We stopped because of a sign about penguins, but it wasn't penguin season, so we decided to have a look at the view from the top of the steps. We're very glad we did because the views are absolutely amazing.

Night time penguin observing is fun but def climb the stairs to Truganinni's memorial......the view from the top is well worth the effort.

The walk up the staircase at the Neck reward you with a spectacular view. There is a memorial to Truganini there.

We didn't get to see any penguins however it probably would've helped if we'd visited at dusk. Good walk to the lookout. The monument to Truganini is touching the story is devastating! In order to learn of Australia's real history read the monument!!

Initially I thought this was going to be just another view and was tempted to not climb the steps. But off we went, and it is a bit of a climb but surprisingly the steps and risers are the perfect space apart for a comfortable climb. Yes, it does make a difference.
The view when you reach the top is absolutely amazing. You can see 360 degrees for miles.
Nice seats up there too for those who want a bit of a rest.
I will definately recommend Bruny Island and The Neck to anyone I know traveling to Tasmania.
The ferry ride across is very smooth and well organized too.
