Tips from locals
One of the top two surf breaks in Tasmania. The D’Entrecasteaux Channel shelters Bruny Island’s western shores but the east and south coasts feel the full force of Antarctic swells. This makes Cloudy Bay one of the state’s best and most consistent beach breaks. Located in the South Bruny Island…
Beautiful stunning coastline. Famous surfing spot, and a great area to spot nature.
Stand on the edge of the world and watch the breakers roll in on the sand. Great beach and surfing.
It's an easy 10 minute drive to this iconic, long, wide and windswept beach. Views stretch from East Cloudy Head to Cape Bruny. Great spot for hiking the headland, strolling the beach, climbing the dunes or surfing the break at Middle Bay.

“We are lucky to live near one of our favourite places in Australia, the World Heritage listed Maria Island. The Spring Bay Wharf is located in Triabunna, just a 15 minutes drive from Kanyini, and is the departure point for the Maria Island Ferry and other scenic cruises. Ferry tickets can be purchased on the day at the information centre near the wharf. SUMMER TIMETABLE - September to April Ferry departs Triabunna 9am/ 10.30am/ 12pm/ 2.45pm (subject to demand, check online on the day or at information centre)/ 4.15pm IMPORTANT INFORMATION - There are no cafe or anywhere to purchase food or drinks on the island so you will have to take everything with you. We suggest making some sandwiches before you leave Kanyini and plan for it when you do your shopping. - You will need to purchase a National Park pass for your trip to Maria Island. This pass is valid for your whole group (up to 6 people). You can either purchase a day pass OR a multi park pass valid for 2 months which is the best option if you are in Tasmania for a bit longer.”

“The farthest point south one can drive in Australia. It is located on Recherche Bay on the edge of the Southwest National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The area is known for its scenic beauty of deserted white beaches and turquoise waters of Recherche Bay and a variety of short and multi-day bushwalks including the end of the 82 km South Coast Track, recommended for experienced bushwalkers equipped for wilderness walking. Just head south!”
