Located north of the Freycinet Peninsula, Bicheno sits on Tasmania’s beautiful east coast and is a family seaside holiday town with lots to see and do, good accommodation, excellent fishing and close to wildlife.  Offshore, the Governor Island Marine Reserve has some of the best diving spots in Australia, with kelp-covered reefs and spectacular sponge gardens. This water wonderland can also be experienced by glass-bottomed  boat.  There’s plenty to do on dry land as well, with popular penguin tours that let you get up close – really close – to fairy penguins at dusk and scenic walks to Rocking Rock, the Blowhole and along the sandbar to Diamond Island Nature Reserve.  The local wildlife park also has lots of animals to meet up close, including kangaroos, Tasmanian devils and pelicans.  More natural wonders can be found at the nearby Douglas-Apsley National Park and Freycinet National Park.
