Cape Tourville Lighthouse, Freycinet Peninsula, Tasmania
Imagine the beautiful Tasman Sea and the Freycinet Peninsula in Tasmania. Navy blue coloured sea and the rocky Freycinet Peninsula. It is one of the spectacular views Freycinet Peninsula, a large peninsula at Eastern Tasmania and home to the Freycinet National Park.
The Cape Tourville Lighthouse was built on 1971 and it is unmanned. The cape offers scenic view of the Tasman Sea and the Nuggets (rock islands). The best way to reach there is by car and self-drive in Tasmania is highly recommended.
It takes around 2 hours of driving from either Hobart or Launceston to Freycinet National Park. There are towns along the way and they have great coffee places almost every stop.
The Cape Tourville Lighthouse is one of the tourist spots in Freycinet. The Wineglass Bay is the most popular one and I will blog about it later. I stayed at the Freycinet Lodge, a resort in the Freycinet National Park.
There are road signs all the way to the Cape Tourville and there are designated parking bays.
At the top of the cape, there is the beautiful white Cape Tourville Lighthouse. As I mentioned earlier, the lighthouse is unmanned.
There is a boardwalk and you can enjoy the beautiful view of Tasman Sea and the Nuggets. I was lucky as the sky was clear as it was gloomy a few days earlier in Tasmania.
