Enjoy four days of blissful immersion in nature with three nights of eco-luxury accommodation at the secluded Friendly Beaches Lodge. The walks – with all boat and vehicle transfers inclusive – reach deep into untouched regions of the exquisite Freycinet National Park, the untamed jewel of Tasmania’s East Coast, including the renowned Wineglass Bay.
Our beach-side eco lodge will be a highlight of your stay. Enjoy the best of nature immersion and adventure alongside comfort and dinning in style as you return from a day on the track to your private eco-luxury accommodation.
The lodge is yours alone to enjoy: sharing only with those members of your walking group, and is serviced by our on-site hosts - ready to cater to your every need! The eco-lodge is set in 130 acres of private property surrounded by the Freycinet National Park, is 100 metres from the beach (fall asleep to rolling waves), and is the only building along the entire span of Friendly Beaches: a truly pristine location.
Share locally sourced, lovingly prepared meals and regional wines in great company. Our menu includes fresh local flathead, local oysters, grain-fed beef and excellent fresh local produce and wines, expertly prepared by your two private hosts. Our hosts are passionate about working with seasonal produce and source ingredients in collaboration with locals - be sure to ask them about the produce on your experience!
