We stopped along the road as we drove south from the ferry and enjoyed the various views. Stunning beach along the way merited parking and walking along the beach for a while. We stopped at the post office to use the public toilets and went into the pharmacy to see the Indigenous Art collection which was lovely. Then went on a few minutes down the road for a fabulous lunch at the Hotel Bruny Bistro. (See our review - especially recommended are Beer Battered Fried Oysters and Chicken Parma). We stopped at the entrance to the park to pay the fee and sat on the picnic table to admire the view and sound of the ocean below. Then drove on to the lighthouse - stopping along the way to take photos from a distance of the stunning cliffs and beach with the lighthouse in the background. Then the lighthouse setting itself was wonderful. A bit of a steep walk up to the lighthouse but worth it. Lovely view in all directions. The roads are sometimes gravel and not paved. But not too bumpy. To us this day trip from Hobart to the lighthouse was the highlight of our trip to Tassie. It was peaceful, beautiful - and a lovely experience of the beauty of nature.
