Bruny Island is one of the most spectacular and unspoilt natural beauty spots in Tasmania. At Bruny Island Coastal Retreats we provide a variety of high-quality accommodation options that immerse visitors in this natural beauty. Each of our properties has been selected because it offers a unique Bruny Island experience and everyone has been fitted with comfortable, quality fixtures. From five-star, architect-designed sophistication to breathtaking ocean views and rustic timber cottages nestled deep in old-growth forest, this is the best way to experience everything Bruny Island has to offer.
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.
I have a room to myself and it is nature *
From the ramblings of a meandering mind, today I am wondering if the appreciation of nature is an intrinsic part of our soul or is something that we choose to acknowledge.
* Henry David Thoreau
