Days 3- 4
Binalong Bay > Freycinet Peninsula
Drive back through St Helens to Scamander at the top end of the Surf Coast. With reliable swells here year-round, this is the perfect spot to paddle out and catch some waves. Another location enjoyed by pros and grommets alike is Bicheno, a seaside hamlet that’s likely to trigger memories of carefree childhood summers by the beach. Quench your thirst at the family-friendly BrewHaus Café & Bar in Four Mile Creek. Use Bicheno as a base to explore the hiking trails and waterfalls of Douglas-Apsley National Park, before heading to the spectacular Freycinet Peninsula. If you’re peckish don’t miss the Freycinet Marine Farm, which has some of the freshest seafood you’re likely to ever taste. Join a sea kayaking tour around Coles Bay or hike across the Hazards Range to the dreamy Wineglass Bay, voted by Frommers as one of the 10 best beaches in the world. Make the most of the scenery by staying in a cabin at the eco-friendly Freycinet Lodge.
