By October 4, 2020May 21st, 20226,784 Comments

The Wineglass Bay is located on a peninsula composed of pink granite hills, consisting of pristine white sand and turquoise water.

Kayaking around the bay and its pristine waters is an excellent activity choice. Other options are:

  • taking a cruise around the whole peninsula
  • going off-road through the adjacent national park
  • the relaxing way of chilling at the beach, maybe with a book, enjoying the sea, the sun and marvelous scenery.


Taking a hike to the Wineglass Bay Lookout can give one a perfect view of the beach. Or if that is not enough, a plane or helicopter tour can deliver more than that.

Not even a two-hour drive away is Hobart with the Hobart International Airport. From there tourists can go to the Wineglass Bay by car.
