Bruny Island private full day all-inclusive private tour

A day of spectacular scenery, panoramic views, bird watching and wildlife spotting.

This 1-day tour may not be suited during some peak periods (eg. Christmas, School Holidays and long weekends) due to limited space on the vehicular ferry affecting timely arrival on and off Bruny Island. Delays with access may impact on the duration of time spent on the island however we will maximise the time with activities as time avails.


Departing Hobart we travel south to Kettering for a 20 minute ferry journey across the D'Entrecasteaux
Channel arriving on North Bruny Island.

Bruny Island is renowned for a rugged terrain, magnificent coastal landscapes, captivating forest walks and a diversity of wildlife and native flowers, it's also a birdwatcher's paradise. Visit 'The Neck', a narrow isthmus that separates North Bruny Island from South Bruny Island, Adventure Bay, Cape Bruny Lighthouse, Cloudy Bay, South Bruny National Park and more as time permits.

Departure from Hobart CBD accommodation is complimentary; Airport meet and greet is available by arrangement.
If you are staying in accommodation outside of the city area, I will meet you at the Hobart Travel and Information Centre on the corner of Elizabeth & Davey Streets, Hobart (unless arranged otherwise).
I will meet you at the cruise ship terminal in Hobart. Upon disembarkation, please make your way inside the main terminal building. You will find me near the tourist information desk and I will be holding a sign with your name clearly displayed.

End location: I will return you to your CBD hotel. You may wish end your tour at a different location to where it started. If you would like to end your tour somewhere specific, please let me know as soon as possible - or we can arrange this during your tour.

Duration: 10 hours

We will be reliant on the schedule of the vehicular ferry (which does not take pre-bookings) to cross the D'Entrecastaux Channel requiring us to queue for boarding. At some times (peak tourist season), this can be busy so we may arrive in Hobart a little later than expected.


You will travel in a modern, air-conditioned passenger vehicle, sedan or SUV (depending on number of participants).

2016 Toyota Kluger SUV (aka Highlander) - up to 6 passengers* plus driver
* 5th and 6th passengers will step up through wide opening passenger doors, behind the middle row into a 3rd row of seating.


2008 VW Jetta Sedan - seats up to 4 passengers plus the driver
* Ideal for 3 passengers however a 4th passenger (of smaller stature) may be seated in the middle of the back seat.
