The far south of Tasmania is a magical place where the mountains and forests meet the Great Southern Ocean. The fertile lands and rich natural diversity of this remote region is home to some of the islands most wild and rugged landscapes - as well as a burgeoning gourmet food and wine scene that must be tasted to be believed. This active exploration of Bruny Island and the south will wheel you to some of the region's most delicious food experiences, including a 'drive through' oyster bar, whiskey tasting, sheep's milk cheese sampling, a boutique chocolate factory as well as visits to wine and cider producers. Burning off the calories will be a piece of cake as you explore Bruny Island's best vantage points by bike and foot for spectacular views back over the island and southern Tasmania before boarding a wildlife cruise to spot dolphins, seals and a plethora of seabirds. Back on the mainland the southern Tasmania highlights continue with visits to the Tahune Airwalk and Hastings Cave, the largest dolomite cave in the southern hemisphere. As we head even further south we'll stop for a walk in the Hartz Mountains National Park before heading for the most southern point in Australia, Cockle Creek, from where we can set out to South Cape Bay, the final section of the famous South Coast Track.
