Celebrating 25 years plus a centenary at Freycinet…

     Category: News

It’s been a year of celebration at Freycinet Experience Walk with their beautiful Friendly Beaches Lodge accommodation turning 25 years old.

Designed by owner and guided walking pioneer, Joan Masterman in conjunction with Ken Latona (who also designed Bay of Fires Lodge and the Cradle Mountain Huts), this lodge is a tribute to timeless design and environmentally sound architecture. The purpose built lodge provides a beautiful home for walkers with a focus on comfort, environment, fine art and relaxation. It is located on a 130 hectare site in a private location with beach access.

On this occasion, Mrs Masterman said, “Friendly Beaches is a magical place. I am incredibly fortunate to have been the owner-operator of the Freycinet Experience Walk for 25 years. The dedication of the Tasmanian guides has ensured the Walk’s ongoing success. ”

The anniversary of the lodge also coincides with the centenary of Freycinet National Park, created in 1916 along with Mt Field as Tasmania’s first national parks. It’s been a big year celebrating this combined 125th anniversary!
