Bicheno, East Coast Tasmania

Located 176 kilometres south east of Launceston and 182 kilometres north east of Hobart (via the Tasman Highway), Bicheno is known for its excellent fishing, its beautiful white sand beaches with their turquoise waters and its interesting coastal walks which include some superb rocky outcrops and spectacular blowholes.

Things To See

East Coast Natureworld
A Birdlife and Animal Park on the northern side of the town offers an opportunity to see the diverse fauna of the region including Forester kangaroos, Bennett's wallabies, Tasmanian devils, Cape Barren Geese and pelicans.

Diamond Island Nature Reserve
Just off the coast to the north of Bicheno is the Diamond Island Nature Reserve. It is possible to walk across from the mainland at low tide. The island is home to large numbers of fairy penguins. It is a popular walk for visitors.

Grave of Waubedebar
Near the tennis courts is the grave of Waubedebar (after whom Waub's Harbour was named) an Aboriginal woman who saved two white men when their boat was smashed against the rocks during a storm. It is said that snowdrops bloom on her grave every spring.

Rocking Rock
Further down the coast (follow the signs to the south of the town) it is possible to see the town's famous Rocking Rock (a huge 80 tonne piece of granite balanced so that it rocks with the movement of the tide) and the very impressive local blowhole. Be careful! In the right conditions it is very easy to get soaked by the unexpected wave. Tourist Information
