Less than a ten minute drive from St Helens and you’ll arrive in Binalong Bay. The sight is simply jaw-dropping: the turquoise-coloured ocean breaks into a breathtaking white beach fringed with huge boulders draped in iconic orange lichen. The Bay of Fires has been luring holiday makers for decades, named by ‘Lonely Planet’ in 2009 as the world’s hottest travel destination, the Bay of Fires is a must on your Tasmanian holiday itinerary.

Place endless footprints along the vast stretches of perfectly white sand, spend hours jumping from one vibrate orange boulder to the next or float the days away swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. Extending from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north, the Bay of Fires is a glorious combination of untouched wilderness and perfect strands of beaches.

Laid-back and relaxing, Binalong Bay is a charming village of holiday homes and campsites.A great place to take time out swimming, boating, fishing, kayaking and walking.

The nearby Humbug Point Nature Recreation Area includes lovely spots like Skeleton Bay, Grants Point and Elephant Head. Popular for bushwalking and bird-watching, the Humbug Point heathlands attract a rich array of birdlife including yellow-tailed black cockatoos, wattlebirds and honeyeaters, while seabirds seen in the area include the magnificent white-bellied sea eagles, Pacific gulls, gannets, petrels and albatross. In spring, the area is ablaze with wildflowers, including native orchids and the distinct yellow flowers of native Banksia.

Further north along the Gardens Road, there are many beaches and bays to explore and lazy the days away. The bright white sands and crystal clear waters make the campsite of the Bay of Fires Conservation Area some of the best free camping in Tasmania.
