camping bay of fires tasmania

Without doubt, Bay of Fires is one of the most beautiful camping locations in Tasmania where yu can camp for absolutely no charge for up tp 4-weeks. For many years, savvy Tasmanians have flocked to the Bay of Fires over Christmas, Easter, long-weekends and on school holidays to soak up the beauty of the area including the white sand and azure sea. In 2009, Lonely Planet listed Tasmania's Bay of Fires as the world's "hottest" travel destination yet despite its increased popularity you’re still likely to have these sun-drenched ocean beaches and secret coves all to yourself many times during the year. The maximum stay in any of the many campsites at Bay Of Fires is 4 weeks - you do need to take your own firewood and water. Access to the Bay Of Fires Conversation Area is via Binalong Bay Rd (C850) and then Gardens Rd (C848), running north along the shore.

There are numerous options for day visits or multiday trips at the Bay of Fires Conservation Area, particularly given the many access points around the beaches and bays. From the Gardens you can paddle around 10 kilometres to the popular small settlement of Ansons Bay, where a campsite sits near the mouth of the bay. There are other kayaking and canoeing opportunities include along Ansons River or around Big Lagoon and Sloop Lagoon. The larger town of St Helens is only a short drive away, where you can buy food and petrol and also have a shower at council operated facilities.
