Freycinet National Park

The imposing peaks of the iconic Hazards mountain range defines this revered wilderness. Founded as a natural park over a century ago, Freycinet is Tasmania’s oldest official explorer’s paradise, boasting 100 kilometres of protected terrain, glittering bays, wildflower fields and deep blue lagoons. A hike through the rugged Hazards cliffs leads to the smooth curve of Wineglass Bay, renowned as one of the world’s best beaches.

Friendly Beaches Freycinet Coast

Just half an hour’s drive from Piermont, the unspoilt wilderness of Friendly Beaches stretches 140 hectares out to the Tasman Sea. Pack a picnic lunch of seasonal produce from Homestead restaurant, and settle in with the local community of sea eagles, albatross, penguins, whales and fur seals.

The Freycinet coastline and further inland reveal a wilderness worth exploring. We encourage you to take the entire day to explore the area and retire back to your cottage with weary legs and a rejuvenated soul.

Coles Bay Seascape Walk

Less than an hour north-east of Piermont lies the idyllic seaside village of Coles Bay. Surrounded by calm beaches and sheltered by the Hazards mountain range, it’s a launchpad for a number of walking trails, and offers a number of excellent dining options.

Nestled discreetly amidst lush bushland, just a stone’s throw from the retreat, lies the tranquil Cowrie Beach trail. This meditative path leads you on a serene journey through gentle bushland curves, unveiling the vast expanse of moorlands and the secluded beauty of Cowrie Beach.
