Bicheno is a fishing town situated on Tasmania’s North West Coast. Only 2 hours west of Launceston, and about 2 hours North of Hobart, Bicheno is in the middle of the coast, so it is a perfect central location to base yourself while you explore the surrounding area. Alternatively, Bicheno is the ideal place to relax and unwind, so you could always stay and enjoy the amazing beaches and idyllic scenery. Whatever your plans, Bicheno won’t leave you disappointed.
Bicheno is all about the water. The golden beaches are the perfect spot to sit back and unwind or get wet and dive into the beautiful blue waters. For an even better experience in the water, scuba dive or snorkel inside underwater caves and greet the local fish life, for what is commonly accepted as some of the best scuba diving in the world. If that doesn't appeal to you, take a boat trip and meet the local marine and birdlife from the dry ship deck. Back on dry land, the food is exquisite and the accommodation suits everyone. If you are just passing through there are plenty of budget hotel and motel options. For those looking for a longer stay, luxury hotels and resorts are also available.
The local Wildlife Park has kangaroos, pelicans and even Tasmanian devils lurking within their local habitat. If you are using Bicheno as a launching pad, St Marys and St Helens are only a short drive north, while the amazing Freycinet National Park is only a short drive to the south. The fascinating historical town of Swansea is slightly off the coast, and always worth checking out. Once your done with Swansea, come back to the coast and take the famous walk to Wineglass Bay, one of the worlds most beautiful beaches. The Douglas-Aspley National Park is also nearby, so anything you want to see or do from Bicheno is well within reach. The convenient location is great for families, who will also love the fantastic self contained apartments and cottages on offer. Bicheno has the accommodation, the food and the attractions to satisfy every holiday maker.
