Tasmania has lots of good beaches but as it boasts one of the top ten beaches in the world we're making the choice easy for you. Strap on some shoes, pack the cozzie and get yourself to Wineglass Bay. You won't regret it.
Don’t let a two hour hike put you off from seeing this secluded clam-shaped bay touted as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Located deep within Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay is a sheltered beach covered in white sand fringed by vibrant turquoise waters. The white sand contrasts beautifully with the pink granite peaks known as The Hazards which guard the peninsula at the northern end of the beach.
Getting to this slice of secluded paradise isn’t easy. It’s a 2 hour drive from Launceston or 3 hour trip from Hobart followed by a two hour walk from the entrance of Freycinet National Park. You’ll be rewarded with a beach that despite its growing popularity remains relatively isolated and untouched.
