Why does everyone book this Bruny Island tour?
Because it includes a tour inside Cape Bruny Lighthouse (not available to any other tour operator). Your tour guides are passionate local people who have grown up on Bruny Island and know it better than anyone else. It has been rated best Bruny Island Tour for the past 4 years (2014-2017). The group is small and has a maximum of 20 people.
Each tour guide is a little different in the way they conduct our tours and often will add their own island life experiences and stories to the day, making for one of the most personable tour experiences in Tasmania. The Cape Bruny Lighthouse Tour for many guests is the highlight of the day along with the guide stories, characters and fine foods.
Your day will start off leisurely, with a hotel pick up. Enjoy a scenic country and coastal drive to Kettering, where you will board the ferry and enjoy beautiful crossing to Bruny Island. You'll begin the day climbing The Neck and Adventure Bay lookout for amazing views as far as you can see.
We visit the berry farm in Adventure Bay before heading to South Bruny National Park. It is here we take a short break for morning tea on the beach with a selection of Bruny Island Cheeses, Oysters and Wood Oven Breads.
Next, we have a scenic drive through a rainforest before heading up over Mount Mangana to Cape Bruny.
We have lunch at Hotel Bruny who specialise in the freshest Tasmanian seafood and local produce. Your choices for lunch include fish, lamb, seafood chowder or a large seafood platter for 2! Gluten free and vegetarian options are available. It is hard not to have a drink of the wonderful local wine, beer or cider with lunch! Lunch comes with a warning, you have to leave room for the freshly shucked oysters, the freshest you will ever taste! They come out of the sea metres from where you sit! The backdrop is the waters of Great Bay, so pretty!
After lunch, we visit South Bruny Island National Park where you will be astounded by the spectacular and rugged coastal views, expanses of coastal vegetation and the wildlife including whales, white wallabies, eagles, echidnas and more that call this area their home.
Time to walk off a little of that great lunch by going on a tour of the iconic Bruny Island Lighthouse, perched 115m atop the Dolerite Sea Cliffs. You learn about the history of this lovely building, taking in sea views from its balcony. The views are amazing from the top so make sure you have your camera with you.
The last stop of the day is for dessert! We stop at the amazing Nutpatch Chocolates where you learn all about chocolate making and of course there is sampling! I bet you won’t leave without buying something!

Review from C.Z. traveled 15th Feb 2018
I recently booked and completed a Bruny Island Safari’s tour with yourselves on the above date whilst staying in Hobart for a week on a girls trip away. I would like to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to the wonderful ‘Rob’ who was our tour guide for the day. He was without a doubt the most organised, informative, friendly and professional tour guide that we have ever come across. Nothing was too much trouble, his patience was above and beyond what was required and we departed with a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend to any and all that are considering doing this tour when visiting Tasmanina. We all had such an enjoyable and memorable day with many many thanks to ‘Rob’, which I’m sure was mostly as a result of his devoted effort to ensure each and every person received the most pleasurable experience possible.
Congratulations to you for having such a fantastic person show casing not only your company but Bruny Island and Tasmania.
