ITINERARY

Day One Meet at Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston at 8:45 am for a 9:00 am departure. You will be transferred by bus to the Bay of Fires.
Your walk starts in Mount William National Park, heading south to discover spectacular landscapes where sapphire seas contrast with pure white sands and burnt orange rocky outcrops. Explore scenic Boulder Point and Cobbler Rocks, and look out for the local fauna coming out to graze on the marsupial lawns at Cod Bay.
The day’s walking finishes at a waterfront property on Ansons Bay. It’s been dubbed the ‘Beach Shack’ but this is no beach shack. With an outdoor and indoor dining room, outdoor and indoor fireplace, hot showers, and running toilets, you’ll have all the creature comforts one could need after a day on the trail. You’ll be treated to a delicious dinner which, weather permitting, will be served under the stars overlooking the gorgeous Ansons Bay.
Day Two You’ll continue south, stopping at Picnic Point, and then Eddystone Point (the beginning of the Bay of Fires Conservation area), where an impressive pink granite lighthouse (built in 1889) sits on a point jutting out into the sea. This is a day for spotting wombats and echidnas, and maybe even a pod of playful dolphins.
Arrive at ‘The Beach Shack’ again to relax as a delicious dinner is prepared for you, served with Tasmanian Ninth Island wine
Day Three Take off on an 11-kilometre walk through one of the most untouched parts of the Bay of Fires, where it is unlikely you will see anyone other than your fellow walkers. See Sienna’s Mermaid Pool, Break Yake Beach, and Garden Lagoon Beach, stopping for lunch before continuing on to finish the walk at The Garden.
Meet your transfer at The Garden to return to Launceston, stopping along the way for lunch in the pretty fishing village of St Helens. Your arrival at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston will be at approximately 5.30pm – 6.00pm. If booking flights please do not book before 6.30pm.
