Refuse disposal/collection and recycling
Please help by pre-sorting your rubbish before placing it in rubbish boxes and bins provided near the powered campsites. We recycle glass bottles and jars, aluminium cans and PET soft drink bottles. Please do not leave any rubbish where it will be accessible to wildlife.
Freycinet is a fuel stove preferred area as it is very dry and vulnerable to fire. No fires are allowed in the national park. Gas and fuel stoves may be used at all campsites except on days of Total Fire Ban. On days of Total Fire Ban, no naked flames of any sort, including gas and fuel stoves are allowed in the open. The electric barbecues provided at Ranger Creek and Honeymoon Bay picnic areas can be used for cooking on these days.
Taps are located: along the sand dune access road; at the Honeymoon Bay picnic; and on power poles at the powered campsites.
This is located just behind the Visitors Reception Centre and the entrance is sign posted off the main road. The nearest car parking area is the overflow carpark behind the visitors centre or at Ranger Creek, 200 metres away. The theatre is used for film and slide shows, for entertainment and as an activity meeting place during the summer period.
The theatre is available throughout the year for schools and other groups. Contact the Visitor Centre for further details.
Freycinet National Park offers visitors a range of wonderful opportunities to enjoy spectacular coastal scenery, colourful wildflowers and a variety of Tasmania's animal life
The 6.4 kilometre sealed road to Cape Tourville leaves from the main road just after the Freycinet Lodge. From the carpark, take the short, boardwalked track around the cliffline to the lighthouse. Along this fenced track are sweeping views along the coast.
The Friendly Beaches
Spectacular views and miles of unspoiled white sand beaches are the main features of The Friendly Beaches, which were added to the national park in 1992. The beaches can be reached via a signposted turnoff on the Coles Bay Road. We are upgrading facilities, which at present are only basic. Gravel roads lead to car parks overlooking the beaches at a couple of points. Some information signs point out interesting features and foot tracks lead to the beaches. Basic camping is permitted at Isaacs Point and Ridge Camp, though there is no fresh water. Isaacs Point also has pit toilets.
Ranger led activities
During summer, rangers offer a variety of activities such as walks, talks and slide shows for both adults and children. Besides being lots of fun these are a great way to learn about our national parks, wildlife and heritage.
Sleepy Bay is a great place for snorkelling and diving, while Honeymoon Bay is a good sheltered area suitable for beginners. Spectacular rockpools occur at both of these locations, as well as at Ranger Creek, and are well worth a look. Please don't disturb the sea creatures as they are fragile.
