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.
the tour was fantastic and amazing,highlight recommend this tour. Our tour guide Aaron was great, friendly and had excellent local knowledge. Even the day was windy but I have a wonderful and good memories day.
My wife and I recently did the Bruny Island sightseeing and gourmet tour which we just loved. It was the most awesome day. we were picked up promptly and early from our acommodation and off we went. The tour guide was excellent - very knowledgeable and easy to listen to.The drive to the island was pleasant and the ferry ride over to Bruny very interesting. We visited the cheese factory ( great ) ,the lighthouse (fantastic scenery ) the Get Schucked oyster barn (beautiful if you like oysters) the Bruny pub for lunch ( very good) the causeway between North and South Bruny (climb the stairs for a fabulous view) the smoked salmon shop (very nice) the morning tea place which I cannot think of its name but the scones cream and jam are to die for and last but not least back in Kettering is the very small but impressive chocolate factory which is must.A long day but well worth it. highly recommended.
