Ansons Bay: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Bay of Fires

Bay of Fires is a truly special region north of St. Helens on Tasmania's north-east coast with clean white beaches, blue water and granite rocks splashed with orange lichen.
It's not surprising that Lonely Planet named the Bay of Fires as one of the world's hottest travel destinations.
Beach activities and bird-watching are popular in this beautiful reserve. You may even see a pod of dolphins as they cruise along parallel to the beach.
The area is also known for its snorkelling and diving, with scenic reefs, corals, underwater caves and abundant sea life.
The Bay of Fires Conservation Area offers beach-side camping and the elevated sites amongst the trees have amazing views of the coast and sea. There are camping grounds along a 13-kilometre section of road at the southern end of the conservation area, approached via St Helens.
The bay was named by Captain Tobias Furneaux in 1773 in response to the many Aboriginal fires he saw burning on its shore.

Mt William National Park

Mt William National Park on Tasmania's north-east coast has long beaches and is an ideal place to see a variety of abundant wildlife.
Keep an eye out for the large Tasmanian Forester kangaroo as well as the more common Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. You may even spot a Tasmanian devil or two and in the summer you're likely to see echidnas foraging for ants.
A walk along the pristine empty beaches will captivate you with more than 100 species of birdlife. In the coastal heaths are several species of honeyeaters including the tawny-crowned and crescent honeyeater. Other heathland species include the superb blue wren, firetail finch and the kookaburra.
There are camping areas, shelters and gas barbecues at Stumpys Bay in the north and also near Eddystone Point in the south.
Access to the southern end of the park and Eddystone Lighthouse is via the unsealed road to Ansons Bay.
Mt William National Park is around a two-hour drive north-east of Launceston.
