Planned event: Freycinet Helicopter Operations - Planned Event
Applies from 30/5/2023

On 30 May 2023 the Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) will be carrying out helicopter operations from the old quarry site at Freycinet National Park to complete the annual service of remote toilets at Schouten Island, Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach campsites. 

If the weather is unsuitable for flying on 30 May, then 31 May is the planned backup day. 

Operations involve the use of a helicopter to fly out and replace sealed toilet 'pods' and composted waste. The waste is then transferred to an appropriate waste processing facility.

During operations, there will be an increase in vehicle traffic movement on Malunna Road, The Fisheries. 

The Parks and Wildlife Service ask visitors to the National Park and residents of the Fisheries to comply with staff and contractor directions during these operations. Some walking track access may be delayed briefly during operations.

The Parks and Wildlife Service is committed to providing a safe and quality experience for visitors to our reserves.

​​​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.​
