Rock formations at Sleepy Bay beach, Tasmania. That’s my hubby in the shot, he’s 6ft tall, so you can see how big the rocks are.
Drive to the signposted turnoff to the left, just past Freycinet Lodge. Stop at the carpark at Sleepy Bay. Gently graded steps lead to the rocky shoreline of Sleepy Bay which, despite its name, often experiences wild and rough seas.
From the carpark above Sleepy Bay gently graded steps lead to a rocky shoreline, which despite its name, often experiences wild and rough seas. Only a 10 minute walk down a steep hill to reach the shoreline.
Some of Freycinet’s more remote and beautiful areas can be visited by taking a long day or overnight walk. Contact the park office for advice about the availability of water, the condition of tracks and any special equipment that may be needed. The Freycinet National Park map and notes is useful for all the longer walks in the park.
