    Day 1

    Launceston - 13km, 5hrs approx.

    Today pickup from the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston at 7.45am for an 8am departure. We head out into the northern section of Mount William National park to begin the Bay of Fires beach walk at the northern end of Musselroe Bay. We walk from the remote coastal conservation area of Musselroe Bay to Boulder Point, predominantly on the sand. The incredibly scenic coastline of deserted white-sand beaches punctuated by windswept headlands, sheltered lagoons and estuaries.

    Following on from this we head off for an easy one hour return walk to the top of Mt William. From the peak (216m) in clear weather, you can enjoy extensive views over the coast and inland, while to the north you’ll see some of the Bass Strait islands.

    We then head back to our accommodation to unpack and here we enjoy pre-dinner nibbles followed by a two-course meal prepared by your guides.

    Day 2

    Boulder Point to Deep Creek - 13km, 5hrs approx.

    After breakfast and lunch making we head off for the day’s beach walk from Boulder Point to Deep Creek in Mt William National Park.

    From its long beaches to its teeming wildlife; from its unique history to its abundant plant life, Mt William National Park is a place of constant fascination.

    This section is one of the more remote and untouched along the trail. Today we explore Boulder Point, Cobbler Rocks and Cod Bay finishing at Deep Creek. Today’s trek includes some sand walking and there are some rocky areas around the headlands to navigate, but the scenery is well worth the effort.

    We finish the day at Eddystone Point with a visit to the impressive pink granite lighthouse built in 1889.

    After the day’s walk we head back to our accommodation for well-earned pre-dinner nibbles followed by a fabulous two-course meal prepared by your guides.

    Day 3

    Deep Creek to beautiful Anson’s Bay - 14km, 6hrs approx.

    After breakfast and lunch making we begin our beach walk today at Deep Creek and head south to beautiful Anson’s Bay. Bird life is rich and varied, with nearly 100 species occurring here. The extensive coastal heaths favour various species of honey-eater including the tawny-crowned and crescent honey-eater. Other heathland species include the superb blue wren, flame, dusk and scarlet robin. Being a coastal park, Mt. William is an excellent area for observing sea birds. Gulls, terns, gannets, and albatrosses can be seen, as well as both the pied and sooty oystercatcher. After the day’s walk we head back to our accommodation for well-earned pre-dinner antipasto followed by a fabulous two-course meal prepared by your guides.
