Bruny Island

Bruny Island / Channel


Did you hear about the yellow boat trip around Australia, raising money to eradicate Polio?  Bruny Island is the home of Pennicott adventure tours, a bit less challening than the yellow boat, trip but an ideal tourist adventure.

The Channel Region includes Hobart's southern suburbs and rural towns such as Snug and Middleton. Rolling hills and water views are typical of this region. Industries include fishing, cattle, sheep, goat, pig, fish and fruit farming.

Bruny Island is reached by car ferry from Kettering. The island is a hive of producers, including oysters, cheese, fudge and wine. At Cape Bruny, the southern-most point, there is a spectacular lighthouse looking out on the Southern Ocean.
