Bruny Island lies in the Tasman Sea off the southeastern coast of Tasmania, Australia, separated by the D'Entrecasteaux Channel to the west and Storm Bay to the northeast. It is nearly two islands (called North and South) joined by a very narrow isthmus and is known for its varied wildlife including fairy penguins and many reptile species. Deeply indented by Adventure, Cloudy, and Great Taylor bays and generally wooded, the island has a rugged east coast and rises to mountains in the south, one of the highest being Mt. Bruny at 1,659 ft (506 m). The Friars Rocks lie just offshore to the south. It features stunning coastal scenery, good beaches and fine walks in the South Bruny National Park.
Sighted by Abel Tasman in 1642, visited by Furneaux, Cook , Bligh and Cox between 1770 and 1790, it was named after Bruni'D'Encasteaux who explored the area in 1792.
