Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Freycinet

(4.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Cape Tourville Lighthouse into our Coles Bay vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Coles Bay.

  • This track to the lighthouse can be easily missed so make sure you get there. A fabulous, easy boardwalk takes you from the car park up to the lighthouse for amazing views. Don't miss it!  more »
  • There is a wheelchair accessible walk on a boardwalk but a little uphill. Great views in every direction and looks back to Wineglass Bay. Well worth a look. Not a lot of carpark space.  more »
  • Short drive from the Visitor centre and worth the trip. Views from the lookout point are awesome and the path is very easy to walk  more »
