Mavista Falls walk into the Tree Fern forests. A very easy walk…. Or join the Boat Cruise by Pennicott Wilderness Journeys

Head over Mount Mangana to Lunawanna, through rainforests and experience amazing scenery across the island. Your guide will point out many of our Tasmanian Timber species and even taste some of our Tasmanian Pepper bushes if you are game.

Late Lunch at Bruny Island Premium Wines. Enjoy selecting from an extensive menu with a focus on local produce, and a glass of wine of your choice. Join a wine tasting and select a bottle of Bruny Island Premium Wine to take back to your accommodation for the evening (1 bottle per couple).

Visit the South Bruny National Park and Cape Bruny Lightstation, where you can enjoy optional walks of varying levels and join your very own private tour of the Cape Bruny Lighthouse perched above the pounding oceans and craggy coastlines of Southern Tasmania. This will be a late tour and almost bordering on sunset in the cooler months.

Evening meal is at Hotel Bruny who are world renowned for providing a wonderful Seafood Chowder, Slow Cooked local lamb and many other hearty dishes. Wash this down with a Bruny Island Cider or local Beer… Try a few Island and Tasmanian Ciders.

Your guide will escort you to your boutique accommodation after dinner.... We partner with Bruny Island Escapes and offer carefully selected properties to ensure all your needs are met. The property selected for you is dependent on your group size.

Bush walk to either Grass Point (very easy 1 hour return - suitable for children)

OR 2.5 hours return to Fluted Cape (medium grade walk)

An extension of the Grass Point and Penguin Island walks. From Grass Point, the track climbs steeply to the summit of Fluted Cape (272m), passing the very high sea cliffs. This walk can be changed to suit your ability and should be discussed prior to the tour commencing….The Fluted Cape walk allows you to experience dry forests, whaling history and evidence still seen today. Views towards the Tasman Peninsula, towering sea-cliffs, and the opportunity to see Wedge Tailed and White Bellied Sea-Eagles soaring in the thermals. Please note that this walk should not be attempted by young children unless closely supervised. White Wallaby are seen on this walk most days.

On the way to lunch, visit the local chocolate makers and sample some of their products.

Then onto the Neck Wildlife Zone and Beach - Amazing views across Adventure Bay towards Fluted Cape, Tasman Peninsula and D’Entrecasteaux Channel. Pay respect to the original residents of Bruny Island, the Nuenonne People. The Nuenonne band occupied Bruny Island on a permanent basis and their total numbers are estimated to be some 70 people. The Nuenonne people called the island Lunawannalonna. This name is retained in the names of two settlements on South Bruny, Alonnah and Lunawanna, meaning land across the water.

Visit the local cheese makers- Bruny Island Cheese Co. for lunch, settle in for a Cheese Platter & Wood Oven Pizza with tea or coffee or enjoy locally brewed beer or cider to accompany your lunch.
