Bruny Island is less than an hour’s drive on a high quality sealed highway from Hobart, Tasmania’s capital city. Drive to the town of Kettering beside the D’Entrecasteaux Channel where you join a vehicular ferry for a 15 minute crossing to Roberts Point on North Bruny Island.
North Bruny and South Bruny are joined by an extremely narrow strip of land called “The Neck”. In total the approximate dimensions of the Island are about 70 kms by 24 kms at the widest points. There are about 300 kilometres of roads to explore.
The island is a mixture of level plains, small mountains and plateaux. Much of the western side of South Bruny has high sheer cliffs dropping down to the sea.
It is a protected location for seal and sea bird colonies. Wildlife abounds on Bruny Island. You’ll be amazed at the vast numbers of White Kangaroos, Wallabies, Seals, Penguins, Echidna, rabbits and Dolphins. Whales also visit during the Australian Spring season.
