The Freycinet Peninsula is covered in the beautiful Freycinet National Park, which continues over onto Schouten Island. The park is made up of fantastic beaches, beautiful wildflowers, and plentiful wildlife.
At the entrance to the Freycinet Peninsula is Coles Bay and the fantastic hazard, which are 300 metre high, pink, granite outcrops. You can also find the Moulting Lagoon Game Reserve, which is home to black swans and wild ducks.
Further within the park are some truly magnificent walks. The longest would probably be the peninsula circuit which is a 27km walk, although you can also follow several shorter routes. A walk you must not miss is the 3-hour trek to the remarkable Wineglass Bay. If you have time for only one walk make it this one. However, whatever walk you follow you must make sure that you sign on and off at the booth in the carpark.
There are also plenty of adventure tours around the park, where you can get involved in activities such as abseiling, kayaking, rock climbing and other activities.
You can get petrol and supplies on the peninsula from the information centre and store, and the Iluka Holiday Centre. There are plenty of places to stay, including camping grounds, backpackers and lodges.
