Australia - 2005-03-24 - 1 - Freycinet National Park - Wineglass Bay & Nature (Page 1)

Another of the "Must do when in Tasmania" attractions is Wineglass Bay located in Freycinet National Park. The slogan they use to promote it is rugged granite peaks & white sandy beaches & it lives up to the billing. We started out early in the morning after a good nights sleep in a nearby city. We decided to do a longer walk that included other parts of the park than just Wineglass Bay. The walk we did was the opposite of what most people do. We walked the Hazards Beach Track to Lemana Lookout, then to Hazards Beach. Then we took the Isthmus Track across the isthmus (did you see that coming). That led us to Wineglass Bay where we braved the absolutely freezing water for a short swim. We spent most of the time in water wave jumping, because there were lots of high good waves to jump. After putting back on the long pants (trousers for all my UK friends) & sweater we checked out the colored rocks near the bay. They were similar to Bay of Fires, but not as colorful or plentiful. After doing that (and me losing my fingernail clippers in the rocks) we went up the Wineglass Bay Trail, towards Wineglass Bay Lookout. We then realized why almost everyone went the other way, because it was extremely tough walking up the trail. We passed around 25 people in about 20 minutes of walking, but had to even stop for a minute ourselves at one point. Walking up the track on the left hand side were an interesting formation of rocks that I had to take some pictures of. The Wineglass Bay lookout which was phenomenal. It also had a great view of the rocks we had seen coming up the path. The panoramic picture is very nice & make sure to checkout the video for it. After that we walked back towards the car park thinking our adventure was done, but it wasn't. At the car park we saw a group of wallabies, which we were able to get really close to by acting like we had food. They obviously get quite a bit of food from people who visit the park. The last 4 pictures are from Claudia's camera, because she had a much clearer day when she had visited during the previous week.
