Water Activities to do in Freycinet Peninsula, Tasmania

Freycinet National Park

The Freycinet Peninsula is a stunning area in the east coast of Tasmania; it just provides pure natural beauty with the area being surrounded by pinkish mountains, rain forests and white sand beaches. When all you want to do is unwind and have a few days away from work — this is one of the places you can visit with your family and friend. It can also be that place when you can have some of those adventurous activities you haven’t tried  before. Do check out the best overlooking lodges you can get within the area before your trip.

Within the Freycinet National Park are the equally beautiful Coles Bay and the Wineglass Bay where you can do a number of water activities.


In Coles Bay, you can experience a 3-hour kayak experience on its clear waters. You can easily rent from the operators near the bay, and depending on your experience and strength in kayaking you can paddle alone or, opt to go along with a guide. Paddling along this area can be tough though due to the water currents. Moving along this coastline, and if you are lucky enough, you can even have a chance to see wildlife like dolphins, penguins and eagles.

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving

Honeymoon Bay and Sleepy Bay are just two of the ideal spots for snorkeling and scuba diving in the area. Its clear waters and the marine wildlife — including colorful reefs — makes snorkeling and diving here more interesting.

The Wineglass Bay is the most iconic spot in the Freycinet National Park, and possibly in the entire Tasmania. And cruising in this area means having 4 hours of breathtaking view around its coastline.


Truly, this is one of the places in Australia that makes tourists much more closer to nature. Apart from these activities, there are much more activities to discover that I could not all put into one article. Visitors can even enjoy, hiking, rock climbing, or even just a pure walking trip while admiring its panoramic view. Check out the

I'm Phoebe, a writer who lives in the bustling city of Manila in the Philippines. Apart from staying in this archipelagic country with various interesting beaches, mountains and plains, hey,I still want to travel the world. I was lucky to visit a few Asian countries. I found the (very!) best egg tarts I've ever tasted in Jordan, Kowloon; fell truly in-love with Thailand's serenity and Phuket's seascape; visited Singapore three times and finding out new interesting places each time; and flew at 72 meters above sea level in Sentosa's Zipline. With these few trips, it fueled me to achieve more travels in the next few years. I dreamt to travel farther and wider across the globe, with the promise of setting foot on Paris before I die. I'm not afraid to travel alone. And I'm not afraid to get lost, that is part of the journey. I can walk all day and night exploring the city, the culture and relish the different delicacies. With travelling, there is much languages to learn, cultures to understand, people to know, and I am ready for that. These all shows the risk-taker in me. Apart from jumping to different places, I love to work and to write (wherein working and writing does not make any difference to me). I take opportunities as they come, with the fear that it will never come again. With that said, I am very eager to take part on each of your journeys and share whatever experiences and knowledge I have to help each of you (our readers) have a trip that you cannot forget. Cheers!
