Day 2: Launceston – Bicheno

Bridestowe Lavender Estate is your first stop today.

Try some of Bridestowe’s lavender products and treat yourself to their famous lavender ice-cream. Later, stop at the Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees, planted in honour of fallen WWI soldiers. After a lunchtime stop at St. Helens, follow the picturesque east coast south to Bicheno. This consider an optional experience to see Bicheno’s wild penguin colony as they emerge from the ocean for the night (seasonal).
