An island off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, Bruny is having its moment. Idyllic sand beaches, pristine turquoise seas and pure tranquility are here for the asking. It's no wonder this natural beauty still tops the list of summer weekend getaways for the local Tasmanians.

Getting to Bruny is convenient, with (almost) hourly ferry timings that transported us with our car from Kettering jetty to the island in around 20 minutes.  There are a few notable places of stop-bys in Bruny that we visited including; Get Shucked for its fresh pacific oysters, Cheese Company for its unique array of distinctively-Tasmanian artisan cheeses , Premium Wines for its refreshing unwooded Pinot Noir and delish food pairing in the relaxed atmosphere of a vineyard.

In pursuit to experience the wilderness at its best, we opted for a stay at the 100-acre Hot Tub Hideaway. This amazing cottage is located within a 100-acre private bushland and meadow overlooking Cloudy Bay - isolated enough to capture the tranquility of the lush greenery. Presence of wildlife adds to the charm of this property - we had wallabies hopping around our doorstep!  Come night fall, the sky comes alive with shining stars littered across the horizon.  Pour a glass of wine and kick back in the private hot-tub as you admire the stars, how's that for a relaxing stay!

Off the beaten track stays make travelling so much more fun and exciting
