Tasmania's east coast is fast becoming renown around the world for its fluffy pure white sands and crystal clear azure blue waters. Granite rocky outcrops covered with orange lichen jut out into the ocean to separate a large collection of hidden away beaches. No crowds, just relaxing peaceful locations that offer you a chance to reflect on how wonderful Mother Nature is.
This is the Bay of Fires.
On your way to the Bay of Fires visit Bridestowe Lavender Farm, home of Bobbie Bear, for views of the lavender paddocks. Then onto the Myrtle Rainforest Walk on the Welborough Pass for a short walk through moss-covered trees and ferns. At the Bay of Fires, we call into Binalong Bay for a beach experience, then Harbour Point to view the orange covered granite rocks, then a beach walk along the remote Taylor's Beach. Fantastic. After your beach experience sample fresh oysters straight from the farm-lease 65, view fishing boats in St. Helens, and then head south to the St Mary's Pass where we head inland to pass through the contrasting grazing lands of the Fingal Valley and Northern Midlands.
