Wineglass Bay Lookout, Coles Bay

#1 of 29 in Trails in Tasmania
Must see · Trail · 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.

  • We hiked early morning. It is an easy walk but around 360 steps to the top. During Covid they have installed a lovely viewing platform at the top. Highly recommend this walk.  more »
