Bruny Island Traveller - Tasting Trail Day Tour from Hobart
Hike through a rainforest and picnic on freshly shucked oysters and artisanal cheese at this rugged island off Tasmania’s southern coast. Wildlife spotting, ocean adventures, wilderness hikes and one of the oldest lighthouses in Australia make Bruny Island an exciting destination. This gorgeous getaway is also celebrated for its artisanal produce, including cheeses, chocolate, wine and whisky.
The island is approximately 100 kilometres (62 miles) in length and has two main areas, North Bruny and South Bruny. They are connected by a narrow isthmus known as the Neck. Travel to this part of the island to stand on the Truganini Lookout, a timber stepped boardwalk from where you can enjoy views of the island's coastline.
Make the most of the excellent opportunities for walking on Bruny, including rainforest and coastal walks. At the southern tip of the island is South Bruny National Park where there are trails of varying distances for all fitness levels. They pass through a rainforest, along cliffs and by bays and beaches. If you are up for a challenge, hike the Labillardiere Peninsula Circuit, a day walk that takes you to the top of Mount Bleak.
Bring your binoculars for some wildlife spotting. Many of the park’s animals are nocturnal, but during the day you should be able to spot some of the birdlife, including mutton birds and fairy penguins.
After your treks across the terrain, see the island from a different perspective by embarking on a boat cruise. Your journey will take you alongside cliffs and into sea caves.
As well as exploring the scenery, go on a food and wine gourmet tour. Stop by the Bruny Island Cheese Co. and sample its handmade cheeses made from cow and goat milk. Treat yourself to oysters at the Get Shucked Oyster Farm and sip from a glass of Tasmanian single malt whisky at the Bruny Island House of Whisky.
Reach Bruny Island by taking the short daily vehicular ferry from Kettering, which is about a 40-minute drive from Hobart, the Tasmanian capital. There is plenty of nature to see, activities to enjoy and fine food to eat on this rugged island escape, so consider staying overnight.
