About Bay of Fires

General Information about Bay of Fires

Tasmania's Bay of Fires is a region of white beaches, blue water and granite boulders. The bay was named by Captain Tobias Furneaux in 1773 in response to the many Aboriginal fires he saw burning on its shore. People visiting the area today often conclude that the name refers to the play of light on the water. Beach activities and bird-watching are popular in this beautiful reserve.

The region includes some 30 kilometres of coastline where there are more extraordinary white sand beaches. The four day Bay of Fires Walk features some of Tasmania's best attributes – fine local foods, cool-climate wines and pristine landscapes. Guests stay in permanent camps along the way, finishing at the stylish Bay of Fires Lodge. Walks operate between October and May.
