Freycinet Experience - A Trail Running Tour

by Dave Lennon 27 Mar 2024

Recently we held a Find Your Feet Trail running Tour in collaboration with Freycinet Experience guided walks. This is how it looked... 

Day 1 

After the drive to the Freycinet Peninsula, we had lunch at Coles Bay before running through to our private accommodation for the night!

An excited bunch of Trail Runners ready to hit the Tasmanian trails!

Trail Guide Brodie Nankervis led guests through some beautiful trails to South Friendly Beach.

Beach swims are a must on a day like this.

After drying off, we began the final stretch on the beach to see our hidden beachside accommodation for the first time and settle in!


An early start saw us eating overnight oats and croissants before getting a bus back to Coles Bay and taking a boat to the magnificent Schouten Island where we got the chance to take a little hike up Bear Hill for a vantage point looking back at the Freycinet Peninsula.

Land A'hoy!

After conquering Bear Hill, we hopped back on the boat and were taken to Bryan's Beach. From here, half the group headed up and over Mount Graham, and the rest of the group travelled along the Coastal Trail.

On day 3, we had a leisurely morning sleep-in followed by a big breakfast. After letting our breakfast sit, we headed out on a secret trail from the lodge, running along high sea cliffs, through to Blue Stone Bay and Cape Tourville!

We enjoyed an amazing lunch back at the lodge prepared by lodge hosts when we returned after our run!



On our final day, some of us decided to go down and catch an amazing sunrise and swim before heading back to Hobart on the bus!
