The Bay of Fires (palawa kani: larapuna) is a bay on the northeastern coast of Tasmania in Australia, extending from Binalong Bay to Eddystone Point. The bay was given its name in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux in Adventure,

who saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches.

Bay whaling activities were carried out in the area in the 1840s.
The Bay of Fires is a region of white beaches, blue water and orange-hued granite (the colour of which is actually produced by a lichen). The northern section of the bay is part of Mount William National Park; the southern end is a conservation area.
A wide range of activities can be pursued in the Bay of Fires area, including camping, beach activities, boating, bird watching, fishing, swimming, surfing and walking.

  • The Bay of Fires is nice but so overrated, heard so many great things prior and couldn't wait to get there and explore only to feel let down. I was fortunate to travel to Schouten island and found...

  • Not to be missed, the colours are stunning. Also do not miss the eco cruise at the Bay, Plenty of lovely picnic spots with many birds.

  • One of the most spectacular beaches in the east coast of Tasmania you should never miss visiting if you're in Tasmania. Much more warmer and fancy than what rest of the Tassie beaches can offer you! If you're lucky enough will see the seals in natural habitat. There are a lot of food and fancy restaurant options with beautiful modern accommodation available that you can access online. There are also camping grounds and very good walking tracks in the national parks where you could afford at daily rates or annual rates at your convenience. Road to the east coast is windy and adventurous but always worth the drive and money if you're a nature lover.
  • Loved it here, the rocks and beaches were to die for, definitely a place not to be missed, also unlike massive chunks of Tassie, there’s mobile coverage 😂
