National Park Freycinet is situated 125 km from Hobart on the same Peninsula, named after Louis de Freycinet, on the East coast of Tasmania. On the national Park border is a small village of Coles Bay, and a nearby town – Swansea. It was opened in 1916 and It is the oldest Park in Tasmania nowadays.
The Park consists of the coastline and closed the Bay Weinglass, whose beaches have been repeatedly included in the world’s best. Famous objects of the Park are the rock formations of pink and red granite, and stretching in a series of jagged peaks, dubbed “Danger.”
Among the Park citizens you will find various types of possums, flying squirrels, echidna, wombats, pygmy possums, Big rat, kangaroo rat and long-nosed potoroo. Once common in the area were the Tasmanian devil, but today populations of these marsupial has dramatically declined because of the little-known virus that kills animals. It is a true paradise for fans of bird watching: the lucky ones manage to see sea eagle, soaring high, or a big Australian cormorant diving in the ocean waters searching for food.
The famous town of Port Arthur is in 60 km from Hobart with 500 people population. The first village here appeared in 1830, and was built as a prison after 3 years.
