The walk starts in Launceston at 8:00 am and finishes in Launceston late afternoon around 5:00 pm. We have graded the walking on this trip as easy. The walking on the first two days on the Bay of Fires walk is easy to moderate, with some beach walking. At Freycinet, there are some steep sections but overall the walking is easy to moderate. This trip operates with two professional guides ensuring that you have both a safe and enjoyable walking holiday. Guides are knowledgeable of the area, including flora and fauna and they can offer easier and harder walk options along the way.
