We arrived at Bicheno late afternoon on Day 4. It was a long day and a long drive! Bicheno is a town on the east coast of Tasmania about 185 km’s north east of Hobart. We were booked into Wintersun Gardens Motel for the night. Our room was very comfortable and it appeared that the bathroom had been recently renovated as it was lovely, fresh and modern! The motel is surrounded by the most beautiful roses! Here’s our car parked out the front of our room – No. 11. This was taken the next morning!
Here are some pics of a rose in the garden bed outside our room (see the garden bed to the left of the car in the pic above). They are photo’s of the same rose but I couldn’t decide which one to include, so guess what – you’re getting both! 😉
We settled in to our room but didn’t have long before we needed to head off for our Bicheno Penguin Tour. The Bicheno Penguin Tour bus picked us up from a bus stop right near our motel and off we went! Unfortunately, no cameras were allowed on the tour (for good reason!) so I have no photo’s to share with you but I do have a video for you that shows something similar to what we saw. It was fabulous! I loved every moment of it! They are such cute and intriguing little creatures!
After the tour we were starving hungry so after a quick freshen up we headed to the Beachfront Bicheno Tavern Bistro/Restaurant and had the most scrummy meal!! We only just made it in time before they closed orders. Thank goodness we made it because it was the only place open in town where we could get dinner (so we were told)!
Sadly, we didn’t have much time in Bicheno and not enough time for a good explore! It is definitely a place I loved the feel of and the look of and would SO love to go back another time for a longer stay. The next morning we had a quick drive around and I snapped some photo’s before we headed off to spend the day at Freycinet National Park before spending the night at St Marys.
The next ‘Tassie Trip’ post will include photo’s taken in the Freycinet National Park. What an absolutely stunning place! I’m not sure if I’ll have all the photos edited in time for next Wednesday as there are SO many of them! I may need to split the post into two or three! I will know better when I’ve had a good look through them all! 😉
