We left Binalong Bay and drove north admiring the beautiful sights the Bay of Fires offered to us. The next place that we stopped at and where I took photographs was ‘The Gardens’ at the northern end of the Bay of Fires.
This place took my breath away! The water is the most stunning aqua colour. It is so beautiful! I felt like we had stumbled across a hidden treasure that no-one else yet discovered! I felt so privileged to be there and to be witness to such natural beauty!
To get there, you drive along a narrow, quiet and isolated little country road until the road comes to an end. We pulled over on a grassy curb. There was another car pulled over also. Great! It’s always fun to meet up and chat to other people. The things you learn! We could see a lady standing admiring the view and began to talk to her. Her husband was with her but he is a keen photographer and was off ‘rock hopping’ taking photographs. I’m a keen photographer too but not keen enough to rock hop! lol The lady tells us they come here often as they think it is the most beautiful place in all of Tasmania. They used to live in mainland Australia but have moved to Tasmania to live. Her husband is retired and follows his creative interests these days. She is a nurse. From memory they live in a little town west of Devonport. They were on a road trip for a few days – a regular thing they do.
Here are some of the photographs I took of The Gardens. I whittled them down to six. There are a few that are very similar (the last 3) but I couldn’t decide which ones to exclude so have included them all! As usual, I have included camera settings for any photography enthusiasts.
Camera Settings – Lens: 10-24mm ISO: 200 Aperture: F/11 Shutter Speed: 1/200s
It was hard to drag ourselves away from The Gardens but we had yet to make our way to Launceston where we would be spending the next two nights. The next Tassie Trip post will still be Day 6 and I’ll be sharing some mystery photographs taken on the trip after leaving The Gardens and before we arrived in Launceston.
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, and Day 6 – Bay of Fires: Binalong Bay of our Tassie Trip!
Ciao for now,
