Experience Hobart’s best day trip!

This great-value day out offers an active experience for keen walkers, or a more relaxed day for others. Only 40km south of Hobart, we board the ferry to Bruny Island at the picturesque port village of Kettering and cruise across the D’Entrecastreaux channel.

Heading south, we cross the isthmus that connects North and South Bruny and continue to South Bruny National Park and Cape Bruny. This scenic drive unveils the island’s wild beauty and rugged coastline, with vistas of sweeping bays, idyllic sandy beaches, wild rocky headlands, and eucalypt forests.
At the convict-built Cape Bruny lighthouse, our guide will tell tales of the region’s maritime history as you gaze upon the vast Southern Ocean. We’ll venture down to Lighthouse Beach while keeping a look out for Tassie’s spiky echidna.

At Adventure Bay, we’ll stop at historic Two Tree Point for some morning tea of renowned Bruny Island local produce, with tastings of Get Shucked Oysters, Bruny Island Cheese, and locally made sourdough. Then onward to our featured hike to Fluted Cape, with its incredible ocean views on top of majestic dolerite cliffs. This is the best short walk on Bruny Island, but if you prefer something less challenging, a stroll out to Grass Point or along the Bay’s white sand beach will not disappoint, especially with the chance of seeing Bruny’s famous white wallabies.

The highlights continue as we visit Truganini Lookout at the Neck, for stunning 360-degree views. To cap off an active day out, you may wish to try Bruny’s other local tastings like leatherwood honey, or perhaps opt for a craft beer from the Bruny Beer and Cheese Co.
