About the neighbourhood
The Channel and Bruny Island region is chock full of things to do, see, eat and drink.

Around Kettering, we have both the Steam House and Bruny Gateway Cafes, Pashas Indian Restaurant, the Peppermint Bay Restaurant in Woodbridge and of course the famous Nutpatch Chocolatier. For a local fine dining experience, we recommend Howden Villa in Howden, near Margate.

Our Bruny Island favourites include Bruny Island Cheeses, Get Shucked Oysters, Bruny Island Premium Wines, the South Bruny Lighthouse, the House of Whiskey and of course the Bruny Island Cruises run by Pennicott Adventures.

Further South via Cygnet and the Huon Valley, we are spoilt with cider and wine producers,great cafes, coastal drives, forest trails and mountain hikes.
Getting around
Access to your own vehicle is recommended. However, if you are relying on public transport, Metro buses run a limited service between Hobart and Kettering via Kingston. There is a bus stop at the end of our road and at the Ferry Terminal. We can assist with drop off and pick up from these bus stops.

How to get there
Airport: Hobart Airport: 50.0 km
Ferry: Bruny Island Ferry: 4.0 km
If driving from Hobart Airport, you will be driving through Hobart city, taking the Southern Outlet out of Hobart. As you approach Kingston stay in the left hand lane for Kingston if you wish to get some supplies from Coles or Woolworths. Move to the right hand lane if you wish to bypass Kingston and travel on to Kettering. At the large roundabout to the south of Kingston, follow the exit towards Kettering and the Ferry. You will travel through Margate (nb. bottle shop on the right), Snug, Oyster Cove and then into Kettering. After passing the oval to your left, you will see the exit for the Bruny Island Ferry to your left. Travel a further 50 metres beyond this exit and turn right into Oxleys Road (nb. dirt road). After approximately 300 metres, you take a sharp left up Groombridges Road... more
