Explore a peninsula of pink granite mountains, pure white beaches and turquoise sea in Freycinet National Park. Capture the perfect contours of Wineglass Bay on your camera. Then swim, boat, fish, snorkel and scuba dive from the dreamy white beach. Go abseiling in the Hazards and four-wheel drive to Cape Tourville Lighthouse, where the view will make you dizzy.
Bushwalk past Aboriginal middens and learn about the French explorers who first discovered this paradise. At the end of the day, relax in a lodge overlooking Great Oyster Bay with a meal of fresh seafood and glass of wine made from local vines.
