The Bay of Fires needs few words.

There are some places where it’s best to just let the photos do the talking. This is one such place.

Situated on the north east coast of Tasmania, the Bay of Fires is a region of white beaches, blue water and these incredible rock formations (orange-hued granite) in which the colour is produced by a lichen.

We spent the morning there climbing over the rocks, wandering the beaches and being mesmerized by the colours.
