Another upset! Then again, though the Freycinet Experience is arguably the least well-known of the seven Great Walks of Australia, that’s part of its charm. Created by Joan Masterland (founder of Tassie’s iconic Cradle Mountain Huts walk on the Overland Track) 22 years ago, the four-day experience, which winds through some of the most pristine environment in the world, including Wineglass Bay, is not only still owned by its creator, it’s still run with the same principles. Only one walk runs per week, only 10 people per walk (with two guides, two lodge coordinators and a boat driver to accompany them) and you’ll walk unmarked trails that aren’t open to the public, from the south to the north of the Freycinet Peninsula. With shimmering white and azure beaches, verdant forest, and the possibility of both Tasmanian devil and humpback whale sightings, it’s solar powered luxury at its finest. From $2350 per person, including accommodation, food and wine. More info: Freycinet Experience
