MEET THE FOOD PRODUCERS, hear the stories and explore the many corners of Bruny Island. Bruny Island day tours, Bruny Island Lighthouse tours, Bruny Island Food tours, Bruny Island Sightseeing Tours and Bruny Island Overnight Tours. The only tour in Tasmania offering Lighthouse access in the South Bruny National Park. Eat your way around Bruny Island on a gourmet and sightseeing tour departing Hobart. Visit scenic lookouts overlooking Adventure Bay and Cape Bruny, and spot echidnas, white wallabies, birdlife and other wildlife. You'll taste the gourmet treats Bruny Island is famous for, from artisan cheeses and locally grown berries to smoked salmon, chocolates, nougat, fudge, cider and whisky on extended tours (small tasting fees may apply). With pick up and drop-off from your hotel included, along with the round-trip ferry and National Park entry, this is the ultimate way to experience Bruny Island's wild beauty and wickedly delicious gourmet food. Your tour begins with pickup from your Hobart hotel and a scenic drive to the pretty coastal town of Kettering, where your Bruny Island ferry departs. Enjoy the 15-minute cruise over to Bruny Island, then travel by air-conditioned minivan to the narrow neck of land connecting the north and south parts of the island, passing oyster farms and grazing properties en route. Your island tour begins with a private cheese tasting at Bruny Island Cheese Company. After this enjoy views from Adventure Bay lookout and the Hummock lookout, a significant indigenous site that's home to Truganini Memorial. Continue to Adventure Bay and stop for morning tea at the Bruny Island Berry Farm (Seasonal). Locally grown berry fruits are available in all kinds of ways here, including ice cream, pancakes, scones with jam and cream, strawberry and chocolate fondue, and berry cakes. Your tour continues along the Mount Mangana Trail, passing Cloudy Bay on the way to Cape Bruny Lighthouse. The Iconic Bruny Island Lighthouse is Australia's last vantage point to spot migrating humpback and southern right whales, and an important navigational landmark for ships at sea, and the oldest manned lighthouse in Australia. You will enjoy a group tour of the lighthouse and learn all about how it was built, climb the spiral staircase and see the original working prisms, before stepping out onto the balcony for the amazing coastal views elevated 114m above the sea. Feeling hungry by now, stop at Hotel Bruny for a wonderful lunch featuring local Tasmanian and island produce, including locally caught fish, and Tasmanian beef and lamb. The afternoon is all about nature and more food, with stops at Get Shucked super fresh oysters (Oyster tasting) and Bruny Island House of Whisky. Walk off your indulgent lunch and tastings on a short stroll along the beach and through Bruny Island's pristine rainforests keeping an eye out for echidnas, white wallabies, wildflowers and the island's unique birdlife. Later in the afternoon enjoy the round-trip ferry to Kettering, we drop into a gourmet ice-cream producer and stop off for a chocolate-making presentation and tasting at Nutpatch Nougat Chocolates before returning to Hobart, exclusive to Bruny Island Safaris (Not always available). Try our overnight and private Bruny Island tours and enjoy some Bruny Island short walks, maybe some jetty fishing and wind down at your cabin with a glass of local wine and cook up your catch. A proportion of our proceeds are donated to Wildcare for the upkeep of Light Stations around Tasmania, for the care and maintenance of the lighthouse stations and surrounding environment volunteer programs and groups operating on islands containing lighthouses and other lighthouse stations around Tasmania. Tour founder Craig Parsey grew up on many lighthouse stations around Tasmania, including the Cape Bruny Light Station. Knowing many of the last light keepers in Australia, Craig's family experience and stories will enhance your day on Bruny Island.
