At the edge of Tasmania’s Mt. William National Park, the magnificent wilderness coastline known as the Bay of Fires invites you to experience its dramatic landscape, ecology and wildlife. Led by qualified and friendly guides, small groups can explore both the fascinating beach environment and the rich diversity of the nearby woodlands.
This pristine coastal stretch of azure water and rocky headlands, with boulders dotted offshore, appears as if untouched for thousands of years and offers a beautifully remote landscape with something for everyone to discover.
The first night’s accommodation is spent at the environmentally friendly Forester Beach Camp. The second and third nights’ accommodation are at the multi-award winning Bay of Fires Lodge where guests are welcomed with an open living area complete with fireplace and private twin-share bedrooms. The perfect place to unwind at the end of each day.
In late 2013, the lodge opened a boutique day spa exclusively for our walkers. For more information on the spa, please visit our website.

Part of The Great Walks of Tasmania, the Bay of Fires Lodge Walk provides a four day walking experience on Tasmania’s North-East Coast.
The walk includes one night at the Forester Beach Camp and two nights at the award winning lodge. Our walk includes a half day kayak down the Ansons River.
The walk takes you along the pure white sands of this unique region.
You spend a night in a standing camp hidden in the sand dunes and the next day continue south passing Aboriginal middens, shell-covered beaches and Eddystone Lighthouse before arriving at the Bay of Fires Lodge. You are led by knowledgeable Tasmanian guides, trained in geology, botany or environmental science.
The lodge is an elegant sanctuary designed, built and operated along ecologically sustainable principles. It rests lightly on the landscape with sweeping ocean views.
Once there you can relax, walk, read, go kayaking down the Ansons River or just watch the ocean from the open deck.
You won’t want to leave when the times comes to head back. As Euan Ferguson, writing for The London Observer, said, “…It is so remote and so beautiful that I don’t want anyone else to know the precise location.”
The Bay of Fires Walk was recently awarded The Australian Travel and Tourism Award for Best Eco-Wilderness Experience for 2008.
