Half-Day Guided ATV Exploration Tour from Coles Bay

2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Tours depart daily from Coles Bay at 8am.

    See Freycinet in a way like no other! Riding your own all-terrain vehicle to isolated parts of the famous Freycinet National Park. You will see magical beaches and spectacular granite sea cliffs. This fully guided ATV tour gives you a truly special insight into this rarely seen coastal environment.

    A quad bike tour is the perfect way to get off the beaten track and discover some of Freycinet's lesser known beautiful spots! The team of professional guides have extensive ATV experience. Best of all, no previous experience is necessary and all training is provided!

    Your 4-hour adventure starts at the stunning Coles Bay on the East Coast of Tasmania, the gateway to the Freycinet Peninsula. At the start of the tour you will learn the basics of quad riding, including safe ATV handling and riding technique. From here your guide takes you for an unforgettable journey through the coastal forest along 4WD tracks to two stunning destinations.

    First you will ride to South Friendly Beaches, a secluded, pristine, white sandy beach where you will enjoy a tea break and a walk on the beach. From here you travel through boulder strewn valleys to admire the Coastal Cliffs surrounding Cape Tourville Lighthouse or onto the inviting cove of Bluestone Bay, where you will break for lunch.

    During the tour, a strong emphasis is placed on interpretive tours of the national park and provide you with a full appreciation of the area with its rich cultural, historical and environmental heritage. Using ATVs allows people to feel a sense of freedom and connect with the area. You ride the bumps, feel the breeze and take in the sights and smells of nature. The tour wraps up around noon. 

    The vehicles have automatic transmission, are simple to operate and suitable for beginners and up. All tours include an additional 30 minute training session.

    The tour operator is proudly carbon neutral and is a member of Greening Australia's Breathe Easy program, ensuring they are taking care of the environment in the best way possible!

    We had an absolute ball on our half day tour with the delightful Dave this morning. The trails were fantastic, we navigated through bush and along the coast, stopping along the way so that Dave could point out significant historical and geological features. Lunch and morning tea

    At first I thought a half day guided quad bike tour would be fun albeit a little expensive but at the end of our trip I would happily have paid twice as much for the privilege of experiencing David's passion for the area, sharing his knowledge and having a good load of fun along

    Thank you for your review, Jennie. The Half Day tour does require that little bit of extra time, but with so much to see in the wonderful Freycinet National Park, it's well worth the time. We're glad to hear you enjoyed it!

    Had the best morning out on the ATV tour this morning. Lots of local history, lots of big puddles and beautiful scenery. Food provided was very fresh, local and delicious. I wouldn’t visit Coles Bay without doing this tour!
