What You Can Expect

Bruny Island Sightseeing and Gourmet Tour from Hobart

Cape Bruny Lighthouse Sunset

After pickup in Hobart, your Bruny Island day trip starts with the drive to Kettering, a coastal town where you’ll catch the ferry for the 15-minute ride to the island. Upon arrival, board a minivan for your exploration of Bruny’s many natural and culinary delights.

Pass by oyster farms on your way to the narrow spit of land known as the neck that links the northern and southern sections of the island, and check out the Adventure Bay lookout and the Hummock lookout for fantastic photo ops. You’ll also see the Truganini Memorial, an important indigenous site.

Enjoy some free time to take a stroll on the beach or a swim in the ocean before your tour continues to Resolution Creek and a stop for morning tea (own expense) at the Bruny Island Berry Farm (note: the farm is closed in the winter). Savor the berries in one of several ways, if you like, from pancakes to ice cream to scones with jam. Then head over the Mount Mangana Trail and through the rainforest as you make your way to the Cape Bruny Lighthouse, the last vantage point in Australia to look for southern right and humpback whales. You’ll be wowed by the views of the rugged coastline against the Tasman Sea.

Next, visit Hotel Bruny for a lunch of regional food, such as fish, beef or lamb, and then start the afternoon portion of your tour with food stops at Get Shucked for fresh oysters, the Bruny Island Cheese Company for artisan cheese samples and Bruny Island House of Whisky for smoked salmon. Then walk off some of your newly ingested calories with a stroll along the coast and through the bush, where you can watch for wildlife like wallabies, birds and echidnas while admiring wildflowers.

Take the ferry back to Kettering, where you’ll make a stop for tastings and a chocolate-making demonstration at Nutpatch Nougat Chocolates. Your day trip then ends with return to Hobart.
