As you’d expect from a fishing port, the seafood in Bicheno is second to none.

Some of the best can be found at The Lobster Shack, a characterful farm-gate style eatery overlooking The Gulch. They offer eat-in and takeaway, with some dishes available year-round and others seasonally. The fish and chips and the seafood chowder are both excellent… but it’s hard to go past the lobster roll. Succulent fresh lobster, crisp lettuce, and home-made sauce served on a lightly toasted milk bun. Yum.
