Sand, surf, sea, and sun epitomise Bicheno, a pretty fishing town founded on the sea and its bounty. Nearby there is the Governers Island Marine Reserve with fascinating underwater scenery and sea-life. You can see it from a glass-bottomed boat, or get right into it with scuba gear.
The Beachfront at Bicheno affords breath-taking views of Waub's Bay and is ideally located two minutes from the centre of Bicheno township.
Two and a half hours drive north of Hobart, on the Tasman high-way, Bicheno boasts beautiful beaches – with fantastic surf; National Parks, so close you couldn`t possibly turn down a walk in the ancient rainforest – or a chance meeting with the infamous Tasmanian Devil!
Tasmania became an island over 13 000 years ago when the great meltdown caused the land bridge across Bass Strait to break away from mainland Australia. This has enabled Tasmania, especially Bicheno, to accquire its own character and charisma, it is recommended you come and experience it for yourself.
