Wineglass Bay Sail Walk - Accommodation
Each group has exclusive use of Lady Eugenie - whilst travelling with the Tasmanian Walking Company on the 4 or 6 day Wineglass Bay Sail Walk, she becomes your home. A sound night’s sleep is fundamental in making a good walking holiday a great walking holiday. Your accommodation should be enjoyed not endured!

Lady Eugenie is a luxurious, 23-metre (75-ft) ketch rigged yacht. She is five metres wide, which makes her stable, safe and comfortable for both novices and sailing enthusiasts.

Her clipper bow, complete with a bowsprit you can walk on, is perfect for watching dolphins and other marine life. There's nothing more exhilarating than turning off her engine, relaxing and harnessing the power of the wind in her sails.

With beautifully maintained teak decks and classical, varnished hand rails, Lady Eugenie’s spacious decks are the perfect setting for relaxing whilst taking in the stunning scenery of Tasmania’s east coast. The central cockpit provides plenty of comfortable seating, with a picturesque alfresco dining setting: a magical place to be at sunset.

During the evening, you can relax in the delightful and spacious saloon with dining table and comfortable lounge. Her professionally equipped, separate galley for the crew guarantees delicious meals made from local produce.

There are five comfortable cabins on board, all with air conditioning, private bathrooms and showers. There are two double rooms and three twin rooms. Room allocations are first-come-first-served; we will do our best to provide you with your preferred room type, but this will depend on existing reservations at your time of booking.

Wineglass Bay Sail Walk - Food
Each night, your guides will prepare scrumptious, three-course dinners, complete with carefully selected Tasmanian wines. The state's best chefs have been used to develop the menus and train the guides, using as much local produce as possible. Dinner is served in the saloon on board Lady Eugenie or in the relaxed atmosphere of a barefoot dinner on the beach under the stars.

Each morning, wake up to the aroma of hot coffee and tea brewing. Freshly baked bread and a selection of cereals and porridge await you for each delicious breakfast. After breakfast, pack your lunch box from a sumptuous buffet. Your guide will carry snacks for along the track, including scroggin (trail mix), shortbread and chocolate. Each afternoon, you will arrive to an inviting afternoon tea of baked muffins or an antipasto platter on board Lady Eugenie.

Wineglass Bay Sail Walk - Guides
The guides are the most important asset. They are passionate outdoor enthusiasts, knowledgeable interpreters and fantastic cooks all rolled into one. Feedback regarding our guides is invariably positive.

Walking independently can be very enjoyable, but you can miss out on so much of the 'inside information' along the way. Through your guides’ interpretation, you can learn about the flora, fauna and local history of this awe-inspiring wilderness. And rather than carrying and cooking all of your food, what could be more relaxing than sitting back at the end of the day, while your guides cook up a three-course feast that you can enjoy with a selection of Tasmanian wines?

By enjoying Lady Eugenie between your walking journeys, as both your accommodation and your mode of transport, you capture the spectacular views of Tasmania’s east coast that are only available by boat.
