If you are tired of the mainlands overdone, over populated, attractions & really want to smell sea air, feel freshness on your skin & take in views you dream of, this coastline stretch is it. Not a lot of service, so no phone! Yeah! Make...More

Nice beaches and very unique rocks covered in brilliant orange lichen. Scenic, no doubt, but a long drive to get there. We were there on a cool spring day and managed a nice picnic. In retrospect, not sure we would have been too disappointed if...More

Long road to get there but worth a look. Very pretty and you will be taking lots of pictures. I would recommend going at sunrise for the best views.

The strangely shaped rocks with stained red are a distinctive feature on the beautiful beach littered with seaweed that is tough and strong, trapping communities of plant and animal life in its strands. The seagulls eye picnickers and their food while beachcombers can explore the...More

Although quite windy and chilly a visit to the Bay of Fires is recommended. Access is easy and the views are worth the drive. Take a camera.

Great drive along the beach, stopped at along the way and the end where the lookout is. From the lookout you are able to see the full bay of fires. The stones are a gorgeous colour. Well worth the drive out from St Helens.

Bay of fires is perfect. White sands. Crystal clear waters, beautiful rocks covered in red algae. It’s out of this world. Often quiet and solitary. Also harbours a lovely bush background and some lovely wineries and produce stores along the way from Launceston. I would...More
