Why Winter in Freycinet?

Friendly Beach - to our selves!

If you considering a mid year break, here are some fantastic reasons to consider a bit of Winter in Freycinet;
– The average day time temperature from June – September is around 14 or 15 degrees, very mild and great for walking
– The East Coast has far fewer rainy days in Winter, than Summer, or for that matter, anywhere else in the state.
– There are far fewer people on the walking tracks
– It’s completely possible to walk any of the beaches and have them entirely to yourself, if you’re brave enough, take a quick skinny dip, I guarantee you will feel more awake than you have all year!
– The Sunsets are magical this time of year, head over to Freycinet Lodge for a drink at the lounge bar and watch the sunset, warm and toasty near one of their huge open fire places.
– Activity bookings are more readily available, and you might catch a winter discount.
Freycinet Adventures and All4Adventures both operate year round.
– You are in with a chance to spot some whales. They visit the coast during the winter months, visitors include Southern Right, Humpback, Pilot and very occasionally Minky’s
– The wildlife is more adventurous with fewer people around, wallabies and possums venture regularly into yards and public spaces. You may also catch a gimpse of a quoll or pademelon.
– For photographers…. the light. You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout right? The Hazards in their Winter light are much more photogenic.
– Relax of an evening in warmth and comfort and quiet, no traffic noises during the off season, did I mention the quiet?
