What you can expect
Tasmania’s east coast is fast becoming renown around the world for it’s 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 for views of the lavender paddocks and 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 on Tasmania's white east coast sand, then Harbour Point to view the granite rocks covered with orange lichens, 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, before heading 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.
Lunch at own expense.
