I stayed here recently and wished I could have stayed for another week or more. The location is brilliant. The house is located on the South side of the island, but the drive there from the Kettering ferry is gorgeous. The house is set on a clearing surrounded by bush. You can hear the frogs in a nearby lagoon. The... more

So beautiful, so tranquil, so secluded (yet, not isolated), located within a very special tract of well cared for "Land for Wildlife"; hence, it is a privilege to be a guest. The house and land are yours to enjoy: full cooking and storage facilities, comfy beds, forest and water views, birdlife, plants and animals, 10 minute walk to your "own"... more

How to get there
Interstate guests have the option of catching the Spirit of Tasmania in Melbourne and sailing to Devonport and driving south to Hobart and Kettering to catch the Bruny Island Ferry to Bruny Island.

International guests fly into Hobart Airport via Sydney or Melbourne, hire a car then drive to Bruny Island.

Or...as some guests have done, bring your helicopter or we'll hire one on your behalf to land on our property. Normally in this case someone in the party hires a car to drive down for use during the visit.

Or...if you simply want to stay put on the property, take a flight with one of the local jumper airlines who will fly you to the Bruny Island airstrip and we will provide complimentary transport the Labillardiere Estate.
