Bruny Island – Sunset Lighthouse Tour

1 Hour
Category:


 

Bruny Island sits off the Southeast coast of Tasmania. The local Bruny Island community are producing some of the finest food products in Tasmania and on the world stage, making this one of the best food tours in Tasmania departing Hobart.

A short 30 minute drive departing Hobart, following the D’entrecasteaux channel to Kettering, where the Bruny ferry departs on its short 15 min crossing.

The coastlines are dominated by towering dolerite sea cliffs, low mountains, seabirds, penguin colonies, seals, whales, shipwrecks and sweeping white sandy beaches.

Captain Cook, Furneaux, D’entrecasteaux and Bligh were some of the early explorers that anchored in Adventure Bay, a sheltered anchorage on the South Island. Whaling and coal mining were amongst the earliest industries in Adventure Bay. Bruny Island is approximately 75km long – about half the size of Singapore, and has a population of around 700.

Experience some of the Bruny Island best attractions, Bruny Island sights, history, culture, wildlife and Bruny Island food. Take the guess work and risk out of driving yourself… relax and enjoy one of Tasmania’s top Hobart day tours as rated on TripAdvisor.

Sunset Lighthouse Tour – from $45

Join our very special Sunset Lighthouse Tour for small groups only on Friday and Saturday evenings. “Self drive” into the South Bruny National Park and arrive at the Cape Bruny Light Station – well before sunset. Your guide will meet you in the main car park and issue you with headlamps and jackets prior to ascending the lighthouse. Learn about the life of a lighthouse keeper and watch the sun set over the Mountain ranges of Southern Tasmania. Hear the ocean pounding the cliffs below, see Shortailed Shearwater landing nearby and Albatross hugging the wave tops. This is a very special and exclusive experience for a select few. At night the Cape Bruny Light station is arguably one of the best locations in Tasmania to watch the Southern Aurora.

Exclusive experience for a select few.

Self drive $45 per person – pre-booking is essential
