Bruny Boathouse Accommodation

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Bruny Boathouse is situated at Alonnah, exactly thirty minutes from the ferry at Roberts Point. If you have come to relax and get away from it all, then this is the place for you. Sit in the Poang chair and take in the magnificent views, read a book, or play a game from the games provided. Fish from the jetty, swim at the child friendly beach or simply collect shells from Shell Beach in front of the property.

The historic Dray walking track starts just north of the property and the History room is on the main road next to the police station.

The Bruny Island Hotel is further down the road and provides meals, and there is a small shop that provides essentials opposite the Hotel.

We have planted close to 200 Tasmanian native plants on the property. You will observe the bird life on Bruny Island is incredible. On each excursion different species of birds can be seen.

You may be lucky to see a pod of dolphins swimming in the Channel out in front.

The Boathouse has double glazed windows and is fully insulated as it is newly built. Polished Tasmanian oak floorboards are throughout the property and the kitchen is well equipped with a large microwave oven and a generous size fridge/freezer.

Travel south to Tasmania's southern-most vineyard and further to the historic Cape Bruny lighthouse. Over to Adventure Bay, one of Australia's most significant bays in terms of history, and take in many local attractions including wildlife tours, the berry farm, the chocolate factory and more lovely walks.

Travelling north, take in the cheese factory, oyster farm and the excellent gallery at Dennes Point which features work of local artists.

Penguins can be seen at the Neck and a ranger is often present during the summer months.

The Boathouse is between north and south Bruny, so thus ideally situated to partake in many of these activities.

Love this boathouse!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit, this time for a week. We love the location, the stunning view, the boathouse is as pictured and communication with Helen is easy. Clean, comfortable, quiet and situated in the middle of the island which makes it perfect for exploring. We have booked a 3rd visit for 3 weeks! Thanks Helen.
