For those with a love of the sea, saltwater and freshwater fly fishing tours are available, or if you prefer to be under the water the Bicheno Dive Centre offers scuba diving lessons and equipment hire, with two dive boats operating daily.

Bicheno has many walking tracks and lookouts that offer spectacular views and Douglas Apsley National Park and Freycinet National Park are both within a 20 minute drive.

Families are well catered for in Bicheno with a range of activities including Penguin tours, and a local wildlife park that is home to many Australian animals such as wombats, possums, kangaroos and emus. The Sea Life Centre is within walking distance from Bicheno Blue Haven and has an exhibition of live Tasmanian fish, seahorses and many other surprises. It also includes a touch pool for children to handle a range of underwater creatures.

The main town centre has a range of craft shops, an art gallery, bakery, cafes, restaurants and many hidden treasures that are worth exploring at your leisure. If you want to e-mail friends or search the internet during your stay there is an Online Access Centre located in the main town centre.

The East Coast is also home to many of Tasmania’s fine vineyards which are well worth visiting.
