Adventure Bay is also the starting point for the acclaimed Pennicott Eco Wilderness Tours.
Bruny Island and especially Adventure Bay were visited by many early European explorers notably Captains Cook and Bligh. The Bligh Museum is a good source of information on them and other early explorers.
The Bruny History Room at Alonnah which is open seven days is highly recommended and gives a great insight into the early history of the island including whaling agriculture mining and forestry as well as the day to day lives of early Bruny settlers.
Adventure Bay is home to the famous albino (white) wallabies which are commonly seen,look into the trees and you may spot the endangered 40 spotted pardalote.
Look out to the sea to glimpse dolphins, seals, sea eagles, and even whales in season.
Travelling around the island you may like to make a night visit to the penguin rookery at the neck (hosted during summer) . A trip to the convict built Bruny Island Lighthouse at Cape Bruny with its spectacular views should not be missed and is typical of the amazing scenery you find where ever you travel on the island.
The Chocolate Factory near the Adventure Bay turnoff, Bruny Island Cheeses and Get Shucked Oysters at Great Bay, Bruny Island Premium Wines at Lunawanna, the Bruny Berry Farm at Adventure Bay are great examples of the wonderful fresh food and produce

Thanks Steve for hosting us at Ocean Cottage. We were surprised to receive the travel info for Bruny Island by mail a week or so after making the booking - very thoughtful!
It’s a lovely cottage by the water in adventure bay - perfect location! It’s a little cottage so it’s not super spacious but very cosy for the 6 of us. The pantry items come into handy when we are on the island - again very thoughtful. There are bikes available but we didn’t get to use them as we were only there for 2 nights. Would stay there again and probably longer next time.
Just Like Home in a Beautiful Location
Very comfortable and clean cottage with modern appliances. Would definitely recommend it to friends. Great kitchen that was well stocked with pots, crockery, cutlery etc., and some pantry items. Big BBQ was spotless and for those who can't go without technology, free Wi-Fi and a couple of televisions. The only thing I would suggest is at least one queen size bed.
Home away from home!
Beautiful home in the middle of Adventure Bay. Amazingly well stocked pantry complete with all kinds of spices, sauces and much more to help us to create, not just cook. Cosy, clean and comfortable in beautiful surroundings. It was wonderful falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Also, some great fishing spots close by. Very pleasant and accommodating host. Thanks for the extra night!
