Binalong Bay, Tasmania

Another trip we did whilst staying at St. Helens was to Binalong Bay a small hamlet at the southern end of the Bay of Fires.  Mostly a holiday place with a beach or two.

This Statue has always been there since I can remember.
My husband and I once pitched a hired tent just beyond the sign in the green grass on a very hot summers day.  We got sunburnt and had to pack up and go home, that was in 70's, inside the tent was too hot and no where else for shelter from the sun or heat.  We never went tenting after that :)

More orange lichens at Binalong Bay on the East Coast of Tasmania.

  1. Lo primero que llamó mi atención es esa estatúa tan interesante, pero lo que más me ha sorprendido los bellos paisajes que esas piedras intensifican.

    Muy buenos los encuadres y sus respectivas composiciones.

    No me cansaría nunca de fotografíar un lugar como este.

    Besos

  2. LOVE the scenery. That statue isn't really to my taste - but doesn't need to be either.
    Sunburn can be incredibly painful can't it?

    1. Thanks.
      Not my cuppa tea either that statue, but seeing it was done years ago it's ok.
      Well I can't remember the sunburn from that time being too painful. I normally go very brown if I've been in the sun too much and my ancestors come from Ireland mainly and England, however I believe there is supposed to be Spanish blood way back but we the family haven't been able to prove it. I guess a DNA test would.

  4. The red on the rocks is beautiful. I guess it wasn’t so hot as the last time you were there!

    1. Statue is a good one, different.
      Wouldn't tent myself now either.

  6. Love your photos and the rocks are amazing. I used to like camping in the tent, but gave it up after a very wet weekend away. I think you have to have perfect weather to enjoy camping in a tent.

    1. Oh I agree with you about tenting, fun when fine but not when wet.

  7. I really doubt a a statue like that would be erected today. Even in campervan or caravan, bad weather can spoil a holiday and you don't want it so hot you can't really do anything.

    1. Should there wouldn't be today, it would cause an uproar, same if they took it down today.
      Weather plays a big part in a holiday, we have been to Cairns a lot of times and the last two it rained often which put a damper on things.

    1. They have had her painted different colours over the years, not bright but neutral and once when visiting they had painted her bikini red.

  11. I find the statue amusing-- showing the town has a sense of humor. Art it isn't, but... how many welcome signs are?

  12. Beautiful boulders, and the lichen, pure orange.

  13. That statue, wonder how many men want photo taken of them beside it? Did you tell us in another post that a place was called Bay of Fires because of that orange/red lichen? That lichen is amazing color, we have some here that is yellow, but it is mostly grey. (We have stone mountains or monadnocks, where you can see lots of lichen. )
