There are plenty of views of the area. You will be able to take some amazing photographs to treasure, of your visit of the area. Make sure you pack a camera, ipad, or mobile phone to take some amazing photos

Had a great day in freezing conditions. Mid winter though so no complaints. The cheese maker and Shucked Oysters did not dissapoint. The ferry company offer a fantastic service at a very reasonable price for a return trip. Very scenic.

Day trip probably could have been shortened to a half day and been just as exciting. Amazing island draw cards: penguins, seals, blowholes, proximity to Antarctica -- was all quite amazing!

Heading to this island use big boat with place for many car in 2 storey. This island is quite, but got spectacular nature view and fresh oyster.

Took a cruise around Bruny Island on open boat, fascinating scenery, but so cold, nothing could get me warm, never felt so cold! Tour could probably be done in 2hrs instead of 3, 1hr getting back to base.

Bruny Island turned out to be an unexpected pleasure. The trip over on the ferry was simple and the island itself is very easy to explore. The beaches are beautiful although it was too cold to swim. The penguins were a no show but being the only ones on the beach late at night looking at the sky was reward... More

Had a great visit to the national park on south bruny. We visited the light house and were the only ones there at that time so shared it with all the wildlife, bunny rabbits included. Good facilities at the light house, well done to the national park workers for looking after this beautiful site!

I have been going to Bruny Island for almost 60 years. The beaches are still pristine, unpopulated and beautiful. It has everything; rain forests, waterfalls, bush, scenery, beaches, nature walks. I never tire of the beauty.

Some amazing beaches, cliffs and great walks for all sorts. Look out for the famous white wallabies at dusk. Light house is awesome and the beach there is great for surfing if you are brave.. Well worth a visit. Next time we will do the Penticotts boat trip which sounds like a must.

I didn't believe a place like this existed in Australia. Rather like northern Scotland on the coast with large areas of wilderness that puts one in touch with nature. Rough roads that turn to boggy mud with frequent showers may defeat little cars.I wouldn't take mine. Bruny Island is a must see but take the day tour which includes delicious... More
