Adventure Bay is a small township and a bay on the eastern side of South Bruny Island, Tasmania. The first European to sight the bay was Abel Tasman in the Heemskerck in 1642. The bay proved to be an ideal anchorage and source of fresh water for explorers in the late 18th C., notably the Captains Tobias Furneaux in his ship HMS Adventure, James Cook in HMS Resolution, William Bligh in HMS Bounty, Bruni d’Entrecasteaux aboard Recherché, and Matthew Flinders in the sloop Norfolk. North of Adventure Bay is the larger Storm Bay that is the entrance to Tasmania’s capital Hobart, 40 or so kilometres from Adventure Bay.

During the 19th C the bay was the site of a whaling station, and timber mills, for the island has extensive stands of gum trees. Today there’s a small settlement around the shores and it is a tourist destination for visitors arriving by ferry from the mainland, air (there’s a local airport), and sea by tender. There are only 150 or so permanent residents. The island offers a number of walks, tourist attractions, and swimming. Four nature walks in the South Bruny National Park range from 20 minutes to 2½ hours.

The berry farm has peak harvest mid-December through January, and it’s a good place for picnic and BBQ. Other things to look out for are the world globe sculpture, resident white wallabies, and bird life. North and South Bruny Islands are joined by a narrow isthmus 2 kilometres long and a stone’s throw across, with wide beach and surf to the east, and calm water to the west. Visiting vessels will likely show guests around the rugged cliffs south of the bay, the deep sea caves, the narrow gap between cliffs and ‘The Monument’ crag, look out for pods of dolphins and migrating whales.
