Binalong Bay

Binalong Bay is situated at the southern end of the Bay of Fires Conservation area only an 11 km drive from St Helens.

The Bay of Fires is located on the northeastern coast of Tasmania around 176km from Launceston and 236km from Hobart.

It includes a gorgeous coastline that stretches over 50 kilometres from Binalong Bay in the south to Eddystone Point in the north. The northern section of the bay is part of Mount William National Park; the southern end is a conservation area that is divided into three sections, with Ansons Bay dividing the southern and northern ends.

This popular conservation reserve is actually a string of breathtakingly beautiful beaches, interspersed by lagoons and rocky bluffs famous for its orange lichen-covered granite boulders. >

Bay of Fires Conservation Area Camping

​​ The Bay of Fires Conservation Area offers beach-side camping and the
elevated sites amongst the acacia trees have amazing views of the coast and sea.
