The waterway of the d’Entrecasteaux Channel, together with Bruny Island is
named after the French navigator Bruni D’Entrecasteaux. The channel separating
Bruny Island from the Tasmanian mainland, stretches from the estuaries of the
Derwent River in the north to the Huon River in the south.
The gateway to Bruny
Island and the southern region of Tasmania, the region offers sheltered harbours
full of fishing vessels and leisure boats, waterside hamlets, gentle countryside
and wild coastlines, farmland and vineyards, recreational fishing, lighthouses,
beautiful flora and delightful fauna, and of course the history of the early
pioneers and explorers.
