Near the iconic east coast town of Bicheno, the adjacent Governor Island marine reserve provides some of the best diving in Australia.

Granite boulders and ledges provide habitat for kelp in the shallows and spectacular sponge gardens, zooanthids and other invertebrates at depth. Around this butterfly perch and other fish swarm across the bottom.

All experience levels welcome, however the best diving is below 18m

Accommodation is provided, however you will have to supply your own food… but never fear because


Get along to one of Tasmania’s best food and wine festivals on Saturday November 19th 2016. This annual festival is held on a magnificent waterfront site in the pretty town of Bicheno on Tasmania’s East Coast.

Enjoy a day of exciting and unique events that are designed to bring you up close and personal with leading local wine and beer makers; chefs; food producers and gourmet innovators from Tasmania’s sunny East Coast. Indulge your senses with our world famous crayfish, heavenly mussels, delectable oysters, amazing tacos, paella, sweet treats and more.

Kick back on the grass with a glass of “something local”. Enjoy great music from popular local and visiting musicians. Stroll along the rows of food and wine stalls. Try some Tassie cider. Meet some of the producers and taste their wares.

There are cooking classes for adults and kids, beer brewing competition judging and tasting, demonstrations, a vintage surfboard exhibition, face painting for kids, and a “pop up” café that only serves chocolate cake!

So, if feasting on freshly shucked oysters and wine is your kind of heaven, head to Bicheno’s “Toast to the Coast”, Food and Wine Festival.
