Tasmania Road Trip: Bicheno to St. Helens

After the amazing sunrise we experienced in Bicheno, we hit the road again. Today’s drive was a rather short one, only some 70 kilometers north along the Great Eastern Drive.

As we had some time, we first stopped at the Scamander Conservation Area.

Well, what made us stop there was the coffee truck conveniently placed on the road side. We got our latte-to-go and walked over to the beach.

Scamander is a little beach town, popular for its long, pristine beaches and fantastic views of the ocean, swimming and surfing opportunities.


St. Helens

We arrived in St. Helens, our next overnight destination, by noon. Just a few kilometers north lies the famous Bay of Fires, which we were planning to visit in the afternoon.

But first we stopped at the little beach town of Binalong Bay, located on the Southern tip of the Bay of Fires.

The beaches again were amazing. White sand, crystal blue water, blue skies.

If we hadn’t known were were actually in one of the southernmost points on the Australian continent, we would have guessed we were somewhere in the tropics.
