Take the drive to The Gardens to get the best views of the orange rocks and work your way back stopping at the beaches on the way. You need to drive till you come to a dead end at the holiday cottages at The Gardens....More

We didn't take the longer route to The Gardens, but were quite happy with what we saw at Binalong Bay and the Bay of Fires rocks there. The beach here is just beautiful, with clear blue water and white sand - quite a few people...More

Amazing part of the world. White sand and crystal clear water. Better than Whitehaven in the Whitsundays. And so many beaches to explore. Stay a few days or longer here. Lots of beach shacks to rent or cool camp spots all along here.

This place is really fantastic with seaview & the rocks formation is just wonderful. Non stop taking photos & videos. Hoping around from stones to stones & rocks to rocks. Windy & can be chilling when the breeze is strong.

We enjoyed a 4 hour eco tour around the bay of fires. The skipper was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a brilliant view of the coloured rocks from the boat and even saw a whale and calf.

Went on Christmas holiday, not too crowded. Water was really clear, sand was smooth and a bit chill to swim in. Gave four stars because I thought Wineglass Bay was better red rock.

Have been here a few times and it never fails to amaze me. The beautiful colours- the white beaches, the amazing blues of sea and sky and, of course, the 'red' rocks. There are so many little coves to explore, rocks to climb and great...More
