Bicheno, Tasmania

Bicheno is a pretty little fishing town of 640 people, nestled at the base of interesting rock formations and surrounded with beautiful beaches. The local butcher had wallaby sausages in his window and they were also on the menu at the pub today, something I have never seen before and never likely to try.

We are staying at Bicheno East Coast Holiday Park. The sites are a generous size and grassy but they are charging $30 a night instead of the average $20 to $25 we've been paying so far. There is a free camp at Lagoons Beach about 20 kms north of Bicheno.
