Freycinet National Park and Bay of Fires

The next morning, we went to Freycinet National Park and walked up to Wineglass Bay. It was a 2.5 hours return track and we did it with a toddler. :-)

 Nearby, Freycinet Marine Farm offered fresh seafood 9am-5pm right from their farm.

Personally, we still prefer fresh and plain oysters, the most with some lemon juice. The garlic scallops was good though. We left Freycinet Marine Park with a dozen of oysters and a pack of scallops. Can never get enough of them.

Next stop was Gala Estate vineyard that we have missed yesterday. We had a non-stop food-hunting road trip yesterday. Gala estate was 16km backtrack from Freycinet National Park's junction, but our baby was in good mood so we did not mind the journey. The wine was awesome, but the friendliness of the host made the whole experience a pleasant one.

After taking a good nap in the hotel, we headed north to explore bay of fires. First we passed by St Mary and St Helen, then we reached Binalong Bay. Bay of fires is the coastline extending from Binalong Bay all the way to Eddystone Point. We were rewarded by stunning views formed by white beaches, blue water and orange-hued granite.

At night in the cabin, we cooked some nice steak and opened a bottle of wine to go with the oysters that we bought from Freycinet Marine Park.
