We headed up to Freycinet for some nice walks and relaxation and hit by chance on staying in Bicheno. Most of the places closer to Freycinet are self catering or posh or both. Bicheno on the other hand is a very sweet little town, with a lovely small harbour and it’s own blowhole.

We had lovely evening and early morning walks around the headlands, enjoying the gorgeous views and these flowers which spiked the air with the smell of honey.

Dinner was at “Pork’s Place”. When in a place like Bicheno it seems best to keep it simple.

We got takeaway fish and chips and ate them while watching the sun set over the bay. Handcut chips and perfectly cooked super crunchy fish. Not bad for under $10.

For dessert Pork’s does these giant icecream cones for $2 – choice of vanilla, strawberry or chocolate. The lady said that chocolate was the runaway favourite but I find it hard to pass up that fake strawberry goodness.

Breakfast was a bit more fancy – at the Blue Edge Bakery in town.

I had these wonderful swiss brown mushrooms on toast.

Really good coffee. Actually all the coffee in Tasmania was pretty great.

Rhubarb and strawberry tart for afters. Very nice short pastry, and not too sweet filling.
