Bruny Island

This focus of this route is coastal riding and big views! It is an extension of the Bruny Island (North) route, but in the opposite direction. It includes a leg to Bruny Island (south) and Adventure Bay.

The route is significantly more road than gravel, but you will still want gravel tires for the gravel sector on South Bruny Island. We recommend avoiding this route during “silly season” and busy weekends. There is food available at Adventure Bay. By Captain “O”.
