Bicheno is on the East Coast of Tasmania about 60 kilometres from Lake Leake, where I am staying with my sister.
My first impression of Bicheno a couple of years ago was what a pretty coastal village it is and my opinion hasn’t changed – even though the weather was far from pleasant this time around.
This is how I first viewed it
And here’s how it looked yesterday –
On the way home we stopped at the Lookout over Moulting Lagoons which has been relocated off the winding Great Eastern Drive to Devil’s Corner Winery, which you might be interested to know is owned by Brown Brothers, who are well known for their magnificent wines from north-eastern Victoria. Too cold to get out of the car for a tasting today so we’re saving that up for a better day….
And here’s one I prepared earlier – on a sunny day about 3 years ago!
The vines are all winter bare
As are the walnut trees at this large plantation at Cranbrook, south of Bicheno
Although Bicheno has a dump point it is not a designated RV Friendly Town, but well worth a day visit or a stop over for lunch overlooking the water. Not far from Bicheno and about 400 metres south of the turn off to Coles Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula is The Pondering Frog, which is Tea Rooms with an RV Stopover for fully self-contained vehicles. Call in for a snack and stay for the night!
Let’s support these people who provide facilities for us happy campers!

Tassie is a tourist’s paradise. So much to see and do – and the produce is divine. I look forward to returning soon. At the moment I am enjoying arm chair travelling – thank you Rosemary!! Your travels far and wide in our wonderful country should inspire all of us to follow suit.

Hi Sue, how lovely to hear from you. I’m in Tassie until April 2017 so if you are coming down before then be sure to let me know. It must be time for a girl’s lunch 😉
