Te Kuiti is on South Bruny Island and getting there is a fabulous experience in itself. Leaving historic Hobart, it’s a 40-minute drive south through coastal towns and rural landscape to the car ferry at Kettering. It is worth stopping on the way for supplies (see below). The ferries operate every 30 minutes to an hour depending on the time of the year (Check Ferry Timetable), with the last ferry leaving about 7pm.
The crossing is a beautiful introduction to the Channel and takes 15 minutes. Driving a further 35 minutes will take you through North Bruny Island and across the spectacular Neck to South Bruny and Alonnah. Along the way you will pass farmland and countryside, the House of Whisky, Get Shucked (oysters), the Cheese Co., as well as stunning water views and coastline.
