Full description
Explore Bruny Island’s spectacular landscapes, gourmet produce, and inspiring locals on a small group tour of no more than 18 fellow 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, berries, premium wines, honey and whisky. You’ll meet some of the island’s food and wine producers - people who put their energy and spirit into harvesting the perfect vintage, crafting the most delicious cheese, picking the sweetest summer berries or shucking the finest oysters.  Stop for a delicious lunch of island specialties, served at Australia’s southernmost vineyard.  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 - this pristine wilderness is 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.

    The tour guide and service was fantastic! The information was relevant and well presented, the day was full but not rushed. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. We weren't huge fans of the whisky stop, and would have preferred wine. But we didn't love it any less because of that.

    Marny was a great guide, lots of knowledge and history and stories of the island and the mainland. He was very flexible with the groups decisions ( when we had to dodge the weather etc). Had some good jokes and generally entertaining. The host food spots were all very generous with gifts, tastings and servings.

    The tour, the guide, commentary and the places visited were all really good. We were the last guests to be picked up for this full tour so we landed in the back seats of the bus. This was pretty uncomfortable, and while we raised it with the driver the only suggestion he had was for one of us to sit up the front with him (the other to stay down the back). Probably would have been fairer if he suggested the passengers pick a different seat each time we boarded so everyone would get to share the back of the bus.
