This property is the base camp for guests of The Bruny Island Long Weekend. Well secluded, on a private 100 acres, this little haven represents the perfect place to retreat. Although the camp has been built completely 'off the grid', we are not without our creature comforts. Each tent contains a king-size bed with quality linen and the highlight, for many guests, is our hot outdoor shower, tucked away on one of the most beautiful parts of the property.

I thought this trip would be a bit too "soft", however it exceeded expectations on every level. The hikes were awesome. Not challenging, but enough to feel that you had a decent workout, and some incredibly beautiful locations. The camp site was fabulous. Loved the soft beds, the eating cabin with the stone open fireplace, and yes the outdoor shower was sublime The food quality was simply unbelievable. Fresh local produce prepared to perfection by our guides Ollie and Simon. And hats off to both for producing a simply incredible trip. Friends and I have been hiking together for more than 35 years now. Never experienced anything like this!

Property's Favourite Review
From the superb guides, Damon and Simon of which environmental knowledge and passion was second to none, to their exceptional culinary skills that left us joyed with local produce delights. We hiked to breathtaking views of Bruny Island’s Cape Queen Elisabeth and Cloudy Bay. Our guides ensuring everybody’s needs were well supported. Returning to camp in the afternoon treated us to a warm shower, chatting amongst friends about the day events over a beer/wine, before a three course meal and capping off with a super deluxe bed. Special mention to Rob for the smooth boat ride over and history commentary, and Barry for the return boat trip keeping us all warm and dry in the waterproof ponchos. So blessed to have shared the stunning Bruny Island experience with my amazing friends.

Loved every moment, from meeting fellow guests and our wonderful hosts, Ollie and Nina, in Hobart to our ‘break up’ lunch at Dennes Point. The food was a highlight, comprising fresh local ingredients expertly prepared and presented by our guides. Excellent to sit out on the deck with a beer in the sun after a walk and before dinner. Walks carefully judged to match the capabilities of participants, with alternatives lined up in case of bad weather. Max 10 guests per trip.

From the moment we met our excellent guides at the dock in Hobart we were hosted for the whole long weekend. Rob, the business owner boated us to and from the island. Every meal , the divine beds in our tents , the outdoor shower and the camp setting had been carefully considered. Walks through the bush and across beaches was interesting with information about plants and especially birds. I enjoyed hearing of the history of the first peoples and later explorers who came by sea. We visited an organic farm where our weekends greens and eggs were packed fresh into boxes to take to camp. I liked that our activities showcased a view of the island the locals would see rather than bigger tourist hot spots.
