We have been living in Blue Cottage for the last year while we built a new home on beautiful Bruny Island. Blue Cottage Bruny Island is self contained 2 bedroom cottage in Alonnah South Bruny Island with fabulous views across the D' Entrecasteaux Channel to the Hartz Mountains is back up and open. Sit back and relax watching the sunset over Sunset Bay from the deck maybe enjoying Bruny Island Cheese or Get Shucked Oysters that can be found on the way to Blue Cottage it is a good idea to get supplies before catching the ferry at Kettering.
There is a lovely walk along the foreshore which is great for birdwatching or wild flower spotting this track is a easy walk takes around 1/2 hour, it usually takes a little longer because of the seats along the track which are nice to take in the views.
Alonnah has a great beach good for a little beach combing, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and there is a boat ramp at the marina known as the pontoon.
The pontoon is the spot for dropping a fishing line from, seals have been seen from there along with dolphins all this a 300meter walk from Blue Cottage.
One of the pleasures of staying in Alonnah is to be able to walk along the beach to the corner shop to pickup few supplies or enjoy a excellent meal at Bruny Hotel it is a good idea to book this takes around 10minutes or 2 minutes by car.
A good vantage point from the deck to see Aurora Australis southern lights you need to check daily on the Internet to
see if there is any activity.
A visit to the penguin rookery at sunset is alway a fun part of a visit to Bruny Island along with exploring the light house or enjoying one of the many walks we have maps and walk info from National Parks at Blue Cottage. There is a very good information desk at the Cafe where you catch the ferry to Bruny Island.
