East Coast of Tasmania

July 2010. Tour of the east coast of Tasmania. Started at Launceston, making our way to Bay of Fires and spending the night in the tiny town of Bicheno. Onwards to Freycinet National Park to take in the breathtaking sight of the Wineglass Bay. Lastly, proceeded to Port Arthur - historic site for a past convict settlement, ending the trip in Hobart.

Cataract Gorge - a little gem only 15minutes walk from Launceston city centre. We stumbled upon it by accident but it was a good surprise nonetheless.

The orange-hued granite rocks due to lichen (fungus/algae symbiotic organism). The bay did not get its name from the rocks much to my surprise. It is from when its western discoverer first sighted the fires of the aboriginal people.
