Bay of Fires and Freycinet

The east coast of Tasmania is all about spectacular coastlines. We have been really lucky to have sunshine and temperatures which are suited to some long walks. Started at the Bay of Fires with its bright red rocks and whiter than white sand. Evidently it is lichen which causes the red. Next we headed further south to Freycinet National Park with its famous Wineglass Bay. Chose a perfect day for the 11 km Hazards Circuit which heads up and over a saddle along a steep path to Wineglass bay. At the top of the rise you are rewarded with spectacular views. Then on and down to the beach where I was brave enough to have a quick swim. The next section of the Circuit is across to Hazards beach which was calm and had beautiful blue waters. Some areas had the stunning red rocks again. More swimming then on home.
