Bays of Fire was part of our itinerary as we did the Coastal Drive in Tassie. The drive itself was very relaxing and scenic, and there were many stop off points along the drive to explore the beach. There wasn't much people around the beach,...More

We were there on a rather cold day but it was still worth a stop and look. As others have said the walk to the beach is short and what a spectacular view. The rocks are covered with red algae? and look amazing. It's fun...More

Hi! Is there a specific/best viewing spot of the red rocks? We have a 10mth old baby so wondering if it will be easy enough to get a good view somewhere? The area looks big so bit confused. Thanks in advance :)
