Bay of Fires Day Tour ex. Launceston

Experience one of Tasmania’s most stunning coastal locations. This full-day small-group tour takes you to all the best attractions, including an oyster tasting at a local oyster farm, a visit to a lavender farm, and spectacular views of the bay, the Weldborough Pass, and Fingal Valley.

Highlights

  • Full-day Bay of Fires tour from Launceston
  • Visit a lavender farm and try fresh oysters at an oyster farm
  • Small-group tour to ensure a personalised experience
  • Stunning views of the Bay of Fires, Weldborough Pass, and Fingal Valley

Tasmania’s east coast is fast becoming renown around the world for its white beaches, startling blue waters, and bright orange rocks. The Bay of Fires is one of Tasmania’s most beautiful locations. Granite rocky outcrops covered with orange lichen jut out into the ocean to separate a large collection of hidden away beaches.

Your day begins with an early morning pickup from your central Launceston hotel. On your way to the Bay Of Fires, you’ll stop in at Bridestowe Lavender Farm, home of Bobbie Bear, for views of the fairy-tale lavender paddocks. Your tour guide will provide an educational talk on the lavender, where it comes from, why they grow it and how they process it.

Then onto the Myrtle Rainforest Walk on the Welborough Pass for a short walk through lush moss covered trees and ferns. Your tour guide will talk about all the different trees found in Tasmania's rainforests such as, Myrtles, Sassafras, Blackwoods and Man Ferns which you will see along this refreshing walk.

Upon your arrival at the Bay Of Fires you will call into Binalong Bay for a beach experience on Tasmania's fluffy white east coast sand, then Harbour Point to view the granite rocks covered with orange lichen, then a beach walk along the remote Taylor’s Beach. Here, you’ll have free time to stroll along the white sands and take in the stunning landscapes.

After your beach excursion, you will get to sample fresh oysters straight from the farm at Lease 65. Other activities include viewing the fishing boats in St. Helens, perusing or purchasing fresh seasonal fruit, jams and sauces as well as fruit-filled ice-cream at Eureka Fruit Farm in Scamander before heading  south to the St Mary’s Pass where you will head inland to pass through the contrasting grazing lands of the Fingal Valley and Northern Midlands. Back in Launceston, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Small Group Day Tour - Bay of Fires

Tour was great. Since we are a small group, the itinerary was a bit flexible, provided that we are still on schedule. Dave was very kind and accommodating. Would highly recommend the tour.

Wonderful day at Bay of Fires!

The tour was very well organized and we have seen a lot of spots and places not only at Bay of Fires but around the Launceston area. Dave, our tour guide, is helpful and friendly and has a lots of knowledge about Tasmania and its features. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Great local intel

David or Dave, who runs the business, drives the van, and gives the tour, grew up in Launceston and shares his local knowledge of the area. As a farmer, he’s knowledgeable about the local industry and explained about opium poppies, fishing, etc. We learned about myrtle trees and how they steal nutrients from nearby fern plants!! Great walk in the rain forest! Bay of Fires is gorgeous. Lavender farm is lovely. As a vegetarian, I wasn’t sure how the oyster farm visit would go, but Dave had an alternative with local blueberries (very delicious!) and appreciated it very much!
