Tasmania’s best-known conservation area, named by Lonely Planet as one of the world’s ‘Most Beautiful Beaches’ and there’s no doubt the Bay of Fires lives up to this reputation.
The Bay of Fires Conservation Area comprises a series of magnificent bays that stretch along Tasmania’s north-east coast. Bright orange lichen encrusts the granite boulders, contrasting spectacularly against the whiter-than-white sandy beaches and turquoise water in the bays.
Binalong Bay, a peaceful beachside township, marks the southern end of the Bay of Fires, while larapuna/Eddystone Point, within Mount William National Park marks the boundary to the north.
Tasmanian beaches are renowned for their beauty and seclusion, and the Bay of Fires is up there with the best of them – perfect for long leisurely walks, swimming in the protected bays, fishing off the rocks and quiet coastal camping nestled behind the dunes – you’ll be left wondering how you’ll ever motivate yourself to leave this pocket of paradise!
