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.
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 Resolution Creek named after Captain Cooks ship 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 over the Mount Mangana Trail and through ancient rainforests with Tree Ferns standing 16-foot (5 meters) high 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. The coastal views are amongst the best in Tasmania with rugged dolerite coastlines looming eerily over the Tasman Sea.
Feeling hungry by now, stop at Hotel Bruny for a wonderful lunch featuring local Tasmanian 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 the Bruny Island House of Whisky.
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.

This tour was amazing!
I didn't expect the weather to hold up for us, but it did. It started magnificently with a view of the sunrise from the departing feery wharf. The tour guide Ben was awesome, so enthusiastic and chilled out at the same time. He gave us great stories along the way and made the experience amazing!
