Friendly Beaches, Freycinet National Park – Tasmania
This place is called Friendly Beaches, but chances are you won’t see anyone to be friendly to! The only thing you’ll find here is a beautiful remote beach for you to enjoy.
In fact, the only reason we went to Friendly beaches, was because both the hotel reception as well as our pilot from our scenic flight told us to visit Friendly Beaches. The lookout on the maps is a bit deceiving though, you should absolutely drive past this a bit further down towards the camp site and wander around the beach down there.
Some helpful information can be found on the Tasmania Parks Website.
- 5 minutes to 5 hours depending on how long you feel like walking
- From highway A3, take road C302 and then the turn-off to the Friendly Beaches. See map
- Park entry fees apply.
- Bush toilets near car park
- Level 2
Let’s just say it was worth the walk! Again, we were virtually the only people there and it was a nice walk over the rocks enjoying the waves. On our way back to the car, we were entertained by the wildlife wandering around the camp site – it was pretty cool!
Here is a series of photos for you to enjoy. We particularly liked the storm rolling in!!
