Bruny Island is a beautiful small island in southern Tasmania, accessed by ferry from Kettering, south of Hobart. It is easily accessible from Hobart for a day trip, but even better for a weekend or longer break.
Lonely Planet posted this article on some of the top experiences to be had in Tasmania a while ago, however we agree that these are some of the must do's.
We had a lovely day trip recently, from Hobart to the Tasman Peninsula. Dale's brother and his family (who live in Launceston) were spending a few days down there and we took the opportunity to head there for the day to catch up with them all and to also reacquaint ourselves with the area. The drive from Hobart to Port Arthur was around 100km and took us 90 minutes from Sandy Bay.
This post was written in response to a question we came across on Twitter. We have put together some thoughts on what to do on your weekend trip to Tasmania.
