Enjoy a stay in a pristine seaside holiday town. Fishing has been the life-blood of Bicheno with the fishing fleet landing good bounties of crayfish, abalone, scallops and trevally. Bicheno is also a popular tourist destination due to its mild climate and expanses of white sandy beaches.
Bicheno is a great place to base yourself if you’re planning to cruise up and down the east coast in a motorhome or campervan from AutoRent Hertz as it has plenty of caravan parks with modern facilities. Bicheno has a range of essential shops including a supermarket, chemist, bakery and service station.
If you get your timing right you can also catch the Bicheno Blow Hole in fine form or if you’re looking to chill out for an afternoon there are some fantastic vineyards just south of Bicheno on the road to Swansea.
