that has a population of Tasmanian Devils
We will usually get back to Launceston between 4.30 and 5 pm. We can drop people off at the Airport on the way if they are leaving that day
