Planned event: Notice of works and upcoming closures – Freycinet Foreshore Shared Use Track
Applies from 2/5/2022


Tasmanian company East Coast Constructions has been awarded the tender to construct a new elevated shared use track across Mosquito Creek linking the Coles Bay township to the Freycinet National Park. 

The new track has been carefully designed to avoid impacts to natural and cultural values as well as taking into account public feedback as part of the Reserve Activity Assessment (RAA) advertised earlier this year.   

Works are expected to commence in the first week of May and take up to a month to complete.  

During this time access to Richardsons Beach via the existing path from the Esplanade East will be restricted.  

Access to Richardsons Beach from the carpark below the Freycinet Visitor Centre will remain open. 

​If you have any queries, contact Freycinet Field Centre on 03 6256 7000.

About

​​​At Friendly Beaches, basic camping is available at Isaacs Point on a first-in, first-served basis for a maximum of 14 nights. Campsites are tucked between th​e​ coastal scrub, with a range of sites suitable for tents, campervans and caravans.

Here, the endless stretches of white sandy beach are perfect for long walks, while the ocean entices swimmers and surfers. Fish off the beaches or the rocks and enjoy the ever-changing colours of the granite in the fading evening light. 

Isaacs Point has pit toilets but no fresh water. 

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.​
