Once we arrived to the white beaches of the Bay of Fires, we knew we did not plan our stay on the East Coast well enough – there were so many places to explore. So we had to cut our time in Hobart to make sure we had a little more time by the sea. One of the things that made me fall in love with that stretch of the coast was how diverse it is – you can stand on the lichen covered rocks and witness a majestic sunrise on the beach, and thirty minutes later you can wander through an ancient rainforest to feel the cool water blown off one of Tasmania’s highest waterfalls land gently on your face, and then, back on your way to the coast, as you drive past brilliantly green pastures you can stop at a dairy farm to taste on of the best cheddars in the whole of Australia. And after a couple of days exploring the Bay of Fires you can continue south along the coast and just 90 minutes later arrive to Freycinet National Park, the home of the world-famous Wineglass Bay. And even if we could not do the full trek to the bay with a toddler in row, we still had the best hike up to the lookout. My words wouldn’t do any justice to that place so I hope my pictures do a better job illustrating the beauty of Freycinet.
Wild, rugged, spectacular. Plus the oysters on the East Coast are some of the best we’ve had
