It's a long drive from Hobart to the Freycinet Penninsula (2.5 hours each way), but it's worth it. Not only is the destination itself beautiful, but the views as one approaches are also spectacular. The guide is lovely and very knowledgeable about local history and geography, so that adds a lot. The hike to the lookout is uphill but easy (30 minutes); the extension to the beach itself adds a good workout. The beach was extremely windy the day we went - don't know if that's normal but made hanging out there hard. Wish they would add a stop at one of the many vineyards you pass en route!
