Camping in the warmer months at the Cloudy Corner Camp is a must. The camp is located at the southern end of the Cloudy Bay Beach in a fairly protected area with a magnificent view. The drive along the beach is a great feeling and worth doing even if not camping. Toilets are provided. Camping costs $5/person/night. Take walks along... More

Excellent tour, fun and scary at the same time, service was excellent. The scary part was when the two seas met each other creating waves. We were taken by bus to a restaurant on the beach had morning tea then went out and came back to homemade soup and a freshly baked bread sandwich

Unfortunately it rained pretty heavily the day I visited Bruny. It's Tasmania so that goes with the territory but it does put a literal dampner on things. I did some walks and the views weren't all the great. The one up to the highest point of Bruny was particularly disappointing. It was just to some old weather station. You couldn't... More

Worth the drive on the gravel road. The view south east and west are worth it all. Its about 50 minutes back to the ferry

I did the 'adventure' tour on the speed boat and indeed it was an adventure with 2-4m seas, high wind and overcast weather. It was a rather 'hairy' trip which would be absolutely fantastic on a good day but be prepared if the weather is challenging as the trip wil be uncomfortable- bumpy & cold & wet, especially if you...

Then tour Down the South to Alonnah where you can fond the Bruny Hotel, Paddelboat's and Kayak's for Hire. Just a bit further to find the... More

This is a great day!!! Exhilarating and good value. I was going to drive to Bruny Island but so glad I left the car behind. I tend to prefer to do my "own thing" but I believe I got much more out of the day sitting back and enjoying the ride! Check the forecast before you book and wrap up... More

South Bruny National Park covers a vast area of Bruny Island. There are a number of different attractions worth seeing: the penguin rookery, Captain Cooks Landing point, the whale monument. All worth a visit. Take your time and enjoy nature at it's best.
