Bay of Fires

Larapuna/Bay of Fires could easily have taken its name from the fiery orange lichen that lights up almost every granite headland along this 29km-long sweep of powder-white sand and crystal-clear seas (though it was named for the fires of Aboriginal people sighted by Tobias Furneaux in 1773).
