Popular with travellers. lovely protected beach remarkably warm as its in a shallow bay. Great easy walks to the cape (17km return, day trip or a shorter version about 5k 2.5 hours). Campsite has good... More

Had a quick walk around the park but didn't walk uo to the National Park. It's just gorgeous everywhere you go on Bruny Island. It's worth a visit if you have time. My boyfriend and I were pressed for time, and didn't have enough time to trek up to the light house. I can only imagine the view from the... More

During a week of fairly indulgent Bruny Island cherries, oysters and cheeses the climb to the top of fluted Cape was a challenge but extremely rewarding. The walk itself begins at the end of the Adventure Bay Road at Cookville and passes some historic whaling remains before the beginning of a fairly significant climb. Stunning scenery that stretches all the... More

It is a long drive over gravel road to access the Lighthouse and park and it can be quite windy there so dress warm. Great place to enjoy this natural area.

We thought the jetty beach campground was nicer than The Neck, also as less people during peak season. The 1.5hr circuit walk takes you to some secluded beaches, gravel access road is bumpy so take care, lighthouse has amazing views and worth the drive. A quieter part of Bruny, not that anywhere is that busy! Also, stop at the pub/hotel... More

This place is amazing and is a must see. there is so much to do see and eat on this great little island. I would recommend avoiding the Chocolate / fudge factory. the staff here are extremely rude and ruined what was other wise a perfect 2 days in this island.

There are two of the sixty walks here of Tasmania but there is also another one which you can do. We saw a sea eagle and a snake at close range plus many birds. Although Bruny Island receives many visitors they don't go to the national park, so it's very peaceful and relaxing if not overgrown in places. Park staff... More

How can one effectively review an area as extensive and diversified as this is? Has to be experienced.

Need to find this place, a bit off the beaten track. But really special. Neat drive and lighthouse. Haven't been in a few years, but I imagine it's still the same!

Must see on Bruny Island. Plenty of great views and wild weather to enjoy. Nice short walk to the lighthouse with an interesting museum to inspect on the way. Well worth the drive on unsealed roads. Take care on the roads.
