The Bay of Fires on Tasmania’s east coast is arguably the most popular camping area in Tasmania and extends from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north, which is well known for its Lighthouse. The southern section of The Bay of Fires is in the Conservation Area and is situated along a 13 km stretch of coast between Binalong Bay and The Gardens, north of St Helens. The middle section of the Bay of Fires lies in the vicinity of the small coastal holiday town of Ansons Bay. This section can be accessed via Policemans Point (popular campsite) or the northern shore of Ansons Bay, however, be aware that it is not possible to cross the outlet of Ansons Bay. The northern section of the Bay, from north of the outlet of Ansons Bay to Eddystone Point, lies within the Mt William National Park where again you will find fabulous camping options. To access the Bay of Fires campgrounds, head first to the small fishing and holiday town of St Helens on the East Coast of Tasmania. If travelling from Hobart, it will take you app. 3.5hrs drive on highway A1. From the small coastal holiday town of Bicheno, this drive via A3 is around 1 hour, however, we recommend you don’t rush and make available plenty of time to soak in the small towns along the way including Orford, Triabunna, Swansea, Scamander and Bicheno. A range of activities can be undertaken in the Bay of Fires area, including camping, long walks on the beach, boating, birdwatching, fishing, swimming (with care – obey all signs), surfing and bushwalking. The children will enjoy playing and exploring in the many rockpools in the area. Please be aware that Aboriginal middens (shell and bone deposits) are found in the sand dunes – please do not disturb these protected sites under any circumstances.
