Where is it? Starts at Boulder Point, 152km north-east of Launceston, Tas.

Strap on your hiking boots for this glorious four-day guided trek, which skirts the coastline abutting Mt William National Park on Tassie’s north-east coast. Your first two full days are spent ambling along squeaky white-sand beaches alongside the bright blue waters of Bass Strait and through coastal scrubland, while for your first night you’ll be snuggled up in a sleeping bag in semi-permanent tents at Forester Beach.

As you get closer to your destination, the eco-friendly Bay of Fires Lodge, large granite boulders covered with bright-orange lichen decorate the beach. The walk culminates with a day of relaxation exploring beaches and bays around the lodge, which are thriving with wildlife.
