What is there to do?

Kids, do you want to spend the day with your family running along the white sandy beaches, or perhaps you want to try and spot some of the wildlife hiding in the Australian bush?

Freycinet National Park is a great place to go if you're in Tasmania for a true nature-based experience.  

There are a ton of activities that will keep the whole family entertained, no matter what the age! Grab those walking shoes and head along the trails to Wineglass Bay, or just take a walk along the beach. If you're really adventurous there is a three day walk right across the length of the Freycinet Peninsula! 

Little bit too hot (well, it is Australia!) - grab those swimmers and head on down to the water and enjoy some swimming. If you're in Sleepy Bay, it's a great place for snorkelling or diving, checking out all the incredible marine life in the area! If you have kids that are new to the ocean or snorkelling, Honeymoon Bay is a better place for them to start as it's sheltered.

They will also love the rock pools at both those bays, as well as at Ranger Creek. Just remind them to not disturb the little sea creatures that live in the rock pools are they are very fragile and they are comfortable in their homes! 

If you want to keep your feet dry, there are plenty of places to try and spot the rest of the wildlife that calls the Freycinet National Park home. 

The visitor centre in the park is a great place to start, as it introduces the cultural and natural heritage of the region through creative displays that kids will easily understand, and hopefully encourage them to ask questions about what they are about to see. 

If you fancy extending your day out, they also offer camping in the summer month however it's such a popular activity they work out of a ballot system. Good luck!

Don't forget if you have your car there are some lovely drives too!

Any top tips?

Camping is extremely popular over the summer months and at Easter. Due to the high demand for campsites, a ballot system operates from the 18th December until the 10th February and for Easter each year. The ballot is drawn early August with successful applicants being notified by mail. This does mean you have to plan ahead. Good luck!
