Entered the bay by boat from Saffire Freycinet. Wonderful trip along the coast to the pristine waters of the Bay. Sheltered mooring and delicious morning tea, saw the sea eagle, and rays in the bay, seals on the way and dropped by some fishermen, catching...More

After the climb to the Lookout it is nice to walk down to the beach where there are rocks to sit on and admire the scenery. Don't retrace your steps if you have time - continue on via the Isthmus track and Hazards Beach back...More

We where lucky enough to have the beach to ourselves one afternoon, the surrounding mountains frame this beach and really make it feel special. The walk in was well worth it to be able to sit on the sand and soak in the sounds and...More

Such a special place in June when nobody is there and you have the whole beach to yourself. Pack a picnic basket, walk a bit further from the trailhead and enyoy a privilage of being in a place like that.

The walk down to the beach is absolutely beautiful, the waves are crystal clear and a gorgeous blue. I spent a couple of hours on the beach and I could've stayed all day. The only downside is the steep walk from the lookout down to...More

Well trodden path of around 90 minutes duration. Gradual climb up - steep in parts but no challenge if in average health and fitness. Great vantage spots along the way. Good parking and toilets and opportunity to refill your water bottle. Many good photo opportunities.

go for a long walk, or even a short one and see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Hazards walk is a good 6 hours at a slow pace, plenty of climbing up to view Wineglass Bay. Been a few times in...More

To get to Wineglass bay, you need to hike down. The bay looks more beautiful from the top at Wineglass Bay lookout than close up, but nevertheless it is nice to walk on the beach. You can also take a cruise around the bay.
