LOCAL ATTRACTIONS : Optional

Enjoy the wonderful and colourful local attractions of this magnificent area when you stay with us at Freycinet Lodge. There is so much to do in Freycinet National Park and on the east coast of Tasmania, whether you’re after a foodie tour, a driving tour of the local area or an active adventure.
Some of our suggestions of what to do on the east coast

Friendly Beaches: The Friendly Beaches (20 minutes drive from Freycinet Lodge) forms part of Freycinet National Park and is 9km of pristine scenery and sand. Fishing and surfing are two popular pastimes, although persons entering the water must be aware this is an unpatrolled beach and conditions can be dangerous.

Wineglass Bay: One of Australia’s most famous and recogniseable beaches. Enjoy the climb to the Wineglass Bay lookout, the walk on the beach itself or the Hazards Circuit if you feel like exploring further. For those who prefer to cruise, we can recommend joining a Wineglass Bay Cruise.

Cape Tourville Lighthouse: With stupendous coastal views of the Freycinet National Park, this very easy walk provides a great alternative for those who don’t feel inclined to tackle the steep hill on the Wineglass Bay lookout walk. Located just 5 minutes drive from the Lodge.

Honeymoon Bay Walk: Is well worth the short stroll at the far end of the property. It is the perfect place to enjoy the sunrise or sunset.

Oyster Bay Tour – Welcome to Great Oyster Bay, home to some of the juiciest and most delicious seafood in Australia.
Located on Freycinet peninsula, along the spectacular Great Eastern Drive, our pristine waters, fresh air and the abundance of sea life make for perfect oyster farming conditions.
Our head guide Declan is a real deal oyster farmer down at Freycinet Marine Farm, working along side the wonderful Giles & Julia Fisher to produce high quality pacific oysters and mussels, delivered straight from the farm to the shop.
It doesn’t get any fresher than eating oysters straight out of the ocean. Pop on some waders, wade out into the waters, harvest oysters straight off the rack, and enjoy our authentic oyster farm tasting experience

Freycinet Lodge to Launceston

Another early start to the day to see as much or as little you like on your way to Launceston.

This Freycinet to Launceston self drive itinerary goes from the east coast, over the elephant Pass, down the Fingal Valley and into Launceston through the historic village of Evandale.This itinerary is designed to explore off the beaten track to take the scenic and historic route into Launceston.

It is about 3 hours drive point to point, but if you allow time to look around at different stops it will take all day.

This route from Freycinet to Launceston runs up the coast to Bicheno and beyond, but cuts inland at the Elephant Pass to St Marys.

You will drive up the Fingal Valley, and then cut off through the backroads to Evandale and on to Launceston.

Bicheno
From Coles Bay, at the gates of the Freycinet National Park, follow the Coles Bay Road back past the Friendly Beaches to join the A3 Tasman Highway just to the north of Apslawn.

Turn right onto the A3 Tasman Highway and follow it north and into Bicheno. James Ebeneezer Bicheno was the British Colonial Secretary for Van Diemen’s Land 1843-51, and it was after him that the town was named.
Bicheno is a fishing and holiday town. As you drive into town, watch for the turnoff to the right that will take you along the waterfront with some very interesting coastal rock formations and the chance to scramble out right to the water’s edge. The clarity of the water is amazing. This road will bring you back to the township.

The Bicheno Hotel is on your left as you drive north, and there are a number of shops and a supermarket on the right just before the hotel should you require supplies for a picnic later in the day.

Douglas Apsley National Park
As you leave Bicheno heading north, watch for the turnoff inland to the left to the Douglas Apsley National Park and the Apsley Conservation Area.

This little known national park is a place of surprising contrasts and offers a wide range of diverse scenery in a compact area. It is one of the few east coast parks that conserves a full range of the dry sclerophyll forest plants that are part of the Tasmanian east coast ecology. It offers picnics by a stream, forest and gorge walks and the chance to study rare plants and animals if interested. Continue north along the coast on the A3 Tasman Hwy.

Elephant Pass and Fingal Valley
Featured Stops |Elephant Pass | Fingal Valley | Clarendon House |
At Chain of Lagoons, watch for the turnoff inland (left) onto the A4 road that climbs over the Elephant Pass before running back to join the A4 Esk Highway at St. Marys. St. Marys is an old mining town, and evidence can still be seen of the coal mines.
Yes, it is well worth stopping at Mount Elephant Pancakes, on the left at the top of the Elephant Pass.
Follow the A4 Esk Highway through this very picturesque valley and into Fingal.
The origins of the name of the Fingal Valley lie in Ireland, and the Talbot Family, Barons of Malahyde, have owned Malahyde Estate in the valley since 1824.
The road follows the banks of the South Esk River (the one that joins the Tamar Estuary at Launceston) to rejoin the A1 Midland Highway at Conara Junction. Turn north (right) onto the A1.
After just a few minutes, watch for the turnoff to the right (east) that takes you on the backroad to Nile, Clarendon House and Evandale.
Turn off onto the C416 and wind through open farmland and light forest before crossing the South Esk River, zig-zagging a bit and then turning hard left to run northwards towards Nile and Evandale.
Just past Nile, watch for the turnoff to the left onto Clarendon Road and follow it to Clarendon House.

This beautifully restored, colonial mansion is reminiscent of the country gentry lifestyle of the mid-1800’s. Set in 7 hectares and on the banks of the South Esk River, Clarendon House was established by one James Cox.
The house is a part of the National Trust and has parks and outbuildings to be explored.
Launceston during the 1800’s quickly became the centre of a fertile, productive farming area spreading south as far as Ross, west as far as Deloraine and backing up against the rugged Western Tiers of the Tasmanian Central Plateau.
This is an area of rich farmland with a backdrop of pure wilderness. Migrants from England, hoping to find a better life in Tasmania, did so with gusto, creating some of the finest homes and estates in Australia. Clarendon House is one of these.

Evandale
Featured Stops | Evandale | Launceston
From Clarendon House, follow the C416 into Evandale. This itinerary has been following the South Esk River on its way to Launceston, and Evandale sits on the South Esk some 18 Kms south of the city.
Evandale is classified as an historic town, and is famous for its Sunday Morning market as well as the annual World Penny Farthing Races which are held in February.
Evandale was originally settled in 1811 and has been well maintained, with many of its original buildings still part of the landscape.

Launceston
From Evandale, stay on the B41 through Western Junction and past the Launceston Airport until it joins the A1 Midlands Highway at Breadalbane, and then follow the A1 into Launceston.

Accommodation: Peppers Seaport Hotel – 1 Night in City View Studio

Launceston to Stanley

Launceston to Stanley self drive itinerary runs through farmland and history at Longford and Deloraine, then follows the coast all the way out to Stanley in the far northwest of Tasmania. This is an interesting day itinerary taking in cut offs and unusual features. You can spend the whole day looking around at the stops.

To drive point to point without stopping will take about 3 hours.

While you can drive to Stanley from Launceston in about 3 hours, it is a very pleasant day drive between overnight stops.
This itinerary will meander through some wonderful farming areas and historic towns, before taking the coast road through Ulverstone and Penguin and on out to Stanley.

Launceston to Brickendon Farm Estate and Woolmers Estate
Featured stops | Woolmers Estate | Brickendon |
From Launceston, take Hwy#1 Midland Highway south to Bredalbane, and instead of going to the Launceston Airport, stay on Hwy#1 Midlands Highway through Perth and continue on towards Hobart.
Watch for the C520 Woolmers Lane on the right, and turn west and drive across the very attractive farmland to Woolmers Estate.
As the road passes some woodland and then starts to curve down to the Macquarie River, watch for the turnoff to Woolmers Estate on the right.
Set high above the Macquarie River, Woolmers Estate was first established in the 1820’s. The buildings have all been restored and the whole Estate gives a very good feel for the history, farming and lifestyle of the area.

Longford to Deloraine
Featured stops | Longford | Hagley | Westbury | Pearn’s Steam World | Deloraine | Ashgrove Cheese Outlet |

Leaving Longford, turn left onto the B52 Illawarra Road and then turn left onto Hwy#1 Bass Highway.
Watch for the turnoff to the right onto the B54 and after leaving Hwy#1, turn hard left onto the old road that is the main street of Hagley.
The road runs back under Hwy#1, and then comes to Westbury.
These old villages were established in the early 1800’s and you can get a very good feel for the lifestyle of the area.
Pearn’s Steam World
Pearn’s Steam World, on the right as you drive through Westbury, is worth a visit by those interested in old steam driven machinery.
This is widely regarded as the finest collection of steam driven machinery in the Southern Hemisphere.
The park on the left just before the road dips down across the river is an interesting stop. Rather than return to Hwy#1 Bass Highway, stay on the B54 Meander Valley Road as it winds its way into Deloraine.
Cross the Meander River at Deloraine (perhaps stop at the Riverside Park for a few minutes) and climb the hill through this rather pretty, historic township.
Stay on the main street, There is a full supermarket on the left as you come up Emu Bay road is you need supplies.
Stay on Emu Bay Road, until it joins Hwy#1, the Bass Highway and continue on towards Devonport and Burnie.

Return to the Bass Highway and head for Burnie.

Penguin
Featured Stops | Penguin |

At Ulverstone, leave the Bass Highway and drive through the township on Main Street, cross the river and then turn right to West Ulverstone and follow the Bass Strait frontage road (now called Penguin Road) along the shores of Bass Strait to Penguin.
At Penguin, stay on the Old Bass Highway road as it winds along the coast before rejoining Hwy#1 Bass Highway at Sulphur Creek.
This is a well worthwhile diversion from the more direct, but far less scenic Hwy#1 Bass Highway route that bypasses Penguin.

Burnie to Stanley
Featured Stops | Lactos Cheese Factory | Burnie | Table Cape | Port Latta | The Nut and Stanley
Hwy#1 Bass Highway will now follow the coast into Burnie. Stay on Hwy#1 through Burnie and out to Stanley.
The countryside varies between farmland (note the colour of the earth out here – an incredible brown) and forests that stretch inland to the hills.
As you come along the coast, you will see The Nut dominating the horizon ahead and to the right.
The Nut is the backdrop to Stanley. Turn off onto the B21 and follow it out to the Nut and the old whaling and fishing township of Stanley.

Stanley to Dip Falls
Featured stops | Dip Falls Forest Reserve | the Big Tree | Mawbanna
Leave Stanley by turning left onto the A2 Bass Highway and drive towards Burnie. Just after you pass Black River, watch for a turnoff on the right (inland) that takes you to Mawbanna and the Dip Falls Forest Reserve.

Dip Falls to Hellyer Gorge Reserve
Featured stops | Dip Falls Forest Reserve | the Big Tree | Mawbanna | Yolla | Hellyer Gorge Reserve
There is an unmanned information booth at the parking area at the Falls, and it is just a short walk over the road bridge to the viewing platform.

The view is breathtaking, and Dip Falls are spectacular, especially after a heavy rain.
The water crashes over hexagonal basalt columns, formed by cooling volcanic rock – at times the water seems to bounce from column to column, making this one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Tasmania.
From the parking area, a path also leads to the base of the falls. It is quite a scramble through the bush, but the view looking back and upwards gives the walk a huge payoff.
The Big Tree is another kilometre further on and provides a chance to get up close to this 62 Meter (203 ft) tall Eucalyptus.
Take a walk around the 17 Meter (55 ft) base of the tree on the well maintained boardwalk and feel the quiet of the Tasmanian bush.
After time at Dip Falls, retrace your steps to the Mawbanna Road and turn right.
The road will become Newhaven Road and wind its way through forests with the occasional cleared area for cattle before it T-joins the Montumana Road looking over the Montumana farming area.
Turn right onto Montumana Road and follow it a short distance to the A2 Bass Highway. Turn right (east) onto the A2 Bass Highway.
As the A2 Bass Highway bypasses Wynyard, watch for the turnoff to the right (inland) that will take you to the B26 road to Yolla.

After crossing the B23 / B18 junction, stay on the A10 Murchison Highway and watch for the turnoff to the left (east) onto the C132 Belvoir Road to Cradle Mountain.
At Middlesex, watch for the turnoff to the right as a branch of the C132 heads into Cradle Mountain National Park and Dove Lake.

Accommodation: Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge – 2 Nights – Pencil Pine Cabin – including breakfast.

Cradle Mountain

Day at leisure to explore the area.

The lodge is nestled in the woodlands of Cradle Mountain and provides the perfect base for exploring the wilderness of St Claire National Park and Cradle Mountain Lake. Rooms have a rich colour palette, cosy fireplace and housekeeping daily. You will be in close proximity to great walking tracks. Boardwalks connect to the main lodge and are also a popular thoroughfare with the native wildlife, providing delightful and unexpected animal sightings.

Cradle Mountain to Strahan

This Cradle Mountain to Strahan self drive itinerary runs across the Alpine Plateau, drives through old mining towns, then drops down to the wild west coast at Strahan. It is only in the last 50 years or so that the main roads came to this part of Tasmania. You will be driving through landscapes almost untouched by modern civilisation.

While you can drive it in about 3 hours without stopping, taking a full day and poking around in the back blocks of the small towns makes for a good time of it.
This will give you a good appreciation for the early settlers who braved the weather of Tasmania’s west coast to mine for silver, lead and zinc in really harsh conditions.

Alpine Plateau
Featured stops | Alpine Plateau |

As you drive away from Cradle Mountain and turn west onto the C132 you will cross open moorland. The wind hardly ever stops blowing across this open patch of ground.
The weather up here can change rapidly, and the stunted trees and heather can be covered with snow at almost any time of year.
The C132 will join the A10 Murchison Highway, the main route up and down the northwest. Turn left (south) onto the A10.

Tullah and Rosebery
Featured stops | Tullah | Rosebery |

Drive south on the A10 to Tullah. The story of Tullah is the story of mining and an old, narrow gauge railway. In the 1890’s, the Wee Georgie Wood engine and its companions ran services on the narrow rails through the bush around Tullah.
Much of the original track is under the waters of Lake Rosebery these days, though part of the line has been restored, along with the Wee Georgie Wood Railway Station.
Further south is Rosebery. It was the discovery of gold in 1893 that started mining in the Rosebery area. The mineral most prevalent in the area was zinc, but it was not until 1926 that a commercially viable method of extraction was developed.
After a checkered career, the Rosebery Mine became part of the Electrolytic Zinc Company of Australia (EZ) and has been in operation ever since. As you drive through the town you will see the aerial cable railway that transports the ore from the mine to the shipping point.
Today the mine is operated by the Minerals and Metals Group Ltd (MMG) and mines zinc, gold, lead, copper and silver.

Zeehan & Museum
Featured Stops | Zeehan |

Continue south on the A10 Murchison Highway. Watch for the turn off to the right (west) onto the B27 road to Zeehan.
Zeehan sports one of the oldest names in Tasmania. When Able Tasman first discovered the west coast of Tasmania in 1642, his ships were the Heemskirk and the Zeehan.
When the township was established in 1892 (over 200 years later), it was named after one of Abel Tasman’s ships.
The West Coast Heritage Centre on Main Street in Zeehan is well worth a look. It includes the original buildings, including the old Gaiety Theatre, and will give you a good feel for the early pioneers and the development of the west coast.

West Coast
Featured Stops | West Coast Pioneers Museum | Heemskirk Road Coastal Plain | Wild West Coast Beaches |

The B27 road will head downhill after Zeehan, and offers expansive views out over the coastline. There are a number of turnouts for parking behind the sand dunes.
It well worth crossing the dunes to walk on Ocean Beach. This wild beach is where the “Roaring 40s” prevailing winds first hit land after thousands of kilometres of open ocean.

Strahan
Featured Stops | Strahan Township and Macquarie Harbour

Strahan is set at the head of Macquarie Harbour, and is one of the few sheltered harbours on the west coast that can be reached by road.

Accommodation: Strahan Village – 3 Nights – Village Cottage Room – including breakfast.

Strahan

The fishing port of Strahan is the gateway to the stunning World Heritage Areas Tasmania is known for. From your base at Strahan Village, the best of the region’s experiences are easily accessible.

Strahan to Tarraleah

3 Hours

Today’s drive is a winding journey from the windswept coastline toward the agricultural heart of the west. First stop is Queenstown, another fine example of a town once reliant upon mining (the world’s richest, in fact) that has creatively reinvented itself. The landscape is dramatic and moon-like, and its streets are filled with historic buildings. The West Coast Wilderness Railway departs from here on a journey deep into the wild west coast, telling tales of deception and resilience along the way.

Wind along the banks of expansive Lake Burbury as you head towards Derwent Bridge, the gateway to the southern end of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Lake St Clair is Australia’s deepest lake, which you can explore on foot or by ferry.

End your day at Tarraleah Estate – once a town for the workers who developed Tasmania’s pioneering hydroelectric scheme. Its cottages, houses and lodge have been converted into accommodation.

Accommodation: Tarraleah Estate – 1 Night – Studio Room

Tarraleah to Hobart

Heading back towards Hobart, the roadside scenery graduates from wilderness to agricultural land, passing through small historic towns like Ouse and Hamilton. Take the turn off to Mt Field National Park, Tasmania’s first national park.

It’s an accessible 20-minute walk through towering swamp gums, ferns and cool temperate rainforest to Russell Falls, a magnificent cascading waterfall. In autumn you can witness the spectacular ‘Turning of the Fagus’, when the endemic fagus plant changes from green to shades of red and gold.

Charming roadside stalls abound here, so keep an eye out for cherries, honey and vegetables, and stop by Westerway Raspberry Farm. Try the local hop at Two Metre Tall Brewery.

New Norfolk is Tasmania’s third oldest city, established when early settlers were evacuated from Norfolk Island to Tasmania in the early 1800s. It’s now the heart of the Derwent Valley, surrounded by lush agricultural land. The hops from here supply most breweries in Australia. Explore its antique and bric-a-brac stores, and Tasmania’s oldest church, the Anglican Church of St Matthew.

Willow Court is Tasmania’s oldest mental asylum, now home to two-hatted restaurant The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery. On the journey back to Hobart, stop at Stefano Lubiana Wines. If you have room, lunch in the Osteria and taste the biodynamic cool climate wine.

Accommodation: Macq 01 – 3 Nights – Superior Room including breakfast

Nestled in the heart of the historic Hobart waterfront, MACq 01 is a luxury storytelling hotel that combines premium accommodation with immersive, unforgettable storytelling.
