Bruny Island All Inclusive 7-Course Gourmet Day Trip from Hobart
Upon arrival, your tour starts with a short drive to your first destination, Bruny Island Cheese Company. Sit down as a group and enjoy a private meet-and-greet with the head cheese maker to learn how they craft their artisan cheeses from sustainably farmed cow's and goat's milk. See the cheese maturing room, share generous platters of Bruny Island cheeses and taste hand-crafted ale.
Next up, visit Get Shucked Oysters and enjoy half a dozen oysters per person, freshly shucked by your server, who shares with you the harvesting story. Feel free to snap photos from your vantage point overlooking the waters where the oysters are farmed. Then continue to Bruny Island Berry Farm for a stroll through the berry fields, pluck sweet, juicy berries straight from the patch (in season) and enjoy a berry inspired morning tea and hot tea or coffee.
Refreshed and relaxed, work off some of your food by taking a short walk along a spectacular white-sand beach, and stop at Two Tree Point, the heritage-listed site where Captain Cook replenished water supplies for his ship Endeavor. Nearby, look for rare white wallabies on our private reserve. You may also spot echidnas and some of the 12 species of endemic birds.
Hop back on your bus to visit Bruny Island Premium Wines, enjoy a wine tasting Australia's southern-most vineyard before savouring a seasonal cellar door lunch accompanied by a wine of your choice. Be sure to save room for handmade chocolate treats at your next destination, Bruny Island Chocolate Company, home of the handmade fudge. Walk through the gardens and snap a photo of the ocean outlook that surrounds the boutique chocolate shop. More sweet treats to come at Bruny Island Honey. Sample a variety of locally harvested Honey. Meet the bee keepers and learn the harvesting process.
Stop at the Neck, a strip of land connecting the island’s northern and southern sections. Here you can along the deserted beach, dip your feet in the water, see the Truganini Memorial and enjoy sweeping views from the lookout. Conclude your food journey with a glass of award-winning Tasmanian whiskey from the Bruny Island House of Whisky. See their great wall of whiskies for yourself, a highlight for the whisky enthusiast!

We went on a Bruny Island Food Tour with Sam. He was insightful and delightful. The food on the tour was great, and we were definitely full by the end! It was the perfect amount of eating, drinking and sight-seeing. The highlight definitely was a stop at the Worlds Biggest Garden Fork - certainly a sight to behold. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
Wonderful day out with an excellent guide. The food highlight for me was the cheese tasting, the oysters not so much personal preference but it is great that this company supports local producers. This is a family run business and they clearly love Tasmania and want to sho it at its best. Lunch was good. Fab company. Bruny Island is a must do if you visit Hobart.
lots of stops for interesting food, oysters, wine and cheese and whiskey. Excellent meal. Very well organized.
The tour guide, Tim, was very friendly, helpful and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the activities, food and sights. Highly recommended.
The tour gives a nice meet-up with local businesses as well as the opportunity to see Bruny Island. A great way to see the Island in one day if that is all the time you can spend on it. The Island is definitely worth visiting and the food was really good! Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Although the food was good, I would not describe it as a 7-course trip as for most of the food you get to taste samples. There are a lot of samples, but nonetheless it is not a 7-course trip neither described as that by the organisers themselves
