Adventure Bay

Adventure Bay - Hobart Region - Tasmania

Feel a million miles away as you leave the outside world behind and venture across to Bruny Island, only 35 minutes drive from Hobart and a 20 minute ferry ride from Kettering. Adventure Bay is the principal town on Bruny island which remains largely untouched leaving a predominantly flawless landscape. Although the island appears to be two islands it is actually connected by a narrow isthmus, aka The Neck, which joins the north and south of Bruny. This stretch of land is flanked by the thunderous waves of the Pacific Ocean on one side and the calm waves of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel on the other. This connection of land is extremely vital to native wildlife and visitors are able to observe short-tailed shearwaters and fairy penguins from the purpose built boardwalks and viewing platforms during warmer months from September to February.

Adventure Bay offers, perhaps one of Tasmania's greatest attractions aboard a 3 hour Eco-cruise. Teaching passengers about the ecological aspects of the coastline whilst taking in views of penguins, dolphins, seal colonies, humpback whales and prolific birdlife in this fascinating region. If keeping your feet firmly planted on the ground is more your thing then strap up those laces and get amongst the spoils of mother nature because Bruny Island is a bushwalker's paradise. Head out to Mavista Falls, Cape Queen Elizabeth and South Bruny National Park. Treat your taste-buds at the Bruny Island Cheese Co, Get Shucked Oyster Farm and the Hothouse Cafe.

Enrich your spirit on Bruny Island.
