Binalong Bay in the Bay of Fires. Just after this shot the sky went red and the water too. It was quite a scene. Sunset was about 8pm – and I rushed to the location by 5.30pm! DOH! But hey, it was interesting. I even climbed a big rock and then brained my 5D on the rock – luckily my tripod plate took the hit!
Binalong Bay is a small coastal town in north-eastern Tasmania, situated at the southern end of the Bay of Fires. Originally a fishing hamlet, the town is now a village with a large proportion of holiday dwellings. It has a beach, small harbour (known as “the gulch”) and restaurant in Angasi.
<i><b>Bay of Fires</b>
The Bay of Fires is a bay on the northeastern coast of Tasmania in Australia, extending from Binalong Bay to Eddystone Point. The bay was given its name in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux, who saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches.
The Bay of Fires is a region of white beaches, blue water and orange-hued granite (the color of which is actually produced by a lichen). The northern section of the bay is part of Mount William National Park; the southern end is a conservation area. A wide range of activities can be pursued in the Bay of Fires area, including camping, beach activities, boating, bird watching, fishing, swimming, surfing and walking.
