Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires

Shared by |tags, , , ,

On first setting foot on the Bay of Fires, it is hard not to be struck by the sheer beauty of its seemingly endless white beaches.

Aqua marine water only adds to the breathtaking beauty of this idyllic setting, which is a great place to unwind and let the world pass you by. You may also be completely alone and that is a rare and special treat!

But these are just some of the many natural attractions that make the Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires such an attractive holiday destination.

You can get a bird's eye view of the inlet and nearby coastline when you board a scenic flight which operates in the area – be sure to take your camera with you so that you don't miss out on capturing an unforgettable photo of your airborne journey.

The Billabong Bay Cafe is the perfect place to talk about your recent endeavours over a steaming cup of coffee and tasty meal with old and new friends.

After spending the day in paradise it is back to Hobart, but not before you stop at the Ironhouse Brewery.

A local establishment with a big reputation, the brewery is well known for its handcrafted brews that are made using traditional recipes and high-quality ingredients.

Other places to see on your drive back include the historic Spiky Bridge near Swansea, which takes its name from the jagged rocks that are used to ornament the bridge.

Built by convicts in the 1843 this man-made structure is in many ways a testament to Tasmanian ingenuity. 

A pair of binoculars will come in handy at the Tasmanian Bushland Garden at Buckland. The park is free to enter and will have you wanting to put on your explorer’s cap and traverse its botanical garden and nature reserve for hours on end.

You can catch a glimpse of the reserve’s abundant birdlife while you are there or enjoy meandering along the many paths that wind throughout the gardens.
