We did two terrific walks in this park, strenuous and some steep climbs but well worth it to get the views from the tops of towering cliffs. The Fluted Cape walk showed us some rugged rock formations including up close and personal with the flutes while the East Cloudy Head included some beach walking and then through beautiful coastal heath...

Stunning scenery. Did a bus tour, but it would be great to hire a car and stay overnight. The tour was very enjoyable and included tastings.The tastings I had at the cheese factory and smallgoods shop wouldn;t have totalled a teaspoon full, Don't expect much from tastings, with the exclusion of the chocolate shop on the mainland on the way...

South Bruny Island was a real surprise. Unspoilt landscapes with bird rookeries and great fishing locations. A great place to unwind.

Adventured with Bruny Island Safaris for a fully guided day tour. Such a great package tour.. chocolate at Nutpatch Nougat and Confectionery at Kettering - good way to start a day, and it just got better - cheese tasting, oyster tasting, smokehouse tasting - pub lunch overlooking the water - yes a bit of a foodie tour - and then...

Took a day trip to Bruny Island, complete with a boat cruise around the coast. Beautiful location, so wild and natural. We were blessed with a terrific day weather wise, but it could be very rough if the weather turned. Lovely foods on the island.

Car ferry across & a pleasant drive across both islands. Highlight was the view from the isthmus and the walk up the 227 steps to the lookout. Nice country drive, but because it was winter with driving winds we didn't stay too long.

The walks in the National Park are very picturesque; bush, cliff and coastal views abound. We did the Cape Bruny, Cape Queen Elizabeth and Flute Cape walks varying between about 1.5 hours and up to 4 hours. They were all very rewarding and being that time of the year, we had them to ourselves!

What a lovely place to visit. Took the car over on the ferry, a short 20 min ride, and drove along the coastline of this lovely island. It was unique with low grassy terrain to tall rainforest trees. Cafes and restaurants scattered through the island to stop for a break. Glad we made the effort to explore this little gem.

If you get a chance while in Tasmania don't skip Bruny Island. A 20 minute, $30 return ferry ride to a very rural, very hilly, tremendously beautiful place. Wonderful parks, tidy campgrounds and an abundance of wildlife. Go!

A short ferry ride from Kettering brings you to this amazing island. You could be a million miles away from city life here. The scenery is beautiful and it is well worth the climb to the lookout. Great local produce provides for tasty meals and treats. If you can't spare the time to stay on the island, then just go... More
