Devonport > Binalong Bay
After disembarking Spirit of Tasmania, depart Devonport for the 266km drive to Bay of Fires. But first, stop for breakfast (and chocolate!) at House of Anvers and then pick up some goodies in Elizabeth Town at either Ashgrove Cheese or Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm. Continue east via Longford and Conara, and take the Esk Highway (A4) to St Marys. Nestled below a spectacular rocky outcrop, this town boasts quaint galleries and antique stores that are worth checking out before you head to the fishing port of St Helens. Grab some fresh fish and chips from a fish punt – local favourites include The Blue Shed Restaurant and East Coast Village Providore. Then make a beeline for Binalong Bay – the renowned Bay of Fires extends north from here as far as Musselroe Bay, and you’ll want to set aside the next day to swim, fish, surf or stroll along these magnificent beaches. Cosy Corner offers free camping (you’ll need to be self-sufficient) or there are a number of beach houses, cottages and B&Bs in the area.
