What You Can Expect

Bruny Island Sightseeing and Gourmet Tour from Hobart

Bruny Island White Wallaby

Your tour begins with pickup from your Hobart hotel and a scenic drive to the pretty coastal town of Kettering, where your Bruny Island ferry departs.

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.

Next enjoy the views and feel of the white sand beaches with free time to walk along the beach or take a swim in the ocean.

Continue to Adventure Bay and the Captain Cook monument, and stop for morning tea (at own expense) at the Bruny Island Berry Farm ( closed during the winter months). 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.

My mother and I did this tour just before xmas last year. We had so much fun, had a good laugh and was relaxed. Tim, our guide, was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. We wouldn't hesitate recommending this tour to anyone.

Having previously lived in Tasmania for fifty years we had never been to Bruny Is. The tour was first on our list of to do's in Hobart after celebrating my wife's 70 th birthday. Our pick up was on time and everything went like clockwork. Our fellow passengers were all on time which helped make everything so memorable. Rick our guide was very informative which was helped by his residency on Bruny. The gourmet tour visited lots of foody places even had a few beautiful fresh oysters. Certainly a tour to be highly recommended. Was a little disappointed we didn't spend much time in Adventure Bay but it is a long day and guess you can't see everything.
