What a special drive....be sure to climb the 250+ steps up to view the isthmus and surrounding areas. Lots of black swans. We stopped and picked up a cheese plate for two and had a picnic just outside the entrance to the Lighthouse Park. Terrific vista. Ice cream at the Berry Farm was yummy.

Bruny Island has become one of my favourite parts of Tasmania. The south island is a hidden gem where we were able to get away from the noise and people. There is opportunity to wild camp, we were eating oysters off the rocks and fish is plenty. It's definitely well worth following some of the walks recommended by the map... More

We visited the lighthouse & museum here which was very interesting. Also we walked a section of the Labillardiere Peninsula walk (the shorter version) which had a lovely variety of flora & the section which brought you down to the water & along pretty beaches was just lovely. Really worthwhile. Took a couple of hours & was easy.

I have loved this area since I was a child and return whenever I can. It's a very special part of the world and worth the effort to get there.

Therecare some great walks on Bruny. But, the dirt roads make thm a challenge to get to. We were in an R/V and passed on a couple of areas because of the difficulty getting to them.

If you like food ( oysters - straight out the ocean, chocolate, fruit, wine ) a must. On the Huon trail in Tasmania. Short ferry ride from mainland but reasonable priced. Great beaches too.

As we had a car we did our won tour & whilst we didn't have the local knowledge, we explored all of the places at out won leisure. The drive down to Cape Bruny Lighthouse was great. We had lunch over looking the bay before we walk to the lighthouse
