About 50km long but with a population of just 650 permanent residents Bruny Island was for many years Tasmania’s best kept secret. In recent years, however, the island has come to capture the imagination and interest of Tasmanians and international visitors alike.
Lying at the edge of the Southern Ocean, the island is blessed with spectacular rugged scenery, pristine beaches and an abundance of wildlife. The extraordinary beauty of the island has attracted a unique band of locals who use Bruny Island’s pure environment to craft and grow some of Tasmania’s finest foods.
Bruny Island is like a microcosm of Tasmania – all of its goodness in a bite sized version. Freshly shucked oysters, cliff-hugging walks, Pinot noir, wildlife and heritage, empty beaches and far flung lighthouses.
