Most of this National Park is accessed by gravel roads which obviously puts a lot of people and car hire companies off. However, these gravel roads are well maintained and you just need to close your windows to keep the dust out, when trailing or encountering another vehicle. The Cape Bruny Lighthouse walk offers great views of rugged ocean and... More

Wonderful walks with scenic views. Park entry fees are high. However, the park is well maintained and the walking paths were easy to follow.

We did the 2.5 hour walk (Fluted Cape and Grass Point) - access via the beach at Advrnture Bay - a good morning's effort with some spectacular views. One more reason to visit the gorgeous East Coast of Bruny island.

Camping in the warmer months at the Cloudy Corner Camp is a must. The camp is located at the southern end of the Cloudy Bay Beach in a fairly protected area with a magnificent view. The drive along the beach is a great feeling and worth doing even if not camping. Toilets are provided. Camping costs $5/person/night. Take walks along... More

Unfortunately it rained pretty heavily the day I visited Bruny. It's Tasmania so that goes with the territory but it does put a literal dampner on things. I did some walks and the views weren't all the great. The one up to the highest point of Bruny was particularly disappointing. It was just to some old weather station. You couldn't... More

I did the 'adventure' tour on the speed boat and indeed it was an adventure with 2-4m seas, high wind and overcast weather. It was a rather 'hairy' trip which would be absolutely fantastic on a good day but be prepared if the weather is challenging as the trip wil be uncomfortable- bumpy & cold & wet, especially if you...

You Love Exploring Islands, Then Bruny is Well Worth the Vsit!. Stop in at the Barns Bay Villa, & Quaint little Guesthouse on the way around to Dennes Point, up in the Northern Point. Then tour Down the South to Alonnah where you can fond the Bruny Hotel, Paddelboat's and Kayak's for Hire. Just a bit further to find the... More
