Your guide to Bruny Island

All About Bruny Island

Bruny Island is a small island off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, and is arguably one of the most beautiful and untouched locations in Australia. Spanning only 100 kilometres in length, the island is bisected by a narrow strip of land called The Neck, also known as Truganini Lookout. On one side is North Bruny, which is mostly made up of farmlands. On the other is South Bruny, which is where most visitors to the island come.

Here you will find National Park Forests with an array of trails for bushwalks, stunning cliff tops, and pristine beaches with some of the best surfing in Australia. Bruny Island is also famous for its locally produced wines, cider, beer, and cheeses. The island is also known for its abundant supply of oysters. The Neck offers sweeping views of the sea and surrounding landscapes, and the island’s most prominent landmark, Cape Bruny Lighthouse, is said to be the second oldest surviving lighthouse in Australia.


The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Bruny Island

Bruny Island is open all year round, but for many, the best time to visit is September to February when the weather is warmer and drier. It is also when your chances of seeing the island’s penguins are higher. For foodies, March, April, and May are the best months to sample the island’s wines and fresh Pacific oysters. If you want to see the southern right and humpback whales, their migratory path passes the island from May to July, and back again from September till November.

Whenever you decide to visit, Bruny Island’s weather is constantly changing, so even in summer it is sensible to pack a jacket. When it comes to accommodation in Bruny Island, there is something for all budgets and tastes — from beachside apartments and cottages to campgrounds and island retreats.


Top things to do in Bruny Island

The Neck

Head to The Neck, one of the most scenic points on the island. Park in the small car park and take a short walk up the staircase to Truganini Lookout, where you will enjoy spectacular 360-degree views of the island and beyond. The beach on the eastern side of The Neck is where you can hopefully catch a glimpse of the island’s penguins.

Cape Bruny Lighthouse

On the southernmost point of the island you’ll find the Cape Bruny Lighthouse. It is about a 45-minute drive from The Neck and offers spectacular views of the island. The Lighthouse was first lit in 1838 and is the second oldest in Australia. From here you will see rugged coastlines, rolling hills, and wide beaches. You may also spot the many wild birds that make their home here.

Adventure Bay

Take a drive to Adventure Bay in the Bruny Island National Park — which offers safe and sheltered areas for swimming, as well as one of the best places to spot whales from June to October. There are numerous walking trails to explore, including the short walk to the remains of an old whaling station at Grass Point, or a two hour walk to Fluted Cape, for views out to the Tasman Peninsula.
