An all-inclusive touring experience exploring awesome scenery, pristine beaches and more. Morning tea and lunch included.


Bruny Island is renowned for a rugged terrain, magnificent coastal landscapes, captivating forest walks and a diversity of wildlife and native flowers; it's a birdwatcher's paradise too.

This is a day is one to explore a spectacular coastal environment, hear stories about an indigenous history and early explorers. You'll be in awe of the natural environment, its panoramic views and the pristine beaches. Throughout the day, we'll keep an eye out for the bird and wildlife inhabitants along the way. Throughout the day, you may like to tease your tastebuds with a tipple of wine at a winery, cheese at the cheesemakers or an oyster at the oyster farm.

Channel arriving on North Bruny Island.

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.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 10 hours 30 min.

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.
