Tasmania’s beautiful Binalong Bay for superb beach holidays

Binalong Bay has its roots as a traditional fishing village but, due to its astounding coastal beauty, Binalong Bay has adapted to cater to the many visitors that travel to the area each year. With a good proportion of holiday rentals, cafes and bars available, Binalong Bay makes an excellent choice for your holiday accommodation.

Seeing the sights

Located to the south of the island, Binalong Bay is considered to be the Gateway to the Bay of Fire, a world renowned location in Tasmania which was named after aboriginal inhabitants who used to light fires on the beach. The Bay of Fire is famed for its red rocks, sparkling aqua blue waters and powder fine white sands.

But Binalong Bay is not only known for its famous neighbour. Home to one of the prettiest beaches in the area, which makes for idyllic coast side walks, and a small harbour, Binalong Bay is a delight in its own right.

Many holiday makers come to Binalong Bay for a relaxing beach holiday and find the most important decision is securing their dream holiday accommodation. Fortunately holiday rentals in Binalong Bay cater to all budgets from holiday deals and self-catering accommodation to luxury holiday villas and family-friendly accommodation.

Beyond the relaxing way of life that Binalong Bay invites you to revel in, the area’s traditional fishing village past is not so historic and remains evident with fishing trips providing a fun day out.

When the need to be active strikes, a short walk to the Bay of Fires is a must do on most holiday maker’s itineraries and to trek the entire route head from Binalong Bay through Ansons Bay up to Eddystone Point. For those in need of more outdoor adventure there is days if not weeks of fun available exploring the many National Parks in and around the area.

Scuba diving and whale spotting are also amongst some of the most popular activities to participate in during your holiday in Binalong Bay, but there is no denying that one of the biggest draws of the area is the unpopulated and pristine beaches that can be hard to find elsewhere.

When to visit

The moderate temperature of Binalong Bay makes it great for enjoying the beach without the intensity of the scorching hot sun that beats down on mainland Australian.

Summer temperatures, during December to April tend to range from 20 to 22 degrees Celsius and can drop to around 13 degrees Celsius in winter. Despite the cooler winter temperatures, the weather remains sufficiently warm for pleasant outdoor activities and holiday makers won’t feel the need to spend their time taking shelter in their holiday villa. However, do be sure to pack an extra layer for evening wear.

October and November are the best months to visit Binalong Bay for those with an interest in whale spotting.

Getting there

As is often the case with getting to locations in Tasmania, a better variety of airlines, flight times and prices are usually available by opting to fly into mainland Australia first and arrange a second onward flight to Tasmania.

Flights from the UK into Sydney and Melbourne are well placed for making the hop to Tasmania and Hobart is a popular airport for getting to Binalong Bay.

Airlines flying to Australia from the UK include Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Virgin. For those seeking a holiday deal, considering Middle Eastern and Asian airlines can reduce the flight cost as well as allowing you a free stop over if you book accommodation for the night in their hub city before continuing on to Australia.

Within Tasmania, car hire is a great way for getting to Binalong Bay, which is a beautiful 3 to 4 hour coastal drive. For those wanting to arrive closer to their holiday apartment, Launceston has an airport which is served from the mainland and is a shorter two hour drive away.

Stunning Property and Hosts

5 of 5
We can not speak more highly of this amazing beach property. It was just perfect for our family of four plus guests. Facilities were superb with modern appliances and it was freshly renovated throughout. The views from the front rooms and balconies were superb - better than the pictures! Our hosts were amazing, welcomed us with lights on, champagne and choccies to start our stay - then even brought us supplies from St Helens! We were there for Christmas and could walk to the beach or relax in the enclosed grassy back yard. We also found some great bushwalks nearby to take in the magnificent views! We had a perfect Christmas break! ??

A fabulous house

5 of 5
Gull Cottage is a beautiful house. Home from home. The views are stunning, the kitchen is large, well equipped and easy to cook in and the beds are dreamily comfortable. St Helens felt to us well off the tourist route and all the better for it. The beaches on The Bay of Fires are to die for and don't miss Peron Beach. You'll feel like you're the first to discover it. Buy lobster or fish and chips from the Lobster Shack, go fishing with Michael for a great fun afternoon, stock up from the fantastic supermarket (better than most London ones!), and relax on the deck, if you're lucky together with the shy Wallaby. 5 nights not nearly enough. Wish we'd had much longer to enjoy. Thank you, Trish, for all your help before we arrived. We'd travel all that way to stay again. Perhaps we will!
