Wineglass Bay Lookout, Coles Bay

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Trail
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.

  • This lovely walk is a good workout. Know that it is quite steep in places-- my friend with bad knees couldn't get to the top. The way there is quite beautiful with interesting rock formations and love...  more »
  • The walk to the lookout is not difficult; the paths are well gravelled and the steps are not steep. We walked this 10 years ago with my parents who were in their late 70's and the track is even better...  more »
