You will be transported from Launceston in an air-conditioned forward-facing 2WD vehicle.
Depart from Launceston in the morning, head out into the northern section of Mount William National park to begin the Bay of Fires beach walk at the northern end of Musselroe Bay. Walk from the remote coastal conservation area of Musselroe Bay to Boulder Point, predominantly on the sand. The incredibly scenic coastline of deserted white-sand beaches punctuated by windswept headlands, sheltered lagoons and estuaries.
Later head back to our accommodation to unpack, enjoy pre-dinner nibbles followed by a two-course meal. Overnight accommodation at Icena Farm House
Head off for the day’s beach walk from Boulder Point to Deep Creek in Mt William National Park. From its long beaches to its teeming wildlife; from its unique history to its abundant plant life, Mt William National Park is a place of constant fascination.
Today we explore Boulder Point, Cobbler Rocks and Cod Bay finishing at Deep Creek.
Finish the day at Eddystone Point with a visit to the impressive pink granite lighthouse built in 1889.
Begin our walk today at Deep Creek and head south to beautiful Anson’s Bay. Bird life is rich and varied, with nearly 100 species occurring here. Heathland species include the superb blue wren, flame, dusk and scarlet robin. Being a coastal park, Mt. William is also an excellent area for observing sea birds.
Head inland for our final day of walking. This 11km circuit showcases four different distinct walking environments; river, forest, foreshore and wildflowers. The River-Forest section travels that through a variety of landscapes including tidal flats, river reserve and forests. There is also a Wildflower Reserve which includes a 50 hectare area of heath, wetland, sedgeland and woodland.
From here we head back toward Launceston with an expected drop off time of 5.30pm.
