The Freycinet Peninsula, halfway down Tasmania's east coast, is one of Tasmania's most popular national parks. Its pristine white sand beaches, pink granite mountains and and inviting waters never fail to entice its visitors. The highlight of this 17,000 hectare national park is the beautiful Wineglass Bay.



Opening Hours

Access to the park is 24 hours a day. The Freycinet National Park Visitor Centre is open from 8am - 5pm daily.




A Tasmanian national park pass is required to enter the Freycinet National Park. It can be purchased at the park's entrance or at one of the various Tasmanian Visitor Information Centres. Cost for a daily pass per vehicle is $22 (up to 8 people), or $11 per person. If you plan on visiting any of the other National Parks in Tasmania, then it may well be worth obtaining a Holiday Pass, which is valid for 8 weeks. A Holiday Pass is $56 per vehicle or $28 per person.[1]
