Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is a great way to experience the rugged beauty of Bruny Island and taste the island’s top-quality food and wine.
What You Can Expect
Enjoy the 15-minute cruise over to Bruny Island, then travel by air-conditioned minivan to the narrow neck of land connecting the north and south parts of the island, passing oyster farms and grazing properties en route. Your island tour begins with views from Adventure Bay lookout and the Hummock lookout, a significant indigenous site that's home to Truganini Memorial.
Continue to Adventure Bay and the Captain Cook monument, and stop for morning tea (at own expense) at the Bruny Island Berry Farm. Locally grown berry fruits are available in all kinds of ways here, including ice cream, pancakes, scones with jam and cream, strawberry and chocolate fondue, and berry cakes.
Your tour continues along the Mount Mangana Trail, passing Cloudy Bay on the way to Cape Bruny Lighthouse. The lighthouse is Australia's last vantage point to spot migrating humpback and southern right whales, and an important navigational landmark for ships at sea.
Feeling hungry by now, stop at Hotel Bruny for a wonderful lunch featuring local island produce, including locally caught fish, and Tasmanian beef and lamb.
The afternoon is all about nature and more food, with stops at the Bruny Island Cheese Company to taste delicious artisan cheeses, fresh oysters at Get Shucked, and smoked salmon at BISH.
Walk off your indulgent lunch and tastings on a short stroll along the coast and through Bruny Island’s pristine bushland, keeping an eye out for echidnas, wallabies, wildflowers and the island's unique birdlife.
Later in the afternoon, enjoy the round-trip ferry to Kettering and stop off for a chocolate-making presentation and tasting at Nutpatch Nougat Chocolates before returning to Hobart.
In very challenging circumstances our guide went well above what was expected to ensure that we had a brilliant day on the Island. Unfortunately most of the little businesses were not open this day due to the massive storm the day before knocking out all power on the island. Despite this, our guide still managed to source some local produce for us to try due to the strong network that Scotty has on the island, our day did not go to waste. Highly recommended and I will be back to get the full tour again one day!! Bruny Island now occupies a very special place in my heart. Thanks Scotty, and thanks Bruny Island Safaris!!
We had a great day. The tour guide was a fun person with a great pesonality. His comentry was easy to listen to and was very informative. We loved the cheese factory and the oyster farm and the scenery was spectacular. We would not hesitate to recomend this tour to anyone we know who would be travelling to Tasmania.
