Sleepy Bay & Little Gravelly Beach, Freycinet National Park – Tasmania
Just past the wonderful Freycinet Lodge, you will see a sign to the left for Sleepy Bay and Cape Tourville – Lighthouse.
Once you have parked in the carpark, it is a quick and easy 10-minute walk down to the lookout of Sleepy Bay, which has been known for its rough seas!
Once you’ve relaxed and enjoyed the views of Sleepy Bay, you can take a 30-minute return walk down to Little Gravelly Beach.
We spent probably about an hour down on the beach, enjoying the rocky landscape and exploring every part of the beach.
The walk down to the beach has a few steep sections but is still a fairly easy walk and most definitely worth it.
We were virtually the only people down on the beach and it was so peaceful.
