Binnalong Bay & The Bay of Fires

The town of Binalong Bay is situated at the southern end of the beautiful Bay of Fires. The area is one of the most scenic and beautiful places in Tasmania, from the blue sea and fine white sand to the orange-tinged boulders that hug the coast.┬áLocated north of St Helens it makes up the Bay of Fires Conservation Area – a protected coastal stretch from the seaside village of Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north. Its name refers to the Aboriginal fires seen along the coastline by Captain Tobias Furneaux when he sailed past in 1773.

The coastal landscape features rocky gullies, small secluded beaches, shore-hugging forests and the orange lichen-coloured boulders that many now associate with the name.┬áThe small beachside community of Binalong Bay boasts a beautiful stretch of clean white sand and clear water.┬áBinalong Bay and the Bay of Fires offer all kinds of outdoor activities, from scenic coastal walks and beachside fun to some of the world’s best game fishing. There are lots of camping sites along this stretch right by the beach.
