Bruny Island or Freycinet?
Save

Arriving Thursday, leaving Monday. Is it too ambitious to include Hobart, Salamanca Markets, Bruny Island and Freycinet in 4 full days If so, should we choose Bruny or Freycinet?

Kettering ( Bruny Island ferry terminal ) is about 30 mins or so from Hobart...plus 15mins or so ferry ride.

Coles Bay ( Freycinet ) is about 2.5 hours from Hobart.

Just for your info and planing.

Thank you! I think we’ll have to skip Freycinet this time. Is Bruny ok for a day trip or much better to stay the night?

With your time frame l would just consider a quick scoot around Bruny and return to Hobart the same day.

Many people do day trips there.

If you arrive Thursday and stay in Hobart

Friday leave early do a day trip to Bruny Island. check out Bruny Island Cheese Factory ,The Neck ,lighthouse etc and return to Hobart

Sat Salamanca markets and possible ferry to MONA in the afternoon .Wharf is close to the markets.

Sun relax in Hobart or visit Richmond. If still feeling active day trip to Port Arthur.
