Our mid week “outing” this week was to take advantage of the perfectly clear weather on Thursday and drive to Eddystone Point Lighthouse and back “home” via Gladstone and Weldborough. On the way to the Lighthouse we turned off along the Southern side of Ansons Bay to have a look at Policemans Point.
Policemans Point is the Southern tip of Ansons Bay and has at the end of the road a Campground managed by Tas Parks but with no camping fees. We may well bring the van here before we leave Tassie next year; it has separate camping spots among the vegetation and a small toilet block in the centre. You can walk along the coastline South from here as this is the Northern end of the Bay of Fires Coastal Walk which can be taken as a day guided walk and takes you down to Binalong Bay, just North of St Helens.
The campground is to the left of the access road here with campspots right alongside where we are parked, and scattered throughout the fenced area.
