Details

 

This is defiantly a walk, to take slowly as you won’t want to miss a single speck of the scenery at the stunning Bay of Fires, it’s quite unlike anything you have ever seen before. You will find your own connection to the landscapes and enjoy being mindful in such a beautiful, remote part of the world. with lots of peace and quiet beautiful scenery local Tasmanian produce and a group of like-minded people, this is the perfect escape. If you love white beaches and crystal clear waters this is the tour for you.
 
This tour is for anyone, the grade 2 level means that it is good introduction into multi-day walking, and with our beautiful accommodation all you will need to carry is a day bag with water and a sunhat (ok, it’s Tassie, maybe a waterproof jacket too) Some general fitness is still required. This is very much an adventure about yourself coming together with a group of like-minded people and taking on the beauty of the Bay of Fires.

Itinerary
This is a wonderful adventure to the Bay of Fires and we have walked the area extensively and can personally vouch for its beauty and serenity, however we reserve the right to change the itinerary suject to weather conditions, local factors and group size, preferences.

Day 1Arrival & straight into it

10am – Pick up from Launceston airport or CBD on Friday Morning. Drive across to St Helens, stopping at a waterfall and the cheese factory for a tasting. ( if you are flying over you will need to make sure you are available to leave by 10am – we will send out suggested flights to catch)

Lunch at Binalong Bay, where we will prepare to start our first walk. 12km, 3 hours along this absolutely stunning part of the coast. We will be surrounded by white sandy beach, turquoise waters and impressive boulders, bring your swimmer if inclined as there will be time for a quick dip!

5pm – drive to our accommodation at Icena Farm, where you will get to relax and settle I while we prepare a healthy nutritious dinner before a relaxing evening.

Day 2Eddystone Point

8am – Drive to Eddystone Point, and spend some time around the lighthouse before embarking on our walk to boulder point. 16km – 5 hours easy walking some boulder hopping around headlands and beach walk, but a nice easy to moderate grade allowing time to enjoy the views and scenery. This area is rich in wildlife so you will find plenty of things to see as we head along the path.

4pm – We will enjoy a leisurely yoga/stretch session to ease out any sore muscles.

6pm – Dinner

8pm – A well-deserved wine and cheese tasting

Day 3Spend the day exploring

8am – Drive to Mount William National Park climb to summit (250m) and sea views over the Tasman. This area is rich in wildflowers and home to some very large kangaroos! Bring your bathers as this is the day to go for a dip!

4pm – Back to Icena for a mindfulness and wellness nutrition session

6pm – Our last dinner together followed by a free night to sit around and chat or play some board games

Day 4Big smiles

10am – leave the area, with big smiles and promises to return. We head to Bridport, for a morning nature walk, or 2 hours of Kayaking (TBC).

2pm – back to Launceston via Jansz Winery.

4pm – We will aim to have you back at the airport by 4pm, so flights can be booked from 5pm onwards – again we will send suggested times
