Great walks and experiences

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Jan 2019via mobile
Thank you to everyone at the Freycinet Experience Walk for a great 4 days of hiking. I was one of a small group for the four days but everyone’s needs were looked after. My specific need was gluten free food, I was impressed that if the other hikers were given raison toast or scones, I was given the gluten free version. We had two guides that took us out every day and we were able to split into two groups on one day to cater for different walking interests. The highlight for me was sitting on the beach of Wineglass Bay on the second day, it was truly breathtaking. Thank you for the lovely food, it was 5 class and the accommodation was comfy especially after a day of walking. It was nice to socialise with the guides and the cooks for dinner and before and after dinner too.

My wife, 12 year old son, and I did this walk in December 2018, and we absolutely loved it. True, it's very expensive, but -- beyond the cost -- it was an absolute gem of an experience, and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Friendly Beaches Lodge and its guided walks really are memorable experiences. The walks were at times challenging for my (very) mature body and dodgy knee, but you just take things at your own pace - no pressure from the lovely guides - and you have a wonderful sense of achievement at the end.
I thought the walks would be reasonably flat; but they are hilly with many boulders and stone steps, so I do suggest taking walking poles. The area is beautiful, unspoilt - totally remote from city life - but best of all are the Lodge staff. Our guides, Holly and Amy, and hosts/chefs Dan and Gemma, not only excelled at their jobs, but they were genuinely warm and welcoming - and fun. Guests felt like family.
Accommodation was very comfortable (shared bathrooms but other guests were lovely); food was plentiful and delicious, and yoga mats and rollers were ready with afternoon tea on our return each day's walk.
This experience is worth saving for.

We are a family of five who stayed in early December. Everything was just perfect. Admittedly blessed with great weather. The walks are challenging, but there are easier options if you choose. Great guides who clearly value the world we live in and love sharing its delights. The food was excellent. Satisfied the varied tastes of our family. I even came away with some recipes, which I very rarely do. Would strongly recommend to anyone looking to experience the wonderful wilderness with a decent dose of luxury to soothe the boned

Excellent. So pleased I made the decision to go on this walk and felt very rewarded after it.. Accommodation was very comfortable. Food was amazing. Staff very competent and extremely friendly. I was amazed by their knowledge on all the history, flora and fauna. Always keen to help and showed a genuine interest in all the travellers.

Room tip: All rooms were quiet and had a bush view

Choose the Premier Spa Cabin as they are very spacious and have great views over the secluded beach. They have a cute balcony to enjoy the wildlife and don't forget the spa experience. Great cabins, modern, King size bed and heaps of privacy.
Plenty of great walks of various difficulty are starting just outside the resort. Spend a romantic sunset to the left of the resort on the beach and you may be greeted by the friendly wallaby.

Room tip: Ask for water views
