      Itinerary

      Bruny Island Tour

      Quickly begin to unwind as we depart for the picturesque port village of Kettering, only 40km south of Hobart, and board the ferry to Bruny Island. The journey across the D’Entrecastreaux channel will take us to north Bruny where we’ll begin exploring this island paradise. Heading south, we cross the isthmus that connects north and south Bruny and continue to South Bruny National Park and Cape Bruny. This scenic drive is worth the effort, as you are afforded unique views of the south with its wild beauty and rugged coastline. The vistas of sweeping bays, sandy beaches and rocky headlands are not to be missed.

      At the convict-built Cape Bruny lighthouse our guide will captivate you with stories of the region’s maritime history. Look out across the Southern Ocean towards Antarctica, or west to see the jagged mountain peaks of mainland Tasmania. Venture down to Lighthouse Beach while keeping a look out for Tassie’s spiky echidna. Travelling north again, we’ll visit Adventure Bay, with its idyllic beach and forested foreshore. Take a short stroll along the white sand, enjoy a swim (weather permitting) or venture out towards Grass Point while looking for the unique white Bennett’s wallabies.

      The highlights continue as we visit Truganini Lookout at the Neck, for stunning 360 degree views, and to learn the history of the Nuenonne People of Bruny Island and the incredible story of Truganini herself. During today you’ll get to taste delicious and exquisite local produce including Get Shucked Oysters, Bruny Island Honey, and Bruny Island Cheese. Just like a local, you’ll not want to leave Bruny, and you’ll definitely desire to return again on your next visit to Tasmania.
