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 ONE
- Pick up from Launceston Airport or CBD
- Drive across to St Helens, stopping to stretch the legs at the giant timber carvings.
- Have lunch on the coast then enjoy a few hours exploring around Eddystone Point and the Lighthouse. This is our first opportunity to really relax and get a feel for the true wilderness of this coastline. We will be surrounded by white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and impressive boulders, a wonderful place and hopefully great weather so we can dip our toes in!
– Drive to our accommodation at Icena Farm
– Dinner and relax

DAY TWO
– Drive to The Gardens and walk the most stunning section of coast, rock pools, orange lichen on rocks reflecting on the azure blue of the ocean. Pearly white sands, oh it’s just lovely! This truly is a Bay of Fires area and we meander along a 3km section enjoy and morning tea on the beach before heading back.
- After lunch and very short drive we set out on the 8km Skeleton Bay circuit walk, where you start on open forest roads and trails allowing you to chat and not have to watch your feet. We then hit the coast and wiggle our way along exploring both coastal forest and rocky outcrops along another excellent section of Tasmanian coastline.
– We will enjoy a leisurely yoga/stretch session to ease out any sore muscles.
– Dinner
– A well deserved wine and cheese tasting

- We will spend the day exploring as there is so much to see in this area!
– Drive to Mount William National Park climb to summit (250m) and then explore more beaches and views of the Tasman Ocean on the Cobblers Rocks circuit. 16km easy grade. This area is rich in wildflowers and home to some very large kangaroos! Another opportunity to walk soft sandy white beaches and feel the sand between your toes.
