Your private guide and car will pick you up from your accommodation or Hobart cruise ship terminal and take you south to Kettering, a beautiful town on the shores of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
Here you will take the car ferry across to Bruny Island where your first stop for the day is Bruny Island Cheese Company, started by Nick Haddow, a fine artisan cheese maker, beermaker and author who features regularly on the Gourmet Farmer. Here you can sit and enjoy a cheese tasting, have a coffee or sample their beer.
Along the road a little further we make a sweet visit with Bruny Island Honey who have been collecting honey from their 400 hives on the island for over 20 years. They produce Prickly Box, Manuka and a variety of other honeys, skincare products and treats. Tastings are free so help yourself.
The Neck our next stop, is an isthmus of land which connects the north and south of Bruny. You can take the stairs up to the top of the lookout for a spectacular 360 degree view.
First stop on the southern end of the island is Bruny Island Chocolate Company where you can purchase some of their famous Bruny Island Fudge.
You will then take the journey further south into the rich farming area of the island to Bruny Island Premium Wines for lunch and have the opportunity to try their wines and ciders.
After lunch there is a stop at Get Shucked Oysters where you have the opportunity to taste some of the freshest and best oysters in Tasmania.
Last stop before the ferry is Bruny Island House of Whisky who make their own delicious Single Malt Whisky, Trappers Hut and also provide tastings and sales for over 110 of Tasmania’s best whiskies.
