Bicheno is one of the east coast’s best-loved holiday destinations. Aside from swimming, foreshore walks, beachcombing and some of the east coast’s finest fishing, Bicheno offers fantastic wildlife experiences. See Little Penguins return to their burrows on an evening penguin experience, join a guided tour to see Tasmanian devils, and encounter native wildlife and at East Coast Natureworld. Go snorkelling at Waub’s Bay to see abundant marine life or, for experienced scuba divers, explore the Governor Island Marine Reserve. You can also experience the underwater environment from the comfort of the glass bottom boat tour. Or, visit nearby Douglas Apsley National Park to see native forests, waterfalls and dramatic scenery.
Bicheno also has great cafes and restaurants, shops and a huge choice of accommodation. And, if you’re visiting in the spring, don’t miss the chance to taste luscious east coast produce and cuisine at the annual Bicheno Food and Wine Festival—a celebration of the region’s best food and wine, held here each November.
