Wonderful, perfect place to explore the rock pools and enjoy some lunch. The views are amazing and the rock formations are picture perfect.

Great place to make a quick stop to see the blow hole. You don't need to spend long there but there are lots of rock pools you can walk around. It gets very cold so rug up! Plenty of parking.

We walked from the Lobster Shack around the foreshore path which meandered in and out the bush and across the rocks, stopping to take many photos of the huge waves crashing against the rocks. As it was a windy day, the waves crashing through the...More

This is a great blowhole, its only a short walk from the car park, and an easy walk over some rocks. You can take photos from a safe distance or walk right up to the blowhole where you can feel the power of the water.

This is a great free attraction that is best towards high tide. Bonus is the penguins and seals that live in the area. Watch the wet rocks as they can be slippery. Good also at sunset for photos.

I have visited the blowhole at Bicheno many times, in all weather and in all seasons of the year. It never disappoints. It's a must see destination for all interstate visitors and so accessible. The rocks are very easy to manage and you can even...More

What a great morning, so many people get too close to the spray, sometimes small and sometimes large. Lots of rock pools to explore as well.

Water jet goes several metres into the air with a good swell, need to be careful when walking across the rocks

We ttook a walk to the Bicheno Blowhole. Two students were having fun with the blowhole. They would stand where the blowhole would wet people. They had so much fun! Eventually it was our turn and I was after taking pictures. It was amazing! This...More

It was so cold the day we were there. But the blow was pretty un-spectacular owing to low tide. We did catch a few photos of the blow; however. I would recommend taking a look when the tide is higher.

No, sorry. They're a good few hours apart. Bicheno is up the east coast and Tasman Arch is on the peninsula in the other direction, toward Port Arthur.
