We were very fortunate to avoid the pre-Christmas madness and escape to the stunning Freycinet Peninsula for an incredible 4 day family hike. Our boys (ages 8 and 10) had the time of their lives, running free on pristine beaches, swimming in the spectacular Wineglass Bay, exploring the native bush, getting in touch with nature, and learning a lot along the way.
I wondered how they would cope without any kind of screen entertainment (no iPods, iPads, iPhones, no TV, no electricity), and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was for them and how enthusiastically they embrac
ed this wonderful experience. Our two guides were fantastic, encouraging the boys and sharing their vast knowledge of the area, its history, flora and fauna.
The simple lodge is truly beautiful, an architectural delight, and the abundant delicious food, lovingly prepared by our hosts, was greatly appreciated after a long day hiking the wilderness.
We can highly recommend this experience, you will be forever grateful for the precious memories created sharing this unique adventure with your family.
