Welcome to Bicheno

That’s bish-en-no for the westerners. It’s a little town on the east side of Tasmania. Not many services really, just a handful of restraunts, a kick ass backpackers hostel, and a dive shop. All the essentails really. Here’s a pic of me surveying the coastal landscape while finding my first Australian geocache.

But really the best part about Bicheno was the incredibile scenery nearby! Check out this great view of a vineyard in the foreground and the Ferycinet Nat’l Park in the background. Yeah Bicheno!

Another really cool feature of Bicheno was the Penguin Night tours. So there are these little penguins called Fairy Penguins that come out of the ocean every night and waddle up onto shore to lay their eggs. We went on the tour, which entails of a group of 20 folks and a few flashlights wandering around the coastline. Turns out, there were freakin tons of penguins – wait until you see the video (will post that another day).
