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 16:30 for a 17:00 arrival in Kettering, followed by a short 30-minute drive back to Hobart, where hotel drop offs are available on request.

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.

Very relaxed and enjoyable day. Only a small group of 11, which was great. Everyone very friendly. We participated in a variety of activities- both active and passive. Cheese tasting was excellent, delicious fresh oysters before our gourmet meal of fish and chips. Although the fish and chips was well cooked and tasty, it doesn’t really rate in the gourmet realm for me. Honey tastings and ice cream was very good. David the guide kept the day moving at a good pace and was very friendly and helpful. Overall I thought the tour was pretty good value. Office staff very professional.

Full day of activities, Sam our driver was fabulous , because of the odd showers he just changed our itinerary around slightly to take advantage of when it was fine. The cheeses we sampled were yummy , the fresh oysters before lunch were so fresh & some of the best we’ve ever had. Lovely lunch over looking the water and an excellent selection of wines ,beers provided. Then onto sample, whiskey & fudge and the opportunity walk about a beautiful garden which backs onto the Sea more fantastic views. Lastly some honey tasting and sampling, we would totally recommend this tour, a wonderful day on Bruny island.
