Found on Australia’s island state of Tasmania is the Bay of Fires. The northeastern bay was so named by Tobias Ferneaux in 1773 when he spotted the beaches flecked with fires lit by the Aboriginals. Beginning in the south at Binalong Bay, this stretch of coastline reaches north to Eddystone Point. Unique orange lichen-stained rocks, pristine white sand beaches and clear waters beckon people from both near and far. Camping, hiking (including a 4-day guided walk), fishing, boating, surfing and birdwatching are just a few of the activities visitors can get involved in.
