This place has to have the cleanest and clearest water I have ever seen. I enjoyed swimming here even if the water is a bit cold. We also saw penguin's on a guided tour at night. Spectacular place.

Bay of fires is very pretty but we didn't really see what all the fuss was about. Maybe if we had of had incredible sunsets it would have lit up or something but just seems like a lit of hype about nothing really

We went there on a cloudy day and the effect was diminished. What I would like to say is that the lady at St Helen's Info centre deserves a 5, even on a rainy day

Stunning orange rocks. The rocks at Binalong Bay were great and provided an entree to The Gardens (about 15 minutes further up the coast) which were far more expansive and with more intense colours. Kids had an awesome time rock hopping and enjoying the views.
