Up Close and Personal
Bruny Island Cruises
Take an award-winning 3 Hour Wilderness Cruise exploring the rugged coastline of Bruny Island in southern Tasmania. Enter deep sea caves, pass through the narrow gap between the coast and 'The Monument' and feel the power of nature at the point where the Tasman Sea meets the might of the Southern Ocean.
Time to experience bay-to-bar dining! Get Shucked has a fully licensed oyster bar connected to the Oyster farm. You can grab a seat in the sun, a plate of your favourite oysters, a glass of Tassie’s finest wine and immerse yourself in a true aquaculture experience. From where you sit you’ll see the telltale buoys of the oyster farm, bobbing in the glittering bay; in the processing shed behind you, you’ll see the oysters getting sorted; and if you wander inside you can marvel at the fastest shuckers in the south as they do their thing.
Visit Bruny Island Premium Wines carved from bush and pastureland on the outskirts of the sleepy little island settlement of Lunawanna on Bruny Island. Bruny Island Premium Wines is a family-run business that is passionate about providing customers with a unique, enjoyable, local experience with a strong connection between their premium, handcrafted wines, and the island’s fine produce.
Experience the Island on Foot
The rock shelf walk is perfect at low tide and takes about 1 1/2 hours. This walk weaves its way along Satellite Island's ancient rock shelf in and out of hidden coves and pebble beaches. Take a basket and oyster-shucking knife with you and taste wild oysters straight off the rocks. Watch out for ancient fossils on the cliff face and keep an eye on the water for the local dolphin pod and passing albatross, pied oystercatchers, seals, and pacific gulls.
Visit a Sea Farm
Satellite Island has been involved in aquaculture since the early 1960s. It has had some of Tasmania’s largest oyster leases in Southern Tasmania on the Middleton Shoal and at Isthmus Bay. Satellite Island was one of the founding Salmon farms in the Salmon Industry when it began in Tasmania in the 1980s.
