The Gulch: Great Fish and Chips

The Gulch Bicheno – Introduction

The Gulch Fish and Chips in Bicheno is one of the most beguiling places to eat fresh fish and chips in Tasmania. All the fish is fresh and you can choose the piece you would like them to cook. You can even gorge on a freshly cooked crayfish!

There are two places in close proximity at the Gulch. You need to go to the smaller place which has a number of signs so you might also see the sign for Tasmanian Coastal Seafood.

The Gulch - Bicheno Fish and Chips
This is the place!

This is a remarkable place as fresh fish is very hard to find in Tasmania. Most of the catch is sent straight to the wholesalers in Melbourne where it may then be sent back to shops in Tasmania!

Some of the boats that do supply places directly usually freeze the fish when it is caught. It is rare to find a place where they catch the fish and sell it fresh such as here.

We have seen many different species of fish on sale here including perch, blue morwong, flathead, boarfish, bastard trumpeter, leatherjacket and cod.

We love sitting on the terrace in front of the tiny work area watching the birds soaring over the granite outcrops and the fishing boats bobbing and swaying in the protected waters of the Gulch.
