The second day of my Tasmania trip was dedicated to Freycinet National Park in the East of the island, a rather small but untouched area with beautiful beaches, rocks and rainforests which reminded me a bit of Seychelles. I did an extensive hiking round to Wineglass Bay lookout and beach as well as Hazards Beach, and smaller walks around Cape Tourville and Sleepy Bay.
In the afternoon, I took a scenic driving route to Launceston, the second biggest city in Tasmania located in the upper middle of the island. I arrived just in time to be able to complete a walk around the city centre and the fabulous Cataract Gorge, an impressive gorge very close to the city used as a local recreation area.
