We -- two middle-aged tourists from the US and two young adults living in Oz -- enjoyed our trip to Bruny Island perhaps more than any other part of our Tasmanian holiday. We drove our rental car first to the Bruny Island Lighthouse: a wonderful combination of green, grassy slopes and craggy, rocky coast. Then we ventured back north to a secluded area off Cloudy Bay Lagoon that was truly heavenly. After that, we drove to the other side of the island and hiked in the forest reserve. Unfortunately, we mistook a hunter's track for the actual trail, and ended up with leeches crawling all over our legs -- but eventually, we figured out our mistake and discovered the truly wonderful trail. (Perhaps not a part of South Bruny Natl Park proper, but certainly on South Bruny Island).
One of the best things about South Bruny is that, on the way back to the ferry, you pass through North Bruny -- where you can stop and sample some truly great local cheese, and then stop at a distillery. What's not to like?
