Description

This day trip to Bruny Island provides a terrific balance of scenery, guided nature walks, wildlife, and local produce tastings. Departing Hobart, travel 40km south to Kettering and take the ferry across the D’Entrecastreaux channel to Bruny Island for a fun-filled day. The scenic drive from North Bruny Island to South Bruny National Park reveals Bruny's coastal beauty, featuring wild coves and beaches. At Cape Bruny, learn the history behind the convict-built lighthouse and enjoy views of the Southern Ocean and of Lighthouse Beach. Tastings of local produce begin at historic Two Tree Point in Adventure Bay, with morning tea time made up of freshly baked sourdough bread, cheese, and oysters. Next, choose a walking option, such as an adventurous hike to Fluted Cape with its impressive dolerite cliffs, ocean views, and eucalyptus forest, or take an easy stroll out to Grass Point. If you prefer an even more relaxed time, wander along the bay’s white sands. Climb the steps to the top of Truganini Lookout at the Neck, for memorable panoramic vistas. Try Bruny’s other local specialties like leatherwood honey (included) or opt for a craft beer before returning to Hobart in the evening (at your own expense). With luck, sightings of local wildlife such as echidna and white wallabies on the return ferry back will round off your trip.
