Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Freycinet
(4.8/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Easy walk to the viewing platforms and to the lighthouse. So glad we decided to do this walk. The views are just breathtaking! 
  • If you already went to Coles Bay, it is worthwhile to deviate a few minutes to see the view from the lighthouse. Access is fast and easy. It is also well conditioned for all walkers. The views are spectacular and insurance will have good photos.

  • We wanted an easy walk for a change and this is definitely worth a visit. It is relatively level and there is a boardwalk for the ocean side segment of the walk
