Full Day Bruny Island Tour

Our informative, enthusiastic and entertaining guides will take you on a full day tour from Hobart which includes our three hour wilderness cruise, a scenic bus tour from Hobart to Bruny Island return, morning tea and lunch.

You will depart Hobart at 8.00am from the Pennicott Wilderness Journeys Booking Centre on Hobart's waterfront, Franklin Wharf between the Elizabeth St Pier and Constitution Dock Lifting Bridge. You will enjoy a guided bus tour on the way to Kettering where the ferry will then leave for Bruny Island at 9.30am. When you arrive at Adventure Bay you will enjoy a morning tea break at the idyllic beachfront café.

At 11am you will depart for a full three hours exploring the Bruny Island coastline before returning to Adventure Bay for a delicious fresh lunch with time to relax on the beach and explore our souvenir shop before your return trip to Hobart. Our bus departs Adventure Bay at 3.15pm to arrive back to Hobart at approximately 5.30pm.
