Car ferry across & a pleasant drive across both islands. Highlight was the view from the isthmus and the walk up the 227 steps to the lookout. Nice country drive, but because it was winter with driving winds we didn't stay too long.

The walks in the National Park are very picturesque; bush, cliff and coastal views abound. We did the Cape Bruny, Cape Queen Elizabeth and Flute Cape walks varying between about 1.5 hours and up to 4 hours. They were all very rewarding and being that time of the year, we had them to ourselves!

What a lovely place to visit. Took the car over on the ferry, a short 20 min ride, and drove along the coastline of this lovely island. It was unique with low grassy terrain to tall rainforest trees. Cafes and restaurants scattered through the island to stop for a break. Glad we made the effort to explore this little gem.

If you get a chance while in Tasmania don't skip Bruny Island. A 20 minute, $30 return ferry ride to a very rural, very hilly, tremendously beautiful place. Wonderful parks, tidy campgrounds and an abundance of wildlife. Go!

A short ferry ride from Kettering brings you to this amazing island. You could be a million miles away from city life here. The scenery is beautiful and it is well worth the climb to the lookout. Great local produce provides for tasty meals and treats. If you can't spare the time to stay on the island, then just go... More

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!

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.
