Well known for its beauty, Freycinet National park has pristine beaches backed by massive pink granite mountains Mount Freycinet and the Hazards. The pink granite of the Hazards is caused by iron oxide in feldspar. Therefore, take the time and enjoy the turquoise water and the white sandy beach at Wineglass Bay.

The water supply is limited. Consequently, ensure you carry enough water during your trip.

Freycinet National park is a very special place for walkers. You can only access the park by walking or by boat. Freycinet Peninsula Circuit should definitely be on your bucket list.
