Today we are sharing one of our favourite hidden gems to visit. A sleepy hidden place off the main tourist route.
We travel extensively and have made it a priority to travel with our kids. However this quaint little place remains one of our favourite places to visit as a family.
We stayed at an air bnb with the beach as our backyard. And despite Tasmania’s very cold temperatures in April, our boys still had a swim every day for the week. Our boys would swim all year round in nearly any temperature.
This sleepy little town is perfect for the slow life. Simple living costal walks and rock pool exploring.
Lifes simplest pleasure can be enjoyed in this beautiful town and it should be a must visit on any familys travel list.
Nature & Wildlife Areas
We were the only ones in this park at the time we visited and our boys got to get up close and personal with the animals which they loved. This wildlife and ecology park sprawls over 160 acres of parkland and lagoon. We got to see Tasmanian Devils, Tasmanian Tigers (Snakes & cats of course), Quolls, Wombats, Cape barren Geese, Eagles, Owls, Bettongs, Pademelons, Cockatoos, Native & Exotic Parrots and much more. Our kids loved this visit and took up the best part of a day visiting.
Points of Interest & Landmarks
Our accommodation was walking distance to the blowhole and made for a great little walk along the coast. We loved this beautiful place and the boys loved seeing the water crash up against the rocks.
The surrounding beaches of Bicheno are a must. We adore this place and our kids are happiest with sand between the toes and water lapping at their feet. They did declare that Bincheno had the best rock pools ever and that is a big statement coming from them.
We ate in most nights. We love cooking and with a fantastic supermarket in town we got to stock up on all our favourite supplies. We did have a couple of nights eating out.
We love seafood and were lucky enough to eat at this low-key restaurant and over look the bay. This place was pure magic and we loved it.
