There’s beauty in imperfection, in aging gracefully with the changing of the tides. This simple, earthy and intimate Bruny Island cabin is built from reclaimed timbers, with its sagging roof sympathetically restored to keep its original charm. Wake to the smell of fresh wood-fired sourdough, baked in the shed next to you and delivered by owners John and Jenene. The day stretches ahead of you; one kilometre of private water frontage beckoning with the opportunity to snorkel, swim, kayak or fish. Or just sit and watch the crabs scurry along the foreshore, the sea eagles whirling overhead. Check the map in the cottage and head out for a tramp across the 37-acre property and return for gin and tonics at sundown.
Things we love
“There are heaps of gorgeous walks on Bruny so we recommend 2-5 night stays but do allow single nights because most people think Bruny is small until they get here!”
~ Jenene Oates, The Shack at Sheepwash Bay
