Bay of Fires

Bay of Fires is a truly special region north of St. Helens on Tasmania’s north-east coast with clean white beaches, blue water and granite rocks splashed with orange lichen.
It’s not surprising that Lonely Planet named the Bay of Fires as one of the world’s hottest travel destinations.
Beach activities and bird-watching are popular in this beautiful reserve. You may even see a pod of dolphins as they cruise along parallel to the beach.
The area is also known for its snorkelling and diving, with scenic reefs, corals, underwater caves and abundant sea life.
The Bay of Fires Conservation Area offers beach-side camping and the elevated sites amongst the trees have amazing views of the coast and sea. There are camping grounds along a 13-kilometre section of road at the southern end of the conservation area, approached via St Helens.
The bay was named by Captain Tobias Furneaux in 1773 in response to the many Aboriginal fires he saw burning on its shore.
