Full description

Discover Bruny Island’s spectacular landscapes, gourmet produce, and inspiring locals on a guided tour with a knowledgeable local guide. Tours depart daily from Hobart and local accommodation. Relax and enjoy this fully inclusive experience showcasing the best of Bruny Island. Try cheeses, oysters, fudge, premium wines, honey, and mead. Meet some of the island’s artisan producers, people who put their energy and spirit into handcrafting these renowned products. Stop for a delicious lunch at Pennicott’s beachside restaurant with sweeping views of Adventure Bay.  Throughout the day you'll see incredible scenery. At The Neck, see the narrow isthmus stretch away south in graceful curves. Take a stroll and leave your footprints in the sand of a deserted beach. The light bush of the northern island gives way to the dense rainforest of the south's Mavista Rainforest - a pristine environment home to diverse wildlife including rare white wallabies.

Board the ferry for a return crossing to Kettering, followed by a short drive back to Hobart, where hotel drop-offs are available on request.

I had such a great day exploring Bruny Island. The cheese, bread and beer tasting was really good and such great people there. We went to the lookout at the neck area and read the history of Bruny Island and the original people that had lived there for over 42,000 yrs. We had lunch and went to a chocolatera and gardens. The gardens were beautiful with a look out over the water. Great day all around.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day on Bruny. Guide Jacob was excellent keeping the day rolling and providing lots of information with just the right mix of humour and detail. It was a full day with great variety in experiences. Lunch was delicious and the cheese tasting a highlight. Highly recommend.

The driver was great apart from teasing his pickups that he was not the Bruny island bus. Makes it a bit hard when you are a traveller and unsure. Otherwise all good. Not sufficient toilets. Needed some at the honey place amd at the fudge place. Soooo important!
