BOOK THIS TOUR
45 Minutes off the south-east corner of Tasmania, Bruny Island features spectacular rugged coastlines and abundant wildlife. Of the 650 permanent residents on the island, many have been drawn to the pure environment to craft and grow some of Tasmania’s finest food and wine. Spend 3 days exploring the Island on foot and by boat, returning to a luxury campsite each night to relax by a fireplace and enjoy local produce and a glass of local wine. There are few better ways to spend a weekend away.
|Day One||Step aboard our private boat and explore the river Derwent as we cruise to Bruny Island (we offer the only alternative access to the long queues of the Bruny Island ferry). Enjoy a guided walk on Bruny Island’s east coast (12km return, 5-6hrs, don’t worry you won’t need to carry a pack). Cool off by wading out into the crystal clear waters of Great Bay and harvesting your own oysters. Sleep in a king size bed in a luxury tent and enjoy a hot shower at our camp set on a secluded 100 acres. Sit back and enjoy a glass of wine as your guides prepare dinner sourced from either on the island or in the waters surrounding it.|
|Day Two||Guided walk to East Cloudy Head for views of Bruny Island’s rugged South Coast and the Southern Ocean (12km return, 5-6hrs, dont worry you wont need to carry a pack). Drop by our neighbour Ross O’Meara’s farm (of Gourmet Farmer fame) and collect some ingredients for the evening’s meal (Bruny Island Food). Have some time to yourself and try to spot some of Bruny Island’s 150 species of birds (including all 12 Tasmanian endemics). Gather round the fire with a glass of pinot from Tasmania’s Southernmost vineyard. As darkness descends on camp, watch as Tasmania’s unique nocturnal wildlife emerges.|
|Day Three||Stretch your legs on a short morning rainforest walk and search for white wallabies. Experience Rob Pennicott’s multi-award winning wilderness and wildlife adventure cruise with the chance to see seals, dolphins, whales and albatross. Enjoy lunch and a farewell drink on the deck of The Jetty Cafe. Farewell Bruny Island with a scenic boat return trip back to the Hobart waterfront.|
