Tide was on the way out but still a small blow happening! Lots of crabs and wildlife to find, great chance to see the kelp and check out the tidal pools

We were stoked to find this blowhole in Bicheno. It was great even though the swell wasn't that big. Don't get too close though, it comes out with force fairly randomly however there is a big rock nearby you can hide behind.

This is just a great natural attraction. Be careful from which side you approach from and which way the wind is blowing unless your intention is get a good soaking. Incredible lichens create a wonderful color scheme on the rocky surrounds.

I walked from the car park and I am glad I took the camera ! Great swell provided a great sight as the blowhole shoes it's glory! Wait for a great swell then go and take some pictures ! Highly recommended !

We went down to the blowhole before sunset and all the clouds were lit up in the pink colors of the sunset. The water spots through the blowhole quite frequently. If you are lucky you might even see a few tiny penguins at sunset!

The best things in life are free. Could stay here all day enjoying the view and the fresh air. You could spot a whale on a lucky day!

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.
