Situated on the quieter more intimate end of Bruny Island this charming, eclectic beach house was built with an artists eye using many recycled materials . It is a relaxed, romantic, light filled sea side home and peaceful retreat.
Perched amidst the privacy of the tree tops, wander down thru its rambling bush garden and cross the road onto a gorgeous gentle swimming beach.
The panoramic outlook and wonderful water views invite you to sit back, unwind and watch the clouds roll by.

Local Area
On foot:
If you make your way down through the bush garden path you will cross the road onto a lovely swimming beach ( child friendly) which is also great for kayaking and snorkeling around the rocks.
There are several other nice beaches within walking distance.
Head north along the beach front and in 5-6 minutes you will see steps leading up to the local café and gallery (The Jetty Cafe) that keeps seasonal hours so check the website. It serves espresso coffee, breakfast and lunch. You can book for Friday night fish and chips.
If you keep heading north you will see our local jetty where you can fish for squid or flat-head .
If you keep walking another couple of minutes north along the beach you will see a gate leading into a paddock (it’s okay to enter) and follow the path and history trail signs . Make your way around the tip of the island to ocean cliffs on the eastern side of the island (wonderful at sunrise!). Suggest you wear long pants walking through this grassy area in the summer months.

Alternatively you can head south at the bottom of Cloud garden : turn left and walk along the beach front road or around the rocks at low tide and you will reach the very beautiful Nebraska beach- an exceptionally long beach dotted with Shacks, where there are sandstone caves at its southernmost end ( this is a good 40 minute walk there and back) . You might find a few oysters on the rocks at low tide.

Further afield- Beyond Dennes Point

North Bruny is the less touristic end of the island, so it is generally quieter, and many travelers prefer this, but it can also serve as a good base for exploring the rest of Bruny Island. Jump in the car and head around the point along Killora Road to cruise around the back roads of nearby Barnes Bay.
OR for a longer outing, head to the South Island along Main Road back to the Dennes point turn off, and turn left . You will pass an Oyster Bar ‘Get Shucked’ at Great Bay (they make a good Bloody Mary). Bruny Island Honey supplies are located on your way to The Neck. Climb the stairs at the Neck for a spectacular lookout over north and south Bruny.

There are many lovely day walks in the national parks (through bush, rain forest and coastal trails) on South Bruny Island. I recommend Cape Queen Elizabeth at low tide or Fluted Cape (steeper but spectacular).
* Feel free to borrow the Thermos under the kitchen sink and the small back pack in the laundry for your excursions.

There is a good surf beach for swimming at Adventure Bay. There is a surf break at Cloudy Bay but be prepared to be fully wet suited and it is best suited to experienced surfers. The lighthouse on South Bruny is quite a drive but there can be spectacular sunsets in winter around 4.30pm with snow-capped mountains in the distance on a clear evening.
On South Bruny there are several tourist facilities if you feel like a bit more worldlier interaction. There is a pub, shop, pharmacy and health center at Alonnaha and a winery further south. Pennicott Wilderness boat tours ( need to book ) , a chocolate factory and tiny local museum are in the vicinity of Adventure Bay where you will also find a well-stocked general store with take away food and petrol pump.

As an artist, I was drawn into Bruny's beautiful landscapes some twenty plus years ago. Building Cloud Garden was a long held dream come true. It is a magical place and I hope you enjoy being there as much as I do.
