Welcome to The Gardens in the Bay of Fires
The recent nomination by Lonely Planet of Tasmania's Bay of Fires as one of the hottest travel destinations on earth has prompted me to start this blog.
I grew up in Tasmania, and visited that area many times. Friends of ours had a shack at St Helens, and my parents had always wanted to live around there, when they retired. The opportunity came along for them to get a block of land at The Gardens so they bought it without even seeing the block - how could you go wrong?
This is the view from the back of the house they built, looking to the north at the granite headland nearby. There's crayfish and abalone on those rocks and its a popular fishing place as well.
