Bay of Fires Walk
The Bay of Fires walk is a 4 day guided walk over approximately 40 kilometres in the north-east of Tasmania.
Day 1 - begins in Launceston, where you are met and transferred through the scenic and rich pastoral landscapes of Scottsdale and the tin mining town of Derby to the northern end of Mt. William National Park.
The walk begins at Boulder Point and is approximately 9 kilometres (4 hours). The night is spent at Forester Beach Camp.
Day 2 - travelling south you?ll be amazed at this magnificent coastline of colour and solitude. Elevated views of the park and out to sea are enjoyed from the ridgeline of sand dunes and prime heathlands.
Take time to explore the marsupial lawns behind the dunes, a great site to identify local wildlife prints.
Lunch is at historic Eddystone Point Lighthouse, and in the afternoon you?ll enjoy the seclusion of superb beaches and coves along the coastline before arriving at the sanctuary of the Bay of Fires Lodge.
Day 2 walk is approximately 14 km, 7 hours.
Day 3 - based at the lodge, the day is yours to relax or set off on yet another adventure paddling the tranquil waters of Ansons River. Discover the delicate ecology of this river system as it winds its way to the mouth of Ansons Bay, a haven for water birds and eagle rays. After lunch, leave the kayaks behind and stroll back to the lodge along the Abbotsbury Peninsula.
Your 3rd night's accommodation is again at the Bay of Fires Lodge.
Day 4 - after a leisurely breakfast, you can explore the beaches and headlands, take a swim, or simply curl up and read a book.
Leaving the lodge on foot, you make your way through the fragrant inland heath and peppermint forests to a secluded spot for lunch.
Your return trip takes you along the north coast to Bridport and then south through the Tamar wine region and Lilydale before returning to walkers? base at Quamby Estate.
