Time falls away as you explore the island, hear its stories and marvel at its scenery. At The Neck, you'll reach the crest of a lofty dune and see the narrow isthmus stretch away south in graceful curves. In Adventure Bay, imagine distant echoes of the past in the place where whalers camped and launched their boats; and at Cape Bruny, experience the rare and exclusive experience of climbing the spiral stairs inside the historic lighthouse, to gaze seaward, just as the lightkeepers did.


On your Bruny Island journey you'll meet some of the island's food and wine producers - people who put their skill, energy and spirit into harvesting the perfect vintage, crafting the most delicious cheese, picking the sweetest summer berries, shucking the finest oysters, growing the most succulent salmon. And you'll taste the fruits of their labour, with a wonderful lunch of island specialties, served at Australia's southern-most vineyard. You'll also feel the spirit of Bruny in its birds and animals, and their wild, natural habitat.


Everyone who spends time on Bruny Island shares the experience of leaving everyday life behind. There's a strange but exhilerating sense of 'islandness' - a feeling of being away and apart from the world. It's hard to explain, but easier to feel. You'll know it as you walk on the empty stretch of a remote surf beach, as you look out from the lofty tower of Cape Bruny Lighthouse, and as you leave the Tasmanian mainland behind, crossing the D'Entrecasteaux Channel to feel an island's soul.
