We did the wild life boating experience. Not for the faint hart and the long orange dress coats are a good water protection. It was very informative, the meals supplied were great and filling. It was a whole day out.

Bruny Island is a must see when you visit Hobart. Whether you go by yourself or go on a small bus tour like we did the result will be the same - a simply stunning day out - I can't put it into words -just go and do it and you will not be disappointed .

Bruny Island has some nice scenery - however not much different to the rest of Tassie - and you have to queue up for the ferry.

Different to what I imagined. Not an emerald isle but fair bit of Australian eucalyptus with areas of grazing. Interesting coast line with beaches, when one side of island waters covered with white caps the other side serene. On way to Adventure Bay stop off at Get Shucked and enjoy fabulous fresh Pacific oysters. Adventure Bay full of history dating... More

Gourmet food trail was fun. The fast boat tour from Adventure Bay at the price is due for a new High speed Cataraman, the existing boats are cold and uncomfortable. Not even a bottle of water was included

Off the asphalt, the road to the most southerly parks deteriorate to third world standards. The potholes are fierce. They cost us over $1100 in repairs.

We did two terrific walks in this park, strenuous and some steep climbs but well worth it to get the views from the tops of towering cliffs. The Fluted Cape walk showed us some rugged rock formations including up close and personal with the flutes while the East Cloudy Head included some beach walking and then through beautiful coastal heath...

Stunning scenery. Did a bus tour, but it would be great to hire a car and stay overnight. The tour was very enjoyable and included tastings.The tastings I had at the cheese factory and smallgoods shop wouldn;t have totalled a teaspoon full, Don't expect much from tastings, with the exclusion of the chocolate shop on the mainland on the way...

South Bruny Island was a real surprise. Unspoilt landscapes with bird rookeries and great fishing locations. A great place to unwind.
