Bay of Fires Day Tour
- Duration: 10 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: BOF
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, home of Bobbie Bear, for views of the lavender paddocks. Your tour guide will provide an interactive talk on the lavender, where it comes from, why they grow it, how they process it.
Then onto the Myrtle Rainforest Walk on the Welborough Pass for a short walk through moss covered trees and ferns. Your tour guide will talk about all the different trees found in Tasmania's rainforests, with this walk showcasing Myrtles, Sassafras, Blackwoods and ManFerns.
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 (Tuesday & Thursday tour only)
As we depart the Bay Of Fires area, we stop on the main wharf in St. Helens to view the local fishing boats, before heading south through Beaumaris and Scamander, turning up into the St Mary’s Pass where we head inland to pass through the contrasting grazing lands of the Fingal Valley and Northern Midlands.
