Bay of Fires Lodge Walk
Discover the magnificent stretch of coastline known as the Bay of Fires
At the edge of Mt William National Park, in Tasmania's north east, the magnificent wilderness coastline known as the Bay of Fires invites you to experience its dramatic landscape, ecology and wildlife over a 4 day guided trek. Explore soft sandy beaches and hidden coves, delve into the rich diversity of the nearby woodlands, kayak the Ansons River and experience pure luxury in exquisite wilderness refuges.
During the days your walk will be led by well-informed, enthusiastic guides and small group sizes ensure the experience is in-depth and highly informative. In the evenings enjoy the privacy and comfort of the Forester Beach Camp and the award winning Bay of Fires Lodge, both of which nestle gently in the beautiful coastline. Designed with care and thoughtful attention to detail, at the end of each days walk you can relax in exclusive comfort whilst enjoying some of Tasmania's finest food & wine.
