“Wait a while”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

If you wait long enough the view is worth it, the bowl hole is small but, it still puts on a show great photo

“Beautiful Bicheno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

This review covers more than just the blowhole, but the also the surrounding beach/rock areas of Bicheno.
This whole area and blowhole is stunning visually (on a clear day the waters are turquoise), relaxing and not overrun with thousands of tourists.
You can explore at your own leisure and take in the show mother-nature put on for you, and unlike other popular bow hole areas, there aren't fenced off areas or out of bounds places. The whole place is open, just take care when walking around slippery rocks!
If you're looking for a peaceful stroll, an energetic rock "climb" and to see some of the most beautiful coast line in Tassie, get to the Bicheno blowhole and surrounding areas.

“Its a blow hole !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Its a lovely area and a quite 100 m walk across the rocks. If the sea is running and the tide right and the wind right, it blows. Seen 1 blow hole and you have nearly seen them all. However it is a very pleasant spot for a break and there is NO touristy shops and stuff around ( but it is only 0.5km from town). One could easily buy fish & chips and go down to eat it whilst waiting for the blow hole to blow.

“In favourable conditions, it's fantastic.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We stopped in here to fill in time before the penguin tour. Be prepared to wait a bit for a big spray, and don't come in low tide, but luckily there are nice big red rocks that are very pretty and nice to sit on. A worthy side trip if you have time to spare.
