From unwinding on the beach and taking in the vast expanse of the ocean to hiking to a world-famous lookout, there are plenty of things to do in Wineglass Bay. As it is located within the Freycinet National Park, which is an outcrop of ecosystem, you can meet various wildlife species, including wallabies, kangaroos, and a variety of bird species.

Beyond hiking, the bay offers opportunities for rock climbing, sea kayaking, and snorkeling. Adventurous travelers can explore the rugged coastline, hidden coves, and offshore islands.
