Overview

Explore the scenic coastline and marine wildlife of Bruny Island on this tour of Tasmania. The island is made up of two parts joined together by an isthmus. It has great scenic beauty and is home to an amazing variety of wildlife besides being home to the second oldest lighthouse in Australia. It was built in 1836!

This tour will take you to the charming villages of Snug and Kettering. An informative commentary will give you a glimpse into local life and the fishing community that lives there. Located near the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Kettering is particularly popular and affords panoramic views of the coastline.

Enjoy an eco cruise that will take you along the coast, away from the usual holiday crowds. Keep an eye out for mutton birds and fairy penguins that might grace you with their presence. Drift on to ‘Nature’s Cathedral’ where the 300 metre high Jurassic dolerite cliffs will impress you.
