This is the view from the deck of the Shack.

It is a simple architect designed cottage, overlooking the beach, at The Gardens precinct at the Bay of Fires. It features a wide deck that provides 180 degree views over the beach just 50 metres away.

As reported in the SMH, the Bay of Fires was voted one of the world’s top holiday destination by Lonely Planet.

The Bay is described by Lonely Planet as “a castaway bay” with a 29 kilometres ribbon of sea and surf spooling out from the old whaling town of St Helens, on Tasmania’s north-east coast.

“White beaches of hourglass-fine sand, Bombay Sapphire sea, an azure sky – and nobody,” the guide says.

The Times Online further report Lonely Planet’s findings about the Bay of Fires:-

“This is the secret edge of Tasmania, laid out like a pirate’s treasure map of perfect beach after sheltered cove, all fringed with forest. It’s not long since the Bay of Fires came to international attention, and the crowds are bound to flock. Now is the time to visit.”

Main attractions are the beaches and beautiful blue bays.

To see the best of the Bay of Fires the best time to visit is in summer. Winter is a lot colder but is full of surprises and has its own beauty.
