South Bruny National Park

Wild seascapes with towering cliffs, wonderful coastal walks, birdlife and wildflowers, tall forests and an historic lighthouse are all features of South Bruny National Park.
Head south, crossing the narrow Neck (the isthmus connecting North and South Bruny Island) to reach the park boundary near Adventure Bay or south of Lunawanna.
South Bruny is a great place to walk with everything from an easy stroll to a hard climb. Walks include the coastal track from Adventure Bay to Penguin Island and Fluted Cape, beach walks on Cloudy Bay, or the full-day circuit of the Labillardiere Peninsula.
South Bruny also contains evidence of Aboriginal and early settler life with many important Aboriginal sites in the form of middens, quarries, artefact scatters and stone arrangements on the coastline.
At the southern point of South Bruny Island is the Cape Bruny lighthouse, built between 1836 and 1838 with convict labour. The lighthouse is the second-oldest and longest continually staffed lighthouse in Australia.
Access to Bruny Island is via a 20-minute crossing on a vehicular ferry from Kettering, a 35-minute drive south of Hobart. The Bruny Island Ferry Service runs seven days a week.
