There is a good short walk at Jetty Beach

There are a lot of walks available throughout the park but if you want a short 1 1/2 hour easy walk then the one from Jetty Beach is good.

I wish they would stop the beach driving on Cloudy Bay beach. Too many hoons use it as a donut track. No respect! All the walks on Bruny are great. Bird life in this area is outstanding.

Imagine seeing a white wallaby in the wild and taking photos whilst it stood and stared at you. It can happen when you visit this amazing natural wonder.

Cloudy Bay in South Bruny National Park is one of the beautiful attractions on this island. A huge desolate uninhabited and unspoilt beach which can be wild and windy at time. This only adds to the attraction of the area. Surfers go around the corner to middle beach... a great surfing beach and campers can drive (depending on the car... More

There wasn't much of a scenery but it's worth a try in the late arvo/dusk to try to spot the white wallabies amongst the usual brown ones. We spotted them near the deserted looking houses.

This is a beautiful spot but it is typical of national parks. If you are like me and like an adventure and to get off road in your 4wd don't bother because you can't get anywhere all the old tracks have a gate on them or are now walking tracks and im not a great fan of lugging diving or... 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
