The Bay of Fires Walk is classed as one of the finest guided wilderness walks in the world. It is certainly the best in Australia, and its appeal to cross-country walkers around the world draws many to visit Australia just to do this walk.

The Bay of Fires guided walks are for those looking for a 3 day walking experience with the creature comforts! Your bags will be transported each day, leaving you free to enjoy your walk. As the Bay of Fires is a remote and secluded area, your nights will be spent camping under the stars.

On night one and on night two you will stay in our waterfront beach shack on a beautiful Ansons Bay at the Bay of Fires. You’ll be treated to fine Tasmanian wine and cheeses, delicious dinners featuring wonderful Tasmanian produce and more.

On the east coast of Tasmania in Australia lies the magnificent and untouched Bay of Fires. This magical landscape of stunning contrasts features pure white beaches, vivid orange granite boulders and a ribbon of sapphire and emerald seas, all fringed with rich forests. In 2009, this area was named one of the world’s hottest travel destination by international guide book Lonely Planet, once you experience it first hand, you’ll understand why. They say “White beaches of hourglass-fine sand, Bombay Sapphire sea, an azure sky – and nobody. This is the secret edge of Tasmania, laid out like a pirate’s treasure map of perfect beach after sheltered cove, all fringed with forest. It’s not long since the Bay of Fires came to international attention and the crowds are bound to flock. Now is the time to visit”.

Activity Highlights:
This area has a rich geoheritage, with a remarkable diversity of Earth features for such a small island, with rocks from all major geological periods, a vast suite of different rock types and a range of geomorphological processes which are not found in other parts of Australia.
