Discover a natural paradise where unique flora and fauna and Tasmania's endemic birds are being looked after by passionate naturalists. Explore the island's diverse natural history with expert local nature guides
who will be teaching you about local flora, fauna and the importance of species and habitat protection. The walk also includes an extensive tour of Inala's nature conservation sanctuary, where you can see
local animals and rare birds close-up.
Our award-winning Bruny Island Walk takes you by private boat from the waterfront of Tasmania’s capital Hobart to Bruny Island. During your visit you will be treated to coastal walks, produce directly from the source, luxury camping and exquisite meals. What makes this walk so special is access to Bruny’s lesser-known gems. A highlight of this trip is a full day at the Inala Private Conservation Reserve, 1,500 acres conservation property of rich diverse habitat. Here you will learn about Tasmania's endemic birds and rich wildlife and various conservation projects. Finally, retreat back to camp, built completely off-the-grid, with luxury in mind. Crisp sheets on king-sized beds and an outdoor shower framed by towering Eucalypts await.
Cape Queen Elizabeth and Great Bay (approx. 5-6 hours walking)
This morning you will meet your tour guides and fellow guests on the waterfront of Tasmania's capital city, Hobart. We meet at Daci & Daci Bakers, 7 Murray Street, Hobart at 730AM. Step aboard your private boat and let the adventure begin with a cruise down the Derwent River to Bruny Island. If the sea and bird life is good then we can stay out and enjoy it. Today our goal is to walk out towards a spectacular cape on the east coast of Bruny Island. Excellent birding opportunities present in the first kilometre, at the lagoons and on Miles Beach. Our guides will create the right balance between walking and bird watching with a stop for lunch on Miles Beach. Your nature guide will tell you the behaviours and stories of all the wildlife we encounter on route. This can include several Tasmanian Endemic birds such as Yellow Wattlebird, Dusky Robin and Yellow-throated Honeyeater. You may also get to enjoy the wonderful Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos feasting on the Banksia bushes and as you walk along the stunning beaches you will learn the conservation stories surrounding the Hooded Plovers, Little Penguins and Short-tailed Shearwaters ( Mutton birds). On returning from our walk we will wade out into the crystal clear waters of Great Bay to learn how the famous Bruny Island oysters are farmed and shuck them straight out of the water. The perfect way to cool down after a walk! Next stop; our camp. After a hot shower, join us in the dining house for a drink and to share stories of the day’s adventures as the guides busy themselves preparing your dinner sourced from either on the island or in the waters surrounding it.
