Bay of Fires Tasmania, SP194wa

by Neal Pritchard

The Bay of Fires is located on Tasmania’s East Coast. Its unusual name was given to the area by Captain Tobias Furneaux, in 1773, when he noticed numerous fires along the coast. This led him to believe that the country was densely populated. Abundant evidence of this occupation by Aboriginal people can be seen along the coast today.
