Caravanning at Wineglass Bay – The Blackmores

< Inspiration / Category: Featured Bloggers / Tags: Tasmania Travel with Kids

As we travelled down the coast to our next stop, the well-known Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay and the base for the hike up to the Wineglass Bay lookout. The national park gives you access to all the amazing walks and beaches.

A couple of the must dos are the Wineglass Bay lookout walk, it’s about a 2 hour return trip (that is with young children of course, so depending on your ability you could get there quicker). You can also walk down to wineglass bay itself and rest up on the beach before heading back.

There is an alternative lookout at the top of Mt Amos which for those who are able would be incredible but unfortunately not possible for us with a 4 and 2 year old. There is a spectacular short walk up to the Cape Tourville lighthouse where the walk hugs the rugged coastline and allows for breathtaking views.

After two days in the Freycinet National Park we had a few days spare until we had to be back in Hobart to meet my sister and her family who were coming down to hire a caravan and spend Christmas with us.

With local advice, we headed to Cockle Creek which is a few ours south of Hobart and the southernmost point in Tasmania. Our camp was great right near the water however there was a cold front heading our way and with it brought strong winds, rain and small hail which the kids thought was snow!

After a couple of days in and out of the van when the weather would allow us, we headed back to Hobart to meet the Griffith’s.
