Discover forests of towering white gums where you and your walking companions, a maximum of 10, feel like the only souls on Earth. Then return each evening to the award-winning Friendly Beaches Lodge, nestled in its own secluded sanctuary, where delicious, candle-lit meals, steaming hot showers, deep baths and comfortable beds await.
Walk beaches of powder white sand. Hike spectacular pink granite mountains carrying only a small daypack. Explore the region by boat, go fishing, swimming and snorkelling and travel to uninhabited Schouten island.
For the duration of your stay, the lodge is for you and your walking companions exclusively. With only one trip held at a time, four knowledgeable staff members are focused purely on making your trip as enjoyable as possible. Unpack just once and sleep blissfully in private, comfortable rooms with warm, goose down doonas and quality, Egyptian cotton sheets.
Experience Freycinet from a truly unparalleled perspective.
