Create an itinerary including Wineglass Bay Lookout
A gentle walk of about one hour, leading through lush vegetation abundant with native wildlife, takes visitors to Wineglass Bay Lookout, situated within the Freycinet National Park. As you proceed along this trail, take a few moments to rest on the wooden furniture designed and built by local architecture students. As you catch your breath, keep an eye out for wombats and wallabies peeking out from behind the surrounding bushes. From the top, you can see not only the crescent of the wineglass-shaped bay (hence the name), but also green hills and mountains stretching into the distance. In addition to taking photos from here, you can explore other trails before returning to the bay. Work out when and for how long to visit Wineglass Bay Lookout and other Coles Bay attractions using our handy Coles Bay planning site.

  • Took us just under two hours round trip to get to Wineglass Bay Beach with just some water and a few stops for photos. Didn't spend much time on the beach either. Hope this helps some their times were quite a bit longer than we experienced but we were walking briskly. If you're quiet a wallaby might be visible on the far side by the bay.
  • Challenging but achievable walk with amazing views. If you have the time, I’d definitely recommend crossing the isthmus track and looping back via Hazards Beach. It’s a lot quieter (and flatter) and took us about 4 hours round trip
