BrunyIsland.au is passionate about the preservation and celebration of the Island’s extraordinary beauty and rich cultural landscape. The stewardship of our land and the wildlife that inhabit it are our highest priority. We cater for guests who share these values and who seek the “tonic of wildness” - away from the crowds, the endless shops, and the clamor of city life.
Bruny Island is a microcosm of the Tasmanian mainland. It is blessed with an extraordinarily diverse range of distinct environments - spectacular coastlines, geological wonders, beaches, rainforests, mountains, lagoons, abundant flora and fauna - an environmental cornucopia; all at your doorstep!
Our properties fully encompass this environmental diversity offering a range of spectacular settings for communing with the Island’s elemental splendour. Henry David Thoreau’s quote, “I have a room all to myself; it is nature...”, wonderfully encapsulates the experience we aim to evoke.
In keeping with this ethos, we enthusiastically support individuals, organisations, and projects that work to protect the cultural and environmental characteristics that make Bruny Island the very special place it is.
On a sunny weekend during February 2020, BrunyIsland.au was privileged to be able to offer one of our nature sanctuaries complimentarily to assist in the facilitation of Tasmania's first 'Younger Heroes' program; a fabulous non for profit, registered charity.
In late 2013, BrunyIsland.au undertook a massive and rather unique weed eradication project. Our aim was to control the radiata pine infestation which was threatening to overrun the native bushland at our 900 acre 'Bruny Island Lodge' property on South Bruny.
