Bay of Fires

The Bay of Fires on the North East coast of Tasmania is famous for its clear blue ocean, snow-white sand and orange, lichen covered rocks. It is an enchanting place which got its name in 1773 from explorer Tobias Furneaux who saw the many fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches. Now its the campfires of tourists which line the beaches.
