After spending the night and having breakfast at our beautiful B&B at St Mary’s it was time now to move on again. Today we were off to explore ‘The Bay of Fires’ and after a morning tea stop at a beautiful bakery at St Helens, our first stop was Binalong Bay.
I always thought that the name ‘The Bay of Fires’ came from the bright red, orange and yellow colours in the rocks. I was wrong! The Bay of Fires name was given to the area in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux in Adventure, who saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches.
Binalong Bay is situated at the southern end of the Bay of Fires. The town was originally a fishing hamlet but is better known now as a village with a large proportion of holiday dwellings. What a beautiful spot! Once again, I was spellbound by the colours in the rocks! Even the cloudy day didn’t dull the impact, but I won’t waffle on, I’ll let the photo’s tell the story! Once again, for the photography enthusiasts I’ve included my camera settings.
Next Tassie Trip post we will still be on Day 6 and I will be sharing photo’s taken at another location on ‘The Bay of Fires’ (I’m keeping it a secret for now). This place blew my mind – breathtakingly stunning!!
Here’s where to go to see Day 1 – Hobart, Day 2 – Hobart, Day 3 – Richmond, and Day 4 – Port Arthur, Day 5 – Bicheno, Day 5 – Wineglass Bay, Day 5 – Sleepy Bay, Day 5 – Cape Tourville, and Day 5 – St Mary’s of our Tassie Trip!
