“Mt Amos is one of the three granite mountains collectively known as the Hazards that dominate the Freycinet Peninsula and the nearby town of Coles Bay.”

Mount Amos - 3 hours return.

Infinitely less visited, but infinitely more spectacular, than Tasmania's famed Wineglass Bay Lookout is the summit of Mt Amos, immediately above the lookout. While the lookout platform offers a glance at the perfect curve of the state's most famous beach, the mountain above provides a mesmerising perspective far beyond the stripe of sand.

Begin on the trail to the lookout, but after just a few metres take the signposted track to the left. This stays on flat ground for a while, cutting along the base of Mt Amos, but don't be fooled - it's about to get very steep. When it does turn up onto the mountain, it does so with intention - you'll scale granite slabs that require the use of hands as much as feet. These get slippery and dangerous if it's wet, so assess the weather forecast carefully before you set out. Pause often and turn around to take in the view back over Coles Bay, often filled with boats and kayaks.

The steep ascent only flattens as you come onto the summit, which is a jumble of giant boulders. Wineglass Bay is a swoosh of white sand 450 metres below you, with Mt Graham and Freycinet rising behind it. Far in the distance you can even see Maria Island. Descend the way you came up - and take it very easy as steep up is tricky back..
