Join Life’s an Adventure on this fantastic 3 day Bruny Island walk.

Bruny Island is an untouched wonder situated just off the southern-east coast of Tasmania, a 15-minute ferry ride from mainland Tasmania.

This wonderfully diverse landscape offers diverse flora and fauna as well as many threatened and endemic species. On our 3-day walking experience, you will explore the natural delights of the island’s diverse landscapes and wildlife as well as tasting the tantalising local produce food which will undoubtedly leave you wanting more, including extravagant cheese, fresh oysters and mellow wine.

Guide Barry was a sheer delight! He could not do enough for us. Helpful, friendly, and even his puns and singing were welcomed! He went out of his way to look after us. I could not give him enough praise - thanks Barry! Meals were unbelievably good. Well and truly exceeded expectations! Salmon, oysters, cheeses, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, ragout, omelette - great chef Barry and great suppliers! And, of course, the wine :) and the tastings . Accommodation was excellent - well-appointed, comfortable, great location. Tour above expectations - Have mainly done unguided hikes, but this walk confirmed that Life's An Adventure is the way to go. Really could not fault it for a mix of walking and gourmet experience. Barry also made sure that we kept to time, but we were never hurried

Guides were excellent. Joel was a really good guide I have had Barry as a guide before He was really good the first time This time he has matured and become more confident and was even better than before. The guides you choose are really good at their jobs and ensure the treks are very successful. Meals were excellent - The bruny island hotel was beautiful. I did not expect such great food from such a remote place. The food the boys cooked was very good too. The accommodation was great. Because I have been on your tours before and I knew the high standard that you provide. And I was definitely not disappointed
