The Bicheno Blowhole is a great little place to stop on a trip along Tasmania’s east coast. On a recent trip with a US based group of photographers, we caught some massive spray as some wild easterly weather set the blowhole right off. The dark grey storm clouds really set the scene too 🙂
I have been here many times – including one very special sunrise shoot there years ago – but these grey conditions and pumping waves were very memorable too.
Bicheno is a great place to spend some time. There is a population of wild penguins that call Bicheno home, and they can be seen randomly around town (be careful driving dusk and dawn!) but the best way to see them is to join one of the penguin viewing tours that go ahead every night. The blowhole too is located right in town, so you can check out the blowhole and grab some lunch before continuing on your travels.
Bicheno isn’t usually part of my photography tours but can often be added in on a trip up the east coast. I do private 3 day tours to both Freycinet and the Bay of Fires which could incorporate a stopover here 🙂
