There are only a few ways to get around once you arrive on Bruny. We like it that way! Arrive via your own/hire car or on a tour from Hobart. There is no public transport once you arrive on Bruny so unless you’re planning to walk, come on wheels.
Bruny is about 60km from top to bottom, but there are no major highways here. Think lots of bends on the main sealed sections, and plenty of tricky gravel roads as well. We like things simple and invite you to adopt a slower pace when you get here. Keep an eye out for our wildlife. Bruny’s roads are full of the unexpected, whether it’s a pack of enthusiastic locals riding, or a curious echidna dawdling out.
Some of Bruny’s main attractions are a decent drive from the ferry terminal so plan your trip carefully, especially if you’re just coming for a day. It’s better to choose a few destinations for longer than to whizz around the island with a checklist. Just ask a local – you won’t get to meet Bruny that way.
Stay a little longer if you can. Spend a night … or three.
This island is a wild place so do take care out there. The weather can change quickly, gravel roads urge you to slow
down, and in far reaches, phone reception can be intermittent.
