Wineglass to Wine Glass

When we were last in Tasmania we had the wonderful opportunity to take a Wineglass to Wine glass trek.

From the Freycinet Lodge we walk up the Hazard Mountains to the Wineglass bay lookout.  Here we took in spectacular views of the Freycinet Peninsula and the Tasman Sea.  Then we descended down into the bay, tracked across the isthmus to Hazards Beach and then partook in a rather sumptuous meal of local cheeses, fresh seafood , Tasmanian beef and quail, and just a few glasses of Tasmanian wine and beer.

Our trek begins

The trekkers are ready!  Including our “celebrity” pal (no longer) bachelor Jason Mesnick

After we leave the bay to cross the isthmus, we meet a Jill Wallaby with a Joey in the pouch – awesome!
