A full-day private tour to Bruny Island, exclusively for your group of 1-6 participants. Explore Bruny Island’s pristine beaches, impressive and rugged coastal landscapes and an abundance of birds and wildlife – and see it all with a photographic perspective. You’ll travel in a private vehicle from Hobart and spend the day marvelling at the sights and scenes like Cape Bruny Lighthouse, South Bruny National Park, Adventure Bay, ‘The Neck’ nature reserve and other locations as time permits. There might be eagles soaring overhead, an echidna traipsing through coastal heath, a pink robin in the forest and possibly some white wallabies posing for a photo too. You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch and as you may desire, an opportunity to taste some of the culinary delights that Bruny Island is famous for. Your guide is a local photographer so you can take advantage of their knowledge to learn hints and tips for great photos throughout the day.
You are collected from your Hobart CBD accommodation for a journey south of Hobart to Kettering and on a vehicular ferry cross the D’Entrecasteaux Channel to North Bruny Island.
Upon arrival on Bruny Island we make our way to ‘The Neck’, a narrow isthmus that connects North Bruny to South Bruny; we stop here and climb a series of steps to a viewing platform for breathtaking views of the expanse of the coastline and beyond.
We continue to South Bruny National Park through lush eucalypt forests and onward to Cape Bruny, the site of the second oldest lighthouse in Australia. Breathe in the fresh air and take a moment to soak in the tranquillity; the stunning coastal landscape and magnificent views of rugged sea cliffs will simply captivate you. If we’re lucky, a White-bellied Sea Eagle or Wedge-tailed Eagle may be riding the thermals above us or a Short-beaked Echidna may be traipsing through the heathland as an array of birds flit about in the native vegetation.
Enjoy a picnic lunch at a location that will be chosen on the day then continue into the afternoon with a leisurely walk in Adventure Bay. If we’re lucky a white wallaby or two will grace us with their presence, shorebirds are often seen in this area too. Wherever you look or wander on Bruny, be it coast or bush, there is wonder and inspiration for photography around you.
You may like to take a brief moment (time permitting) for a taste of locally produced cheeses, locally harvested oysters or Tasmanian whisky. Boarding the ferry we return to Hobart – you’ll be invigorated and have many a photographic memory of your visit to Bruny Island.
