Description 

Also known as "Coles Bay", these areas offer low-key sea-cliff climbing on some of Australia's best granite. These crags are popular among locals due to the scenic beauty, ease of access, and generally temperate weather conditions found here. Good camping is abundant, and excellent trails criss-cross this national park, leading to 5 star beaches and secluded coves.

Freycinet offers several distinct styles of climbing, from the easily accessible single pitch routes of Bluestone Bay, to the 250m multi-pitch routes of the Hazards, to day-long horizontal traverses, often soloed, above the Tasman Sea.

Getting There 

Freycinet Peninsula is a well-known National Park on the northern half of Tasmania's warmer, more 'civilized' East Coast. Paved roads lead into the park, and well maintained dirt roads lead to the more popular crags. Various amounts of hiking/bushwhacking will be required to reach various venues.
