Full description

Explore Bruny Island’s spectacular landscapes, gourmet produce, and inspiring locals on a small group tour of around 20 passengers, plus your 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. Your return ferry crossing departs at 4:30 PM for a 5:00 PM arrival in Kettering, followed by a short 30-minute drive back to Hobart, where hotel drop offs are available on request.

Would highly recommend this tour and tour company. The bus was luxury, plush very comfortable. David our guide was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. The luncheon choice was delicious of freshly caught fish and a couple of glasses of sparkling wine. Will look for this tour company on our next trip.

We had a fantastic time. It was very entertaining yet educational at the same time. We learnt so much about Bruny Island itself plus the people who live on this beautiful island. From pick up to drop off we enjoyed the whole process. Lots to see, eat, drink and relax. Highly recommend for all.
