Cape Tourville Lighthouse & Lookout, Freycinet National Park – Tasmania
Cape Tourville Lighthouse & Lookout offer some beautiful views. The walk is only 20 minutes to do the whole 600m circuit, so it is worth stopping in, even if you only have a short time to visit.
Some helpful information can be found on the Tasmania Parks Website.
- From Tasman Highway (A3) take road C302. Once inside Freycinet National Park, follow the main road, then turn left onto the Cape Tourville Road. (The 7km Cape Tourville road is unsealed but is suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles.) See map
- Park entry fees apply.
- Toilet, picnic and electric barbecue facilities 7.5km away at Ranger Creek and Honeymoon Bay.
- Level 1 The track is wide, with even surfaces and gently graded slopes. It may suit wheelchair users, who have someone to assist them, and walkers with strollers
- Supervise children, hazardous cliffs, stay within barriers
It is easy to get to, simply type in Cape Tourville Lighthouse into Google Maps and it will take you directly to the carpark at the base of the lighthouse. It is a lovely drive up, we were the only car heading in that direction!
For those not able to hike up to Wineglass Bay Lookout, this is a good alternative and definitely worth stopping into.
Here are a couple of pictures from our trip to the lighthouse.
