Travel Times

Knowing your travel times will help you make the most of your Bicheno Food and Wine Festival weekend.

Bicheno is located in the centre of the The Great Eastern Drive, which stretches along 220 kilometres of Tasmania’s eastern coastline and the valleys, forests and mountains of the East Coast hinterland, from Orford in the south to St Helens in the north.

You can easily access the Great Eastern Drive from Hobart or Launceston and spend anything from a couple of days to a week or more experiencing everything the region has to offer. There’s far too much to see and do here to squeeze into a day trip, so make sure you give yourself time to explore, to adventure, to relax—to just stop and wander.

Treat yourself to a weekend, a few days or longer to explore your favourite east coast moments—from visiting wineries and cellar doors, to tasting delicious local produce, visiting national parks, walking long white beaches, relaxing in the region’s fantastic accommodation and enjoying the Great Eastern Drive’s incredible range of visitor experiences. Or, take your time and embark on an unforgettable, extended Great Eastern Drive road trip, starting from the north or south.

To help plan your Great Eastern Drive experience, read suggested itineraries, and check the following distances and driving times before you travel. Please note: the following driving times are approximate. Travel times can vary according to weather and road conditions and route selection, for details:
