Lunch break: Fast food / Local restaurants / Self prepared meals. Recommended: Rock Lobster at Lobster Shack, Bicheno, or a wide range of seafoods at Freycinet Marine Farm.

Coles Bay: One of the most beautiful bays in Tasmania, stunning, sheer pink granite mountains overlooking the calm, crystal clear water of Oyster Bay.

Wineglass Bay Lookout: The crystal-clear waters and white sandy beach of Wineglass Bay are a tremendous sight. This is a steep uphill walk on a rocky, well-constructed track within the Freycinet National Park.

The Cape Tourville: An easy 600-meter long trail loops around this promontory on the peninsula’s east coast, crossing 100-meter tall granite bluffs to reach the Cape Tourville Lighthouse, a naval beacon on the point.

Honeymoon Bay is a small sheltered bay to spend a day by the beach, snorkel and paddle in the sea.

Freycinet Marine Farm: Taste some of Tasmania's best fresh seafood – enjoyed fresh on deck or taken away. Oysters and mussels harvested fresh from the farm daily, scallops, abalone, sea urchin and salmon sourced from local fisherman.

Bicheno Penguin Tour (Optional): A penguin tour is the best way to see penguins up close and safely without disturbing them or hurting yourself!
