Trip highlights


  • Kayaking to and exploring the inaccessible eastern coastline
  • Enjoying the delicious local food and wine
  • Hiking Mt Freycinet, the highest point on the peninsula
  • Camping in stunning beach locations

The Freycinet Peninsula, located on Tasmania’s east coast, is one of Australia’s most iconic national parks. The Freycinet Peninsula is a paddler’s dream with turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, orange boulders lining the shores and mountains of granite rising from the sea. The scenery is truly spectacular. The park boasts some 49 endemic Tasmanian species of animals including echidnas, wombats, wallabies and potoroos. The ocean is rich in marine life, including Australian Fur seals, dolphins and, on a seasonal basis, several species of whales. This trip includes paddling to Schouten Island, exploring the inaccessible eastern coastline and a hike to Mt Freycinet, the highest point on the Peninsula. Join us on this six day adventure as we paddle, hike and camp in one of Australia’s most amazing coastal environments.


We start the trip with a morning pick up (around 8am) from your Hobart accommodation for the two and a half hour drive to Freycinet National Park. We pack the kayaks and prior to launching, your guides will run through a full kayak safety briefing. Today’s destination is Hazards Beach, a long beautiful beach that runs along Freycinet Peninsula’s west coast. We set up camp and enjoy our first night under the stars. Paddling distance approximately 11 kms.

Meals:  L,D

After a hearty breakfast prepared by the guides, we break camp, pack the kayaks and paddle to Cooks Beach campsite. The campsite is located at the southern end of the 1km-long Cooks Beach, set among dense coastal scrub and alive with birdlife. After setting up camp, we intend to hike to the summit of Mt Graham or Mt Freycinet (12-14 km return with some steep sections) to enjoy excellent views. The hike is optional and those who prefer not to participate are able to stay at the camp and enjoy some beach walking. Paddling distance is approximately 12-15 kms.

Meals:  B,L,D

An early start for the paddle across the Schouten passage to Schouten Island (before the winds get up for the day). After landing, we take a break before either paddling round the outside of the island or, if winds forbid, swapping paddles for hiking shoes to summit the 400m Schouten Island Bare Hill. Paddling distance is 11 kms.

Meals:  B,L,D

Weather permitting, we paddle the outside coast of the Freycinet Peninsula to Wineglass Bay, an opportunity to make a unique approach to an iconic and stunning location. Overnight Wineglass Bay. Paddling distance is approximately 18 kms.

Meals:  B,L,D

We set off early to paddle the northern section of the Freycinet Peninsula. We make a stop at Sleepy Bay before paddling to Friendly Beaches, our last campground for the trip. Paddling distance is 18 kms.

We have a relaxing morning planned with a paddle and walk along the Friendly Beaches coastline. We’ll be picked up after lunch and shuttled back to Hobart, with a drop off at your Hobart accommodation at around 5-6pm. Paddling distance is 8 kms
