On the Road Tasmania - - News -

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.
