Trip highlights


  • Experience the best of Bruny Island on foot
  • Sample locally produced food and wine
  • Visit Ross O'Meara's Bruny Island Food and an oyster farm
  • Stay in exclusive luxury tented camps
  • Wildlife encounters

This luxury three-day walk takes you from Tasmania’s capital via private boat to Bruny Island, home to some of Tasmania's most preserved landscapes. The island, which is around 50km in length, is actually two islands joined together by an isthmus. Home to rare and endangered plants and animals, this is Tasmanian wilderness at its very best. After traversing headlands where the next stop is Antarctica retreat back to camp, built completely off-the-grid, with luxury in mind. Crisp sheets on king-sized beds and an outdoor shower framed by towering Eucalypts await. What makes the trip so special is access to Bruny’s lesser-known gems. Meet a local oyster farmer who’ll shuck you an oyster as pristine waters swirl about your ankles then drop in on a neighbour’s farm, Ross O'Meara from Gourmet Farmer fame, to collect free-range pork that has been slow cooking in their smoker for us overnight. This is a highlight packed long weekend like no other.


This morning you will meet at Daci & Daci Bakers 9-11 Murray St, Hobart at 7:30 am on the waterfront of Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart. Here you will meet your guides before your cruise down to Bruny Island. Tea & Coffee will be served but please have breakfast before you arrive. Today our goal is to walk out to a spectacular cape on the east coast of Bruny Island. On returning from our walk we will wade out into the crystal clear waters of Great Bay to learn how the famous Bruny Island oysters are farmed and shuck them straight out of the water. The perfect way to cool down after a walk! Next stop; our camp. After a hot shower, join us in the dining house for a drink and to share stories of the day’s adventures as the guides busy themselves preparing your dinner sourced from either on the island or in the waters surrounding it. Walk: 12km, 5-6 hours return

Meals:  L,D

Day two might begin with a gentle thumping past your tent. While the inquisitive wallaby isn’t your wake up call, his visit, or the promise of warm croissants might lure you from your crisp sheets of king-size luxury to reunite with us at the rustic wooden dining table once more. Today’s walk is East Cloudy Head for views of Tasmania’s far south and the wild Southern Ocean. The five-hour journey begins by walking the length of Cloudy Bay Beach. Windswept and beautiful, the walk then leads us into coastal heath and up toward spectacular views of Bruny Island’s rugged south coast. Back at camp enjoy time to sit on the deck, walk among the ferns, partake in another lavish shower or simply read a book while your guides prepare the evening meal. Walk: 14km return, 5-6 hours

Meals:  B,L,D

Enjoy a sleep in and a lazy breakfast or join us for an optional walk to explore the many and varied species of flora and fauna which make up our private 100 acre property. Once we farewell camp, our goal is to climb through the ancient Gondwanan rainforest to the highest point of Bruny Island, Mt Mangana. The return trip to Hobart offers a scenic farewell to your adventure. Before you know it you’ll be back at the Tasmanian capital, around 6pm, likely wondering if the long weekend was one big thrilling daydream from your office chair. Walk: 4km, 3 hours

Meals:  B,L
