About this Hobart Tour
With a rumble in your tummy, your story begins once you've set foot on this enchanting isle. Time falls away as you explore its environs and marvel at its zesty scenery. You'll visit premier providores and hear the stories behind their harvests. This is more than a tasting tour of specialties all grown, made, or reaped on pristine Bruny Island. At each stop, you'll relax awhile and take total pleasure in a decadently immersive experience.
Bruny Island Cheese Co. crafts and matures artisanal cheeses using traditional methods. With a founder whose mania began with a bucket of fresh goat's milk, but who employs cows too, they farm sustainably, believing happy animals make the milk that make the famous cheese. At Get Shucked, pop plump Pacific oysters straight from the shell. Catch the scoop on the 12-month cultivation process and vital D´Entrecasteaux Channel waters.
Beachfront Bruny Island Berry Farm bursts on family land passed down since 1880. Stroll, pick, and bite their bounty. Australia's southernmost vineyard yields cool-climate Bruny Island Premium Wines, in calm, clear autumn days ideal for the slow fruit ripening required. Lately, the Scots must be raising a brow over the island's award-winning single malts. Have a nip at House of Whisky, a distillery with water vistas almost as stunning.
For the sweet tooth, nobody can resist Hiba's secret fudge, truffle, and chocolate recipes.This Adventure Bay kitchen is in a private home on 25 acres of English gardens not open to the public. Roam Two Tree Point, a deserted beach where Captain Cook collected ship water and ancient Mavista Rainforest to spot rare, white Bennett's wallabies. Finally, linger on "The Neck," a slim strip stretching and curving away for 360-degree ocean views. Now that's a happy ending.
Gather 'round the family table
Way down here, on this sparsely populated island, off an island at the edge of the world, many providores keep it in the family, nurturing their livelihoods closely, among relatives. Some come from a long line too, like the folks at Bruny Island Premium Wines. Fruit growing runs in the Dillons' veins, not just their vines. They can trace a direct heritage back to one of Bruny's first settlers, who arrived at Coal Point in 1878.
