It is often said that Bruny Island is like a microcosm of Tasmania with an amazing variety of environments compacted into an island that takes just one hour to drive across.

Our guided walks take you through varied terrain including beaches, rocky headlands, bush trails and rainforest and by the end of the Long Weekend you will feel like you know Bruny Island intimately.

The walks are challenging enough to support our questionable claim of being a ‘calorie neutral’ tour, but easy enough to be within most people’s ability. We recommend you be in good health and be moderately fit to undertake the trip.

One of the great aspects of our walks is that as we return to the same camp both nights, you do not have to carry a pack! Also, as each trip has two guides we are able to split the group according to ability if need be, challenging the fit walkers without pressuring walkers who prefer a more leisurely pace.

If you are wondering if these walks are within your ability, or perhaps if they are challenging enough for you, please contact us. We would love to have a chat.

Day 1: We walk out to a Cape on North Bruny Island for spectacular views across Storm Bay towards the Tasman Peninsula: 13km – 5-6 hours of walking.

Day 2: We explore the Southern end of Bruny Island. Depending on the weather we may choose to climb East Cloudy Head (292m) which juts out into the Southern Ocean or the slightly longer (but with less climbing) Labillardiere peninsula: Approx  14km –  5-6 hours walking

Day 3: Today we climb through beautiful Gondwanan rainforest to the highest point of Bruny Island: 4km – 3 hours walking

*All these walks are subject to change depending on weather and ability. We have a pretty flexible itinerary and like to cater to the needs of each specific group.
