Itinerary

Day 1 – After an early start, brekkie and gear check we head to  Mt William via a scenic route that includes the rich pastoral landscapes of Scottsdale and the tin-mining town of Derby.  We reach the north of the Mt William National Park and begin walking at Boulder Point enjoying views to the north of the Bass Strait Islands. Following lunch on a pristine sandy beach we explore the many secluded beaches tucked between sand dunes, off-shore rocks and separated rocky headlands as we make our way to our night location.  We spend a relaxing evening at Forester Beach Camp in semi-permanent tents sitting on the deck and enjoying the sunset.

Day 2 –After breakfast we head south admiring the expansive view across the coastline and the solitude.  Walking along ridgelines of sand-dunes, one can enjoy views across heath lands and across the ocean to the East.  Exploration of the marsupial lawns often reveals quiet native animals and the many tracks they leave behind.  Lunch is at one of the sheltered coves along the way to Eddystone Point Lighthouse. The afternoon is spent in the seclusion of beaches and coves that lead gradually to afternoon tea at the Bay of Fires lodge.  The evening is spent enjoying a sumptuous dinner at the tranquil Bay of Fires Lodge with its majestic views as you sample some Tasmanian wine and local beer.

Day 3 – Today we  kayak down the winding Anson’s River experiencing the avid bird life, cross the bird rich waters of Anson’s Bay and conclude with a stroll over the dunes at Abbotsbury Peninsula on our way back to the lodge.  An evening walk will allow us to see the peacefulness of the wilderness with possible sightings of wombats, possums or even a Tasmanian Devil.  The night sky is an awesome spectacle from the pristine vantage point of the lodge and its surrounds.

Day 4 – After a leisurely breakfast and possible morning swim or walk we return to our base at Quamby Estate by walking through the Fingal Valley. After a well earned glass of wine and a rest we return to our night lodgings before our flight home the following day.
