At A Glance Departures

This five-day-four-night Bruny Island Gourmet Hike & Cycle tour offers you an active exploration of Bruny Island and Huon Valley by bike and foot, venturing off-the-beaten-paths to visit some of Tasmania's most wild and rugged landscapes as well as a burgeoning gourmet food and wine scene that must be tasted to be believed.

Located in the far south of Tasmania, Bruny Island is a magical place where the mountains and forests meet the Great Southern Ocean. This five-day adventure of Bruny Island and the south will provide unique opportunity for you to learn more about the fertile island and rich natural diversity of this remote region. Wheel you to some of the region's most delicious food experiences, including a 'drive through' oyster bar, whiskey tasting, a boutique chocolate factory, sheep's milk cheese sampling as well as visits to wine and cider producers. Burning off the calories will be a piece of cake as you explore Bruny Island's best vantage points by bike and foot for spectacular views back over the island and southern Tasmania.

You'll also board a wildlife cruise to spot dolphins, seals and a plethora of seabirds. Back on the mainland the southern Tasmania highlights continue with visits to the Tahune Airwalk and Hastings Cave, the largest dolomite cave in the southern hemisphere. As you head even further south you'll stop for a walk in the Hartz Mountains National Park before heading for the most southern point in Australia, Cockle Creek, from where you can set out to South Cape Bay - the final section of the famous South Coast Track.

The tour is fully vehicle supported so you can cycle and walk as much as you like. You only need to carry a day pack.

Accommodation is included each night. All meals are included for the duration of the walk and cycle tour as well as transfers to and from Hobart. Small groups of 12 walkers are hosted by two guides. All guides are highly experienced and knowledgeable.

  • FEATURES

    Bruny Island: Cruise to seal colonies, explore cliff-top trails and sample gourmet produce on Tasmania's wild Bruny Island. Just 40 kilometres from Hobart, Bruny is Tasmania's fourth largest island. Bruny Island has some of Tasmania's most beautifully preserved natural environments with abundant wildlife and stunning cliff top views.

    Bruny Island is a 362-square-kilometre island located off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, Australia. The island is separated from the Tasmanian mainland by the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, and its east coast lies within the Tasman Sea.


    The island is about 50 km long but appears to be two islands with North and South Bruny joined by a narrow strip of land called Bruny Island Neck (The Neck). Bruny Island Neck is an isthmus of land connecting north and south Bruny Island in southern Tasmania and offers stunning 360 degree views. This isthmus is an important habitat for native wildlife.

    Changes to Itineraries
    Local conditions may necessitate changes to sightseeing, walking and driving routes, camping and accommodation locations. While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    Accommodation
    reviews Bruny Island and Huon Valley was a fantastic place to visit. It was a great adventure hiking and bicycle riding off the beaten paths to some magical sites and spectacular views. The tour also gave us an opportunity to cycle to local business and do a little sampling of local produce. Our highlight of the tour was the visit to Hastings Caves & the Tahune Airwalk. The airwalk was magnificent - 50 meters above the river and Hastings Cave we were able to see some of their unusual inhabitants. They were both very magical places. We took home 5 days of great memories and a lot of knowledge. This was a very well organised tour.
