Tasman Peninusla

Our next stop was Freycinet National Park. You need to buy a parks pass to enter all the National Parks in Tasmania but after that most of the campgrounds are free. Freycinet is billed as one of the big tourist attractions on the east coast with Coles Bay and Wineglass Bay being the biggest draws but for us the camping was a bit isolated after Bay of Fires and we hit Coles Bay under cloudy skies but that’s a good thing about campervans – if you don’t like it, move on. It was late when we arrived at Cape Hauy on the Tasman Peninsula National Park. The campground was 12km down a gravel track with just the basic amenities but the position was by a beautiful fringing sandy bay with steep rocky slopes covered in lush green bush right to the waters edge (just think of Robinson Crusoe).

The next day we did a 4 hour walk to Cape Hauy Point. At first it was very steep through lush thick bush and then broke out high up onto a thin strip of headland with steep cliffs either side and the views were breathtaking. It was a slightly strange feeling looking out to sea onto the edge of the world as we know it – next stop Antarctica. And at times the weather comes from Antarctica. This place is stuck way out in the southern ocean. You get excellent blue skies with temperatures in the low 20’s during the day but the nights can be very cold so it’s nights round the campfire.
