What to Expect
Drive along the coast for some spectacular views of Hobart and the beautiful Derwent River, before heading to Kingston; Hobart's fastest growing town. You'll skirt the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, which is noted for its aquaculture developments, then pass through the tiny town of Snug and into the boating village of Kettering.
Drive onto the ferry for the crossing to Bruny Island, and enjoy a delicious complimentary morning tea on Bruny Island, where you can look for native wildlife along the Neck beside Isthmus Bay. Board the beautiful cruise boat at the Adventure Bay and make your way through the stark 984-foot high Jurassic dolerite cliffs.
You'll then reach the famed Breathing Rock, the spectacle of an explosive blowhole, before continuing past the pristine rainforests and stunning Triassic sandstone cliffs.
End the tour at the Shearwater (Mutton-bird) rookeries and the fascinating Friar Rocks, home to over a thousand Australian fur seals and sea bird nesting areas.
