Wineglass Bay Lookout, Coles Bay

(4.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. For Wineglass Bay Lookout and beyond, use our Coles Bay family vacation planner to get the most from your Coles Bay vacation.

  • If you come from the seaside areas in Australia, wineglass lookout does not make you crazy. It is just a beach after all. The walk is also average.  more »
  • The Walk from visitor centre we found was not difficult although an element of fitness is required,is worth it once you get there.  more »
  • Defiantly worth the shortish walk but please don't feed the wallabies (sorry but apparently people can't read signs... PLEASE take note of this..... or wildlife will die!)  more »
