Deserted beaches in Tasmania

IMG_9528The beaches here are wonderful and you have them all to yourself most of the time. Washed up behind me is a large piece of kelp.


Sand dunes up at the area north of us known as ‘The Gardens’. Tourists do flock here but do you see any?


We love to take our friends up here so they can sink in the sand too.


This weekend at Scamander Beach we picked up stones that have been tumbled by the sea.IMG_9531

I could not resist adding this perfect square black stone to the collection.

This area is known as Diana’s Basin close to the beach of Beaumaris.IMG_9525

Here at Beaumaris the sand is yellowish but smooth and clean and scattered with sea shells.


I have to add our local Binalong Bay beach, up here the sand colour changes to white, all along the beaches of the Bay of Fires the sand is pure quartz.


Everyone has seen the wonderful lichen covered rocks so I will just add one photo of rocks in our Binalong Bay.

If you are lucky and come at the right time, you won’t have to pay to swim with dolphins, two evenings this week (it was still light) people were swimming in the bay with a pod of dolphins.

        The day we went to Scamander we had just had a swim in a pool and dropped into the beach for a walk.
