A week long tour along the North Eastern coast of Tasmania sees us visiting the infamous Blue Stone Bay, Blue Tier and the Bay of Fires.

This tour starts in Hobart with an airport pick up, and for those continuing from the Cradle Mountain Tour, a full day of rest. We drive up to Freycinet Peninsular where we can photograph Wine Glass Bay, and the stunning Blue Stone Bay at Coles Bay.

Latter in the week we move to St Hellens where we have easy access to Blue Tier and the Bay of Fires. Stunning gentle beaches punctuated with orange lichen covered granite boulders, and crystal clear waters. Blue Tier is another amazing forest full of stunning lichens and trees, with deciduous beech forests near by.
