Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Freycinet

4.7
#7 of 18 in Things to do in Freycinet
To see the Wineglass Bay from above, take a scenic drive up to Cape Tourville Lighthouse. The short drive takes only a few minutes and winds through the Freycinet National Park, with several lookouts offering views of the Sleepy Bay and the clear blue waters of the Tasman Sea. This unmanned lighthouse was built in 1971 to replace an older and nearly inaccessible lighthouse located on the nearby Lemon Rock. Don’t forget to bring your camera, a light picnic, and plenty of water. Keep an eye out for whales, which many visitors report seeing in the bay, and remember that in order to access this lighthouse you do need to purchase a 24-hour park entry pass.

  • A much easier walk than Wineglass Bay Lookout and also wheelchair friendly. It also provides a different view of Wineglass Bay and Mt Freycinet. Some interesting interpretative signs along the way and a simple but effective demonstration of the size of different whale species. A small lighthouse at the top. This also one of Tasmania’s 60 Top Short Walk. All in all a great short walk.
  • The Cape Tourville Lighthouse is an unmanned, automatic lighthouse built in 1971 by private contractors.There is a short walk and beautifully made board walk. It's great spot for wale watching during the season. A magnificent view over the bay and great scenery.
  • Short walk (600m) to the lighthouse, not a fantastic tower but the scenery is nice. You will bump into some wallabys in the Carpark area.
  • Easy stroll along a planked track, suitable for anyone including kids. The views are beautiful. Definitely worth a stop
  • Really amazing views here! Better than Wineglass Bay I'd say. A simple, short walk, so not much fun for hiking.
