Starting from the car park at the end of Cape Tourville Road, Freycinet National Park, this walk takes you around the Cape Tourville Lighthouse. Experience breathtaking coastal views on this quick and easy loop that runs along the clifftops on the easternmost cape of Freycinet. The track is a mix of wooden boardwalk and compacted earth with metal safety railings, and is suitable for wheelchairs and prams. On your way around the lighthouse, you'll pass several lookouts with excellent views of the southern Freycinet Peninsula, Wineglass Bay and the Hazard Mountains, and find signs detailing the area's history, landmarks and wildlife. There's also a pair of fixed binoculars at the viewpoint for The Nuggets, a small cluster of rock islands where seals can be spotted basking in the sun. Keep an eye out for whales and dolphins, which are frequently spotted in the waters below the cape. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
