Bruny is an island off an island off an island! Famous for its local produce and spectacular coastal scenery, we enjoy an amazing morning walk, optional seafood lunch and then indulge in Bruny’s delicious local fare in the afternoon. Book tour

If you like spectacular scenery and gourmet local produce, Bruny is your place; an island off an island off an island at the bottom of the world.  Work up an appetite on our morning walk to the The Arch, then indulge in the local gourmet delights for the afternoon.

Also known as Lunawanna-allonah, Bruny Island is separated from mainland Tasmania by a deep green channel called the D’Entrecasteaux. Home to a small population of people who prefer to live on the wild side, Bruny is all about beaches, waves, forests and food.

We set off early from Hobart to beat the crowds, taking a scenic waterside drive and ferry crossing to arrive on the island.

First up? A section of the Cape Queen Elizabeth trail, an easy-moderate 2 hour (6.5km) return walk that delivers spectacular views from Mars Bluff of Miles Beach and Bruny Island Arch, a mind-boggling natural rock formation. 

Next stop on our Bruny adventure is the isthmus joining North and South Bruny island – this area is known as The Neck and is the location of Trugannini Lookout. There are 279 stairs to the top where you will be well rewarded with fantastic views! We take a moment here to explore and spot the penguin burrows among the sand dunes.

Onwards from The Neck, learn about the local history at Two Tree Point before relaxing for lunch at Adventure Bay, a sheltered stretch of white sand and blue waves, with giant eucalyptus standing proud along the shore. Adventure Bay is the main “Hub” of Bruny Island and the location for our lunch break. You can relax on the beach with some free time and your own lunch, or you can enjoy your lunch break at the very scenic Bruny Island Cruises Seafood Restaurant. A wonderful beachfront location.

We re-group after lunch ready for a leisurely afternoon discovering Bruny Island’s celebrated artisan produce. We make stops at Bruny Island Chocolate Company (Award winning chocolate company specialising in handmade cream fudges, chocolate products), Bruny Island Honey (Free tastings of the natural honey produced on the Island and delicious honey ice cream), Bruny Island Cheese Co. (Artisan cheese-maker and Brewer, including cellar door tastings), and Get Shucked Oyster Farm (Producing oysters in the pure water of Great Bay).

After a full day of scenery, seafood, beaches and delicious tastes on the island – we return to Hobart around 5.00pm. The perfect day? We do say!
