“Stunning views and a wonderful day overall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

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.

“Beautiful Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The trip to the lighthouse in South Bruny NP was the highlight of our trip to Bruny Island - dare I say, the ONLY highlight :P. We found the sights & people of Bruny overwhelmingly underwhelming. Over-priced and unfriendly, however - the view to the great Southern Ocean, and to the north from the lighthouse were phenomenal. (The abundance of rabbits everywhere in Tasmania was disturbing. Actually heard one Taswegian refer to them as "native rabbits" - huh? lol!)

Long, sweeping, white sandy, deserted beaches, spectacular mountain views, wild natural landscapes, sealife, friendly locals, great food, peaceful surroundings - what else could you want?

“beautiful”

so beautiful - a must see!
The boat trip around the coast line allowed another perspective, and gets close to the seals :)

“Breathtaking scenery and wildlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Luwanna pies are award winning home made pies sold in the general store. Stop off at the Love Shuck on the way for the freshest and juiciest oysters in Tassie
