Food & Supplies


Although there are a number of options for eating out on Bruny Island, your beautifully appointed pod features quality Smeg appliances, microwave, refrigerator plus a Delonghi gas cooktop and outdoor BBQ’s. Well appointed decks to use and enjoy. Meaning you never need to venture away from Quarantine Bay.

Here at Free Spirit you’ll find peace and tranquility, however this also means supplies on the Island are limited and we recommend stocking up prior to boarding the Sealink Bruny Island Ferry.
