Freycinet Peninsula Kayak Expedition

6 Day Trip

six days kayaking with incredible hikes

The Freycinet Peninsula, located on Tasmania’s east coast, is one of Australia’s most iconic national parks. The scenery is spectacular, with clear turquoise water, white sandy beaches and secret coves, all framed by a craggy granite mountain range.

Some proposed highlights of the trip include paddling to Schouten Island, exploring the inaccessible eastern coastline and a hike to Mt Freycinet, the highest point on the Peninsula. Join us on this six day adventure as we paddle, hike and camp in one of Australia’s most amazing coastal environments.
