Bruny Island lies just off the south-east coast of Tasmania. D'Entrecasteaux Channel separates the island from mainland Tasmania. From Hobart, the island can be reached by travelling south on the Southern Outlet (A6) to Kingston, and then continuing to Kettering on the B68, some 40 km (and about 40 minutes) south of Hobart.

A vehicular ferry departs from Kettering. Departures are at regular intervals throughout the day, and the trip takes about 15 minutes. The ferry takes you to Roberts Point, on north Bruny Island. From Roberts Point you travel by road (sealed & unsealed) to the southern part of the island.
