Bruny Shore - an extraordinary holiday house providing luxury accommodation on Bruny Island. The accommodation overlooks Bull Bay on North Bruny Island in Tasmania, Australia. Enjoy the stunning views and ever changing moods across Storm Bay to the Iron Pot lighthouse, Betsy Island, the Tasman Peninsula to Cape Raoul and the waters of the Southern Ocean.

The Bruny Shore dwelling has been designed and built with the aim of minimising environmental impact. It has achieved a 5+ star energy rating with optimal insulation in all cavities and low e glass, argon filled double glazing in all windows and external doors.

Bruny Shore enjoys a secluded location perched 70 meters above Timber Beach at Bull Bay. The 18.5 hectare (45 acre) property has been covenanted to protect the habitat of two of Tasmania’s most endangered birds: the 40 spotted pardalote and swift parrot.

Watch the boats and eagles float by from the comfort of the couch or as you enjoy a meal around the long Myrtle and Huon Pine dining table. Soak up the afternoon sun with a book, ensconced in the window seat or recline outside in the Airondack chairs. All the while, the absorbing views are never more than a glance away.

Bruny Shore provides a truly unique holiday experience. Just over an hour from Hobart including the relaxing 15 minute ferry crossing from Kettering to Bruny Island.

Recycled Tasmanian timbers, including eucalyptus, myrtle, celery top and huon pine, have been used extensively in construction of flooring, furniture, beds, shelves and benches. Timber was also salvaged from blackwoods, silver and black wattle trees that were felled in suburban gardens for safety reasons. All the external doors and many of the windows were constructed from Forest Stewardship Council certified western red cedar. External cladding and decking are made from macrocarpa, an exotic conifer, common as a windrow tree on farm paddocks. The timber has excellent outdoor durability. It is salvaged from farms when the trees fall over or start to break up.

The area is a bird watcher’s delight with a rich and varied bird population including wedge tailed eagles and sea eagles. Wallabies, quolls, echidnas and other native animals are common.
