Upon your ship's arrival at the cruise port in Hobart, your shore excursion begins with minivan pickup for the drive through Battery Point and Sandy Bay to Kettering, a pretty town where you’ll visit Nutpatch Nougat Chocolates for samples of sweet treats. Then hop on the ferry for the 15-minute cruise to Bruny Island.
When you reach the island, begin your discovery of its food scene, from artisan cheese samples at Bruny Island Cheese Company to fresh-from-the-sea oysters at Get Shucked. If you wish to imbibe with a whiskey or wine tasting, this can be organized for an additional fee. In between tastings, enjoy easy walks with your guide along the shoreline and through wilderness areas, where you may spot island wildlife like echidnas, wallabies and birds. Head through Mount Mangana and Cloudy Bay, the last point in Australia to observe southern right whales and humpback whales, and sit down to a picnic lunch of regional produce at a scenic spot.
After arriving back in Hobart, your tour ends with drop-off at the cruise port to catch your ship.
