Binalong Bay

Travel Guide
Binalong Bay

The gateway to the Bay of Fires, this coastal village is known for its beautiful white sand beaches and huge boulders, turned vivid orange by lichen.

Binalong Bay is a charming coastal town set among incredible natural beauty at the entrance to the Bay of Fires. White sand dunes lead to crystal clear waters of brilliant aquamarine, a stark contrast to the fiery orange of lichen-covered boulders strewn along the shore.

The town is largely made up of eco-lodges and historic beach shacks, built in various architectural styles popular from the 1950s to today. Enjoy long walks along Binalong Bay Beach to Cozy Corner Beach, sunbathe on the powdery white sand and discover Aboriginal heritage in the shell heaps in the dunes where feasts were once held.

The Bay of Fires Conservation Area begins at Binalong Bay, with over 50 kilometres (31 miles) of beaches, secluded bays and inlets to explore on foot or by boat. The waters around Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires are stunningly clear with visibility to around 20 metres (65 feet). Don your snorkel and mask for a fantastic view of sea life from rock lobsters to dolphins. Dive in the ecosystems around the underwater granite boulders and kelp forests.

Rock lobsters are a specialty here, to be enjoyed with a bottle of wine and a view over the bay as the sunset turns the sky as orange as the boulders. Catch and cook your own, head to the local Binalong Bay Café or drive into St. Helens to enjoy dinner on a paddle-steamer or taste some soul food.

Enjoy a hike through coastal banksias and wildflowers to the Humbug Point Nature Reserve and listen to calls from the incredible variety of birdlife. Along the coast you have a chance of spotting an albatross.

Camp out and go fly fishing, windsurfing, swimming and kayaking at Grants Lagoon, a short distance from the bay. Binalong Bay is located on Tasmania’s East Coast, a 15-minute drive from St. Helens, where you can buy fuel and groceries. Purchase firewood and water if you’re planning on camping.
