Carrington Cottage is a traditional Dennes Point beachside shack looking out over beautiful D'Entrecasteaux Channel and North Bruny's Nebraska Beach.
To get to us, you will have spent a relaxing 15 minutes crossing the Channel on the car ferry, and a further 20 minutes driving north to the very tip of Bruny Island.
Although cleverly renovated to provide all the creature comforts, Carrington Cottage retains its simple beach-shack look and feel, and it is the perfect base for exploring Bruny Island's gourmet and wilderness delights.
is a popular swimming, sailing, diving, fishing and kayaking spot;
boasts fine food at the Jetty Cafe, and local "Art at the Point"
makes the perfect starting point for a self-styled gourmet trail – check out Get Shucked Oysters, and Bruny Island Cheese Co, for starters – and
is a fantastic place to head out for bushwalks or to go whale/dolphin-spotting.
