Cloudy Bay, South Bruny: where Nature's heart beats strong amid the hills

Cloudy Bay was initially named l’baie Mauvaise by French explorer Bruni D'Entrecasteaux in 1792, after 1822 it was marked on the maps of the time as Bad Bay, and after 1859 became known as Bad or Cloudy Bay.


Pine Control Project

In late 2013, Bruny Island Coastal Retreats decided to undertake a massive and rather unique eradication project. Our aim was to control the radiata pine infestation which was threatening to overrun the native bushland at our 900 acre property on South Bruny.

* Henry David Thoreau
