Tasmania’s east coast is fast becoming renown around the world for it’s fluffy pure white sands and crystal clear azure blue waters. Granite rocky outcrops covered with orange lichen jut out into the ocean to separate a large collection of hidden away beaches. No crowds, just relaxing peaceful locations that offer you a chance to reflect on how wonderful Mother Nature is. This is the Bay Of Fires.
From the beginning of September to the end of March, the first attraction we visit on the tour is the Bridestowe Lavender Farm, home of Bobbie Bear, for views of the lavender paddocks (commercial lavender in full flower mid December to third week of January). Your tour guide will provide an interactive talk on the lavender, where it comes from, why they grow it, how they process it. Then free time for photos and to visit the gift shop / cafe.
From the beginning of April to the end of August, the first attraction we visit on the tour is Legerwood Memorial Tree Carvings. Planted to celebrate Armistice Day, the end of the Great War. But in 2002 some were showing signs of disease and unfortunately a decision was made that they could not remain. But instead of just cutting them out, the community arranged for a very clever man with a chainsaw to come and remove the long branches and he carved figures into the trees. Each tree is dedicated to a specific World War I soldier who came from the local region.

Then onto the Myrtle Rainforest Walk on the Welborough Pass for a short walk through moss covered trees and ferns. Your tour guide will talk about all the different trees found in Tasmania's rainforests, with this walk showcasing Myrtles, Sassafras, Blackwoods and ManFerns.
At the Bay Of Fires collect a sample of fresh oysters straight from the farm—Lease 65 (weekday tours only, oyster farm not open weekends) which we enjoy as an entree to your lunch. We call into Binalong Bay for a beach experience on Tasmania's white east coast sand (as well as lunch stop), then Harbour Point to view the granite rocks covered with orange lichens, then a beach walk along the remote Taylor’s Beach. Fantastic.

As we depart the Bay Of Fires area, we stop for a break in the fishing village of St. Helens, before heading south through Beaumaris and Scamander, turning up into the St Mary’s Pass where we head inland to pass through the contrasting grazing lands of the Fingal Valley and Northern Midlands.
