About

​​​​For overnight walkers there are small campsites at Wineglass Bay, Hazards and Cooks beaches.

Water collection points are found at a tap at the walking tracks car park and from a tank at Cooks Hut at the Cooks Beach Campground - however there is no guarantee there will be water available in this tank.

Composting toilets are available at Wineglass Bay, Hazards Beach and Cooks Beach campsites.

Freycinet is a Fuel Stove Only Area​ as it is very dry and vulnerable to fire. No fires are allowed in the national park. Gas and fuel stoves may be used except on days of Total Fire Ban, when no naked flames of any sort, including gas and fuel stoves, are allowed in the open.

For more information on walks leading to these campsites, please see our Freycinet Peninsula Circuit ​page.​​
