Overview

Photos and Description of this South Bruny holiday farmhouse

Follow a white wallaby into a Bruny Island Wonderland. Birdlife and wallabies abound.

Honeycomb Cottage is a hexagonal chalet situated in the homestead grounds of the historic 'Mavista' farm at Adventure Bay. The cottage includes a queen-sized bed, a kitchen with an electric stove, microwave and fridge, crockery and cutlery and tea/coffee-making facilities. The open-plan area also has a dining area, couch and wood-heater.

There is an ensuite bathroom/laundry, with a bath, shower over bath, washing maching and clothes dryer.

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this 200 acre farm, with views to Cape Queen Elizabeth and the Hounds Tooth, and across the Bay to the Tasman Peninsula.

The farm abounds with birdlife and at dusk the studio will be surrounded by Bennetts wallabies. You may be treated to the sight of a rare white wallaby or a visiting wedge- tailed eagle.

We do not provide breakfast. There is a general store and cafes nearby, and around the island.

We are about four kilometres from adventure cruise operations which can take you out into the Southern Ocean looking for seals, whales, dolphins, albatross and other sea birds.

Vist the historic Bligh Museum on Adventure Bay Road and learn about the early European visitors to the Bay, and learn about their contacts with the local Aboriginal people. Learn too, about the history of early whaling and sawmilling in the area.

Take a gourmet tour of the island and visit the local cheese factory and oyster farm, and the upmarket Alonnah hotel, and visit the many art galleries on this island.

Bring your pushbike if you want some exercise. Touring motorbikes are also welcome.

Walk in the stunningly-beautiful South Bruny National Park and visit the spectacular Cape Bruny lighthouse.

Bring your own kayaks and kayak down to the Bay from our landing in Captain Cook Creek. Bring your snorkelling or diving gear and explore the underwater delights of the Bay. Look out for weedy sea dragons at East Cove.
