Route/Trail notes

A terrific easy, short walk to several lookouts which give great views all over Bicheno. The lookouts have information signs which provide some good information and historical context to the town. One lookout faces the Western side of Bicheno while the other faces the Eastern side. 

Some of the birdlife spotted included Kookaburra, Swift Parrot, Eastern Spinebill, Tasmanian Thornbill and a Scarlet Robin.

Permits/Costs

No cost.

Comments

A great little walk to stretch the legs and see the whole of Bicheno. A well signed short gravel path up to the lookouts with terrific views.
