Cape Tourville, Sleepy Bay and Moulting Lagoon

Freycinet National Park is gorgeous and we try to visit it every time we go to Tasmania. Last year’s trip included Wineglass Bay (of course), Mount Amos, Friendly Beaches and the lower reaches of Moulting Lagoon.

This year we stayed at the Richardson’s Beach camping area in the National Park and drove down to Cape Tourville and Sleepy Bay nearby. We also noticed a small day-use area on the inland (northern) end of Moulting Lagoon and called in to see the swans.
