Diamond Island Resort is built around the home constructed in1856 by one of Bicheno’s first free settlers, John Allen.


John and his family lived here for many years and after John passed in 1879, his wife Ann ran the home as a guest house until1926. This same homestead is now the centrepiece of a 26 villa waterfront hotel and resort, and fabulous ‘1856’ Bar & Bistro.

The Resort today accommodates people from all over the world. With our co-inhabitants, the Little Penguins, we extend to all our guests a private Penguin Tour on the Resort property, included in every Villa package.
