Lots to explore and good photo opportunity. Worth stopping at regardless of age. We saw plenty of sea life.

Fun to wait and watch this natural formation. We spent 15 min climbing the rocks and watching the water rise up.

The blowhole is a great natural attraction, with access a short walk across the rocks. The waves get quite large and the blowhole puts on a great display

driving through Bicheno we decided to stop and have a look. So glad we did. Took so many amazing and unique photos of the huge swell and the orange coloured surrounding rocks. A highlight in Bicheno. Don't miss it.

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.
