Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires were named the world’s top travel destination by Lonely Planet guide.
Similar to Bicheno, the sands are powder fine and white, several renowned snorkeling and fishing spots and surfing beaches are abundant here.
The red lichen- splashed rocky headlands are an eye catching contrast to the water and sand. You never tire of views like this. Mike and I went swimming but it was very cold. We camped on the beach at one of the many free camps in the area and only moved on because the weather turned cold and wet. We had a fire each night. Magic!
As you drive back into the township of St Helens you can pop in to the local oyster “man” and pick up a dozen un-shucked oysters for $8.00 a dozen.
From St Helens the road takes you inland and once again we are back in rich farmland and areas of think forests.
