​The Parks and Wildlife Service is implementing key strategies of the Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan 2019.  The Wineglass Bay 2nd Lookout is funded through the Tasmanian Governments Tourism Infrastructure in Parks [TIIP] and Improving State-wide Visitor Infrastructure [ISVI], and the federal government election commitment funding at $450,000. This project aims to build infrastructure, while enhancing the visitor experience, that supports the protection of ecological and heritage values within the Freycinet National Park.

The second lookout will provide a loop extension to the existing Wineglass Bay lookout, constructed from a combination of manmade and natural materials. The aesthetics will be blended with the existing lookout, and complimentary to the local landscape.

The new lookout will:

  • Reduce congestion through visitor dispersal, providing a more tranquil experience
  • Improve visitor experience through access to different visual fields and interpretive elements
  • Improve safety for visitors through considered design

The documents for this project are below.​​
