Belle Vue Beach House was a classic Tasmanian crayfisherman's shack that, until its recent extensive renovations, has remained untouched for the past 60 odd years.
Perfectly positioned opposite the famous Binalong Bay swimming beach, the breathtaking, uninterrupted views are truly the most pleasing and rewarding experiences that this unique beachside environment has to offer.
There is no need to get in the car and drive to where the main attraction is, nor is there any need to scale great heights to accommodation at the top of the hills to see what is on offer, Belle Vue Beach House has it laid out right in front you, all within easy walking distance, even the Moresco Restaurant for fine food and coffee.
With its north-facing orientation from the expansive deck, you can soak up the hypnotic views of the Bay of Fires, famous for its endless private bays of explosive coloured boulders, pure white sand and pristine ocean.
Within an easy 10-minute drive from the east coast's largest town, St Helens, Binalong Bay is the perfect place to unwind and forget about the outside world as time beats to a different drum here.
Recently topping its list of the world's most emerging destinations for 2009, international guidebook ' Lonely Planet' nominated this location as one of the world's top spots and stated; "this is the secret edge of Tasmania, laid out like a pirate's treasure map of perfect beach after sheltered cove, all fringed with forest . . . now is the time to visit as the crowds are sure to follow!"
Belle Vue Beach House is positioned perfectly to offer you quality interior furnishings and finishes to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable.
The front outside deck, which features the best views of the Bay Of Fires, offers substantial opportunity for entertaining and relaxing while taking in all the bay has to offer. Some treats may catch you by surprise. Such as large pods of dolphins, 40 or more, accompnied by seals, coming within metres of the shoreline in their pursuit of a feed of the ever present 'blackback' salmon. Even Humpback, Southern Right and Orca whales can be watched in season right from our deck on their migrations north and south, generally hanging around and playing for days on end. There is also a secret population of fairy pengiuns living their lives right under our noses. But please don't tell anyone!
For fishing enthusiasts, the area is known as the 'Game Fishing Capital' of Tasmania with large schools of salmon, tuna and even marlin on the menu. For fly-fishing enthusiasts, take your choice of ocean, estuary or freshwater pursuits with some of Tasmanias best trout waters within an easy drive.
