Overview
Enjoy the bounty of Bruny Island on a full-day gourmet food tour that introduces you to seven local producers. You’ll enjoy seven courses that include premium cheeses, oysters, berries (in season), wine, whiskey and chocolates, along with a lovely winery lunch. Have time to appreciate the island’s stunning scenery during stops at historic Two Tree Point in Adventure Bay, the Bruny Island Neck, white-sand beaches and privately owned reserves home to rare white wallabies. You can expect enough food and drink to satisfy a hearty appetite on this all-inclusive tour from Hobart.
Highlights
  • Follow Bruny Island's produce from farm to table on this culinary tour
  • Get acquainted with local food purveyors via a guide
  • Learn about local products and have lunch at a local winery
  • Visit a oyster harvester, chocolatier, wine maker, honey company, cheese purveyor and a whisky and gin distillery
  • Round-trip transportation is included from Hobart hotels or a meeting point
What to Expect
Begin your Bruny culinary adventure with pickup from your Hobart hotel or by meeting at the central booking center. Board a minibus and transfer to Kettering, where you'll take the 15-minute ferry trip over to Bruny (ticket included). While you travel, your guide shares orienting information on the island's flora, fauna, and geology. Once you land on the island, the first destination is a cheese company for a private audience with the cheesemaker. Learn about how cheese is made from sheep's and goat's milk, see the cheese maturing room, and taste some products before moving on to the local oyster company. Learn about harvesting practices, snap photos of the fields, and taste some freshly shucked at your table. Next is the berry farm, where you can pick some yourself (in season) and drink some berry tea before heading out on a short walk along the coastline to Two Tree Point. At a nearby nature reserve, search for the rare white wallaby, native birds, and echidnas. Refuel with lunch at an island winery, accompanied by your choice of wine. Tour the vineyards and taste some samples, followed up with chocolates at your next stop, a boutique chocolate purveyor. Learn about how the chocolate is made, and then continue your sweet streak at the local honey company. Meet the beekeepers, see the hives, and learn about the honey harvesting process. Head out to the Neck, where you can walk along the sand spit and dip your feet in the water. Get epic views of the Truganini Memorial and toast your delicious, educational tour with a glass of tasmanian whiskey from a local distillery. Head back to Hobart the way you came, via ferry and minibus.

Our tour guide Tim was great and he had a lot of dad jokes. The tastings were good and just enough to not go overboard.
