One of the most photographed locations in Tasmania – WIneglass Bay

September 22, 2019

Saturday morning came up clear and blue so we headed for the car park at the Wineglass Bay walking track. Listed as a 1 to 1.5-hour return walk, in the end, was about right as going up is a continuous climb with a formed path and many stone steps and coming back down, partly by a different route is quite easy going with fewer steps to descend and a more sloping pathway.

The walk starts off at a gentle climb from the car park and soon starts to gain altitude as you get to the first sections of stone steps and start to get views of Coles Bay below before you reach the saddle and cross to the Eastern side. 

The first views of outer Coles Bay and then the whole area appear as you climb towards the saddle via an intermediate lookout point.

A final section of steps takes you over the last corner and reveals the stunning views below:


The path back down is a little different and gives a different perspective of the area finally rejoining the upward path at the info point.  Meeting us in the car park was a very people friendly Wallaby with a Joey in her pouch
