If you’ve never been to Bruny Island before you are in for a treat. However, don’t be tempted to think that you can see and enjoy everything this special part of Tasmania has to offer in a day or even two. Bruny is best savoured slowly … dawn walks in the bush surrounded by a symphony of song. Dusk on a lonely beach. Exploring sheltered coves and just absolutely indulging yourself in the tranquility this island has to offer.

It’s not all about relaxing. Adventure Bay and Cloudy Bay both offer fantastic surfing opportunities in the right conditions. Bruny also has some great locations for kayaking and mountain bike riding. Bring your boat and enjoy some of the best fishing in Tassie. There’s over 300kms of roads on Bruny and some of them are 4WD only. Forestry Tasmania has several roads that run over the highlands in the south and are definitely worth traversing. Spectacular views towards Cloudy Bay are breathtaking on a clear dawn in Summer.

Many people ask us what there is to do on Bruny and we’re very pleased to answer “not much” We like to relax but if you want to have a more active holiday there are several amazing bushwalks on the island, a fantastic eco-boat cruise, Australia’s southernmost vineyard with pretty good wines, terrific fishing and diving opportunities, some really amazing surfing, an excellent cheese maker, a first rate providore and smokehouse, highly regarded oyster farm, lovely beaches, quiet bays and, of course, prolific wildlife.

We discovered Bruny 25 years ago and, even all these years later, every time we disembark from the ferry at the terminal on the island we are immediately filled with a sense of peace and excitement. Even a weekend here leaves us feeling ready to face city life once more.

Bruny does have a tragic past and you may find places on the island where there is a deep sense of sadness. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this place and we try to walk and live here respecting their heritage and their passing.

Favourite things for us to do include evening walks on the beach at Two Tree Point, summer picnics at Cloudy Bay beach, and reading the newspapers over a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast in the garden at Parnella.

Absolute essentials to bring include your camera and a pair of binoculars, good walking shoes, a warm jacket and a sense of adventure. Bruny has a lot to offer and adventure rewards the prepared.

Wherever you go on Bruny no matter what the time or the weather always carry a camera. It’s hard to take bad pictures here and all too often we’ve experienced turning a corner to be presented with a breathtaking moment only to realise we left our camera at home.

If you’re not into photography carry a sketchbook or even a notepad and pencil to capture the special moments you’re bound to experience here.

Bruny is also rich with a culture of art. There is a wide range of artists living and working on the island. Try to seek them out – you’re bound to find work that strikes a resonance with you.

If you’re seeking Accommodation in Bruny Island then consider Parnella Adventure Bay as your next getaway.
