The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus a bunk room.

A wood-burning heater cut wood provided with backup heat pump provides warmth on arrival. The heat pump is also an air-conditioner.

Your drive in is through native bush so keep your eye out for the wildlife, many of which make their presence felt in the dusk silence.

Bruny Island extends 55 km from Dennes Point in the north to Cape Bruny Lighthouse in the south with a modest resident human population of around 780. Access is via a vehicular ferry from Kettering, a half hour drive south from Hobart.

The island is rich with specialty produce and craft cottage industries; however, you need to bring your own food for your stay. Tea, coffee, and basic cooking condiments are provided to assist you on arrival.

We are a 15-20 minute drive from the ferry disembarkation at Roberts Point.

Within a 15 minute drive from Echidna on Bruny you can enjoy fresh local oysters, artisan French-style cheeses, locally smoked meats, inviting beaches for walking and swimming, a cafe with an outstanding view, an art gallery showcasing local artists, Tasmanian whiskies.

A number of moderate-difficulty bush and coastal walks are within a short drive. The historic Bruny Island Quarantine Station is a 20-minute walk away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Island Luxury Property was all as advertised, fantastic location and super quiet. Jackie our host was very attentive and really easy to deal with. Property is near to key island attractions. We can highly recommend this property for a large family self catering holiday. We would love to return some day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet luxury Echidna on Bruny was everything it promised to be. Beautiful house with carefully thought out appointments. So quiet tucked away in the bushland. House was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a fabulous self catering stay. Toasty wood fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bush retreat bliss We have had the pleasure of staying at Echidna twice. This lovely house has everything you need and is very comfortable and accommodating to families with children. Lovely safe bush surroundings and plenty of space. Large entertaining deck and rooms generously sized and with a lay out that allows flexibility if visiting with two families. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and a wealth of knowledge on things to do and see around the Island. Can't wait for our next stay! We will definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Private haven We stayed 3 nights at Echidna on Bruny and are still congratulating ourselves on our choice. The tranquil bush location gives you privacy but the accomodation is stylish and versatile. The facilities are extensive and it would be the ideal location for a multi generational family gathering. Hostess Jackie is welcoming and provides plenty of useful information ahead of your stay so you know what to bring and where to go. There are also maps and pamphlets onsite for further guidance. If you looking for an escape to relax in this is a highly recommended spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fantasic Bruny Bush Retreat This was a fantastic house!! We loved the house itself which was well equipped, well proportioned and very comfortable. The experience of wildlife on the deck EVERY night of our stay was the icing on the cake. Very private and secluded. We would have no reservation in recommending Echidna to anyone - if we return to Bruny we would definitely stay again.
