Wineglass Bay is one of the those famous Australian beaches. Like Whitehaven in Queensland and Cable Beach in Western Australia, it's a bit legendary. Wineglass Bay, along with many other stunning beaches, is located in Freycinet National Park, a couple of hours drive north of Hobart. A 30-minute uphill walk will greet you with a glimpse of the beach, where you can walk further down to it's white sands. Unfortunately we arrived late afternoon and didn't quite have enough to time to make the return trip to the beach and back before dark. We did, however, mange to complete a couple of smaller walks, before purchasing some locally farmed oysters to snack on while watching the sunset in Coles Bay, looking directly towards 'the Hazards' mountain range. The light and landscape was spectacular and made for on of those bliss moments where everything was just perfect.
next: along the east coast.
