Much of the Island remains an untouched wonderland of native plants, blue seas & sky. The air is clean & the feeling of escape from the city when you board the Bruny Island ferry is matchless.
South Bruny national park is a key feature in the epic landscape of Bruny Island & is a true asset to Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife.
Geologically Bruny Island is comprised of two islands - North Bruny Island & South Bruny Island - these two Islands are irrevocably joined by a long sandy isthmus of land, like a sandy bridge between the two Islands.
Bruny Island also has a traditional Aboriginal name which is Alonnah Lunawanna. Two hamlets on the Island have taken these names. The township of Alonnah is situated on South Bruny Island & overlooks satellite Island. There is also a township named Lunawanna which is also situated on South Bruny Island.
