Bruny Island Coastal Retreats Operations Manager Ben Keinhuis was on hand to witness Hamish Renwick’s victory in the 2018 HIF Bruny Surfing Open Classic.
Conditions were tough going in the 1 – 3 meter surf but Hamish was able to find opportunities to demonstrate his skills with an 8.5 scoring wave to clinch the “AIRASIA Wave of the day award” which also helped seal his victory in the Open Mens Final.
Congratulations to Hamish, all the divisional winners (Luca, Linkan, Stella, Mark, Luke), competitors and sponsors on a great event.

Pine Control Project

In late 2013, Bruny Island Lodge 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.

Keepers of the Light: Cape Bruny Lighthouse

Cape Bruny Light keepers have been doing battle with nature since 1838. Tending the light to ensure that maritime travellers did not meet the same grisly end as so many before them had done, it was an arduous and unrelenting life.
