To see the Wineglass Bay from above, take a scenic drive up to Cape Tourville Lighthouse. The short drive takes only a few minutes and winds through the Freycinet National Park, with several lookouts offering views of the Sleepy Bay and the clear blue waters of the Tasman Sea. This unmanned lighthouse was built in 1971 to replace an older and nearly inaccessible lighthouse located on the nearby Lemon Rock. Don’t forget to bring your camera, a light picnic, and plenty of water. Keep an eye out for whales, which many visitors report seeing in the bay, and remember that in order to access this lighthouse you do need to purchase a 24-hour park entry pass.

  • Amazing views from every angle. It is an easy walk to the lookout, but with amazing views as you progress up a relatively gentle slop. Good information boards to help explain what you are seeing...

  • This is one of the few places in Freycinet that you can walk to in a short amount of time. Nice views as you walk around the cape & the short walk up the stairs to the lighthouse was worth it too.
