Bay of Fires Tours

The Bay of Fires got its unique name in the late 1700s from Captain Tobias Furneaux, when he spotted flames along the coast, leading him to believe the country was heavily populated. Evidence left behind by Aboriginal people can still be seen today along the coast, where the bay serves as a popular place among folks who like the outdoors. Known for white beaches, orange lichen-covered rocks and blue water, the area is prime for boating, fishing, swimming, surfing and camping.

The Bay of Fires is divided into a northern, middle and southern section, with the northern piece found within Mt William National Park. This is a day-use only area only. The middle portion is also known as Policemans Points. There are many campsites, some with beach access, but there are no shops or facilities, so visitors must bring everything they might need. Taylors Beach and The Gardens Beach are popular spots with folks just visiting for the day.

Practical Info

Located on Tasmania’s East Coast, the Bay of Fires runs from Binalong Bay north to Eddystone point. St Helens is the closet town to the Bay of Fires, about a 20-minute drive down Binalong Bay Road. Visitors can pick up any needed supplies there.
