Sunday drive – a day trip from Hobart up Tasmania’s East Coast to Coles Bay and the stunning pink-hued granite peaks of the Hazards mountains in Freycinet National Park.
To really soak up and explore this area, it is best to spend at least a night here as there are some splendid long walks to enjoy. Due to work commitments, this trip was as much about the journey, as the destination.
We enjoyed a counter-meal at the Iluka Tavern before a couple of short walks to stretch our legs.
My type of sand – big chunky grains of granite and quartz!
We then walked on another track that took us around Cape Tourville Lighthouse, a beautiful day but very windy. In the image below, Wineglass Bay can be seen in the distance.
We then treated ourselves at The Ice Creamery Coles Bay before a leisurely 220km drive home 😛
