Bruny Island might be small, but it sure packs a lot in. It’s like a compact version of Tassie, filled with all of our favourite things – whisky, wine, berries, oysters, cheese, fudge… Oh my, whisk me away! But how to sample all of the things?! Never fear, here are our three top picks of Bruny Island tours that bring together the island’s gourmet produce and natural beauty. Your taste buds are sure to have a cracking good time. (Hot tip: elastic waistbands might start look look less hideous as the day goes on. They really are so practical.)

What would a Bruny Island adventure be without good food and something yummy to drink? There are so many great food and wine producers on the island. The first stop when you arrive on the ferry and typically the last as you are leaving the island is Bruny Island House of Whisky. A stop here will have you sampling all sorts of different Tasmanian produced whisky. There are many award winning drops to sample and plenty to learn from the very knowledgeable team behind this business . As some of you may know, not only do I have the @tassiegrammer account but I also run @tassiefoodguide, and I spend a lot of time traveling around Tasmania and elsewhere eating in many different places. One thing that I always seek out when possible are great platters that you typically find in wineries. Bruny Island House of Whisky have some of the best you will find anywhere . This business was previously known as the Bruny Island Smoke House, and it is the same owners who have just shifted focus slightly. They produce their own smoked meats, salmon and many other yummy goodies. And what they don’t produce themselves they source locally . The whisky and food tasting flight as pictured gives you the best of both of their products – great Tasmanian whisky and great local produce. I highly recommend giving this a try next time you are visiting Bruny Island . My Bruny Island adventure is unfortunately slowly coming to an end but keep following along for more a bit later tonight.
