The Hut

About Us


If you need a cosy, clean and comfortable place to stay for 1 – 5 guests, then “The Hut” is the place for you.  “The Hut’ is a small privately owned family venture located centrally in Bicheno but without the hustle and bustle of passing pedestrians, traffic and noise.

 The Hut is a 5 minute stroll to the beautiful family-friendly Waub’s Beach (patrolled by the Bicheno Surf Life Saving Club at designated times during the summer season) and 15 minute walk/3 minute drive to Redbill Beach for a swim or a surf.  You can walk to the town centre for breakfast, lunch and dinner at numerous cafes, bakeries, restaurants and coffee shops and the local hotel.  For those requiring medications or other medical assistance, a local chemist can provide for your needs.

You can follow the East Coast Wine Tour, shop for amazing Tasmanian arts and crafts, book for an evening penguin tour or take a tour of the amazing marine life at the Gulch in the glass-bottomed boat.  You are only short drive to the world famous Coles Bay/Freycinet area.  Local shops include: pop-up second-hand clothing, furniture, jewellery and collectibles.  You can also buy casual and upmarket clothing, shoes, gifts and surf gear.  Camping and outdoor supplies are well-catered for in the Log Cabin store.  The Tourist Centre, Library, Newsagency, local IGA Supermarket are in one central location.  A Petrol station is also situated centrally.

The Hut welcomes respectful adults and children.  It is STRICTLY NON-SMOKING on the premises, both inside and out.  The Hut sleeps a non-negotiable MAXIMUM of 5 guests in one queen bed and 3 single beds.  All linen and bath towels are provided.  Guests can prepare and cook their own food in a well-equipped kitchen.  Oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, sandwich maker, pots and pans, wok and fridge are all clean and ready for our guests.  Crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils and glassware are plentiful.  Guests can rinse the day away in a shower or bath.

The owner of ‘The Hut’ also operates Tasmania’s premium Surf School – “42 South Surf School”.  You can arrange individual or group lessons by calling Gary Egan on 0419 120 704.
