Drive onto the ferry and the short but captivating ride will be over before you have time to even enjoy the sights, so make sure you get out of the car for the necessary selfies!

As you traverse the island’s scenic routes, we invite you to join us on a virtual road trip, discovering the most captivating places to say “I do,” hidden gems waiting to be explored, and exquisite culinary experiences that tantalise your taste buds. Buckle up and let the adventure begin…
The Neck, a slender stretch joining North and South Bruny, on one side a stretch of coastal waves and white sand, the other side a bay of wildlife, birds and gentle breeze.
At its peak sits the Truganni Lookout, a spot that promises breathtaking views and very sore leg muscles. Take a moment to rest and stretch your legs at the top, with unforgettable moment of calm and wonder.

At the fork in the road head right to Bruny Lighthouse, the perfect backdrop for an epic portrait session. Perched atop rugged cliffs, overlooking the wild Southern Ocean, the lighthouse stands as a symbol of endurance against the backdrop of dramatic coastal beauty.
