There will be a gear check and introductions before we journey to Mt William National Park via a scenic route includes the rich pastoral landscapes of Scottsdale and the tin mining town of Derby. We reach the northern part of the National Park and begin walking at Stumpys Bay. Views to the north include the Bass Strait Islands (Flinders, Cape Barren etc). Lunch is enjoyed on one of the many pristine beaches accompanied by native birds, interesting shell and marine artefacts.
Many secluded beaches are tucked between sand dunes and off shore rocks and separated by rocky headlands. The evening is spent at the Forester
Beach camp in the twin share rooms. Meals are usually spent relaxing on the deck and enjoying the surrounds of the dune swale location. Accommodation: Forester Beach Camp.

magnificent coastline colour and solitude. Walking along ridgelines of sand dunes one can enjoy views across heathlands and across the ocean to the east. Exploration of the marsupial lawns often reveals the quiet native animals and the many tracks they leave behind. Lunch is at one of the sheltered coves along the way to Eddystone Point Lighthouse. The afternoon is spent in the seclusion of beach and coves that lead gradually to afternoon tea and the Bay of Fires Lodge. The evening is spent relaxing at the majestic Bay of Fires Lodge, in twin share or double rooms. Meals are prepared by your guides and accompanied by fine
Tasmania wine and beer. The library can be a source of reference material or just light reading as well as games for the evening. Accommodation: Bay of Fires Lodge.

Day 3
Kayaking and enjoying the area. Based at the Lodge, the day is yours to decide how you would like to enjoy the area. Rise early and experience the many native birds accompanying the dawn, sleep late and be woken by the aromas of a hot cooked breakfast and freshly brewed coffee. During the day you can choose to kayak down the Ansons River and experience the riparian ecology of this winding river. Cross the bird rich waters of Ansons Bay
and conclude with a stroll over the dunes of Abbotsbury Peninsula to the lodge. Other options for this day include fishing, snorkelling in the marine nursery, exploring the shell coves or generally enjoying the surrounding of the lodge. In the evening you can go for a walk; and depending on the weather you may encounter wombats, wallabies, forester kangaroos, possums or even an echidna. The night sky is an awesome spectacle from the pristine vantage point of the Lodge and its surrounds. Your accommodation is again at the Lodge. Accommodation: Bay of Fires Lodge.
