Tassie Day 10 – Bicheno to Coles Bay (Freycinet National Park) 

Another beautiful day on Tasmania’s East Coast, we had some of the coasts most iconic activities planned for the day so it was time to get up and begin. 

Seeing as we were in Bicheno it only made sense to make our first stop the Bicheno blow hole which is right where the town is and pretty cool. Especially the orange rocks that seem to be a bit of a thing around this area. 

Erin and I had seen pictures of this cute little winery a little further south. We both don’t drink wine but the building was suppose to have a great view and looked kind of funky so we thought we’d take a look. Devils Corner was a vineyard, tasting cellar, lookout, coffee/snacks stop and it even had a seafood takeaway where I got a dozen oysters for $22. Great little place, really nice view and buildings. 

After Devil’s Corner we had plans to spend the next couple hours in Freycinet National Park which was a little further south. Once at Freycinet National Park we did short walks to Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville and Wineglass Bay lookout which are all beautiful walks. After our walks we had a quick bite to each at Freycinet Lodge before spending a little time at Honeymoons Bay.  

Seeing as the whole area is national park and we were only able to scratch the surface in one day of bush walking we decided it might be a good idea to take a scenic flight. Freycinet Air located just near Friendly Beaches does a 30 minute scenic flight for $130pp over the whole area. The plane fit 3 passengers and the pilot and other staff were all very friendly. The flight itself was beautiful, the beaches, mountains and scenery was really nice and I thought it was worth the look. 

After our flight we headed to our home for the night at the Coles Bay YHA where we were sharing a dorm with 2 other girls. Great little YHA I thought. We made a few friends and lazed around until it was finally time for bed.
