Bay Of Fires, Launceston Reviews - Write a Review

  • This was a pretty place. There is a good little park for kids with toilet stop here. The rocks are big and round, easy to climb on, interestingly the colour of the red, comes from a type of kelp on the rocks.

  • A must visit place in Tasmania. It has clean, white beaches, blue water and colourful granite rocks splashed with orange lichen. A good place to take photographs. Bay of Fires is one of the conservation reserve area in Tasmania. From the North is Eddystone Point and in the South is Binalong Bay. It is a good idea to drop in to St.Helens town for fish and chips at the waterfront area.

  • Best kept secret of Tasnamia. Spend the night here and wake up for an incredible sunrise out over the Tasman sea!

  • Stunning East Coast. Awesome camping too

  • Beautiful, you need to go and see it with your own eyes
