Fluted Cape - Great Short Walk

Fluted Cape - Great Short Walk
Fluted Cape - Great Short Walk
Fluted Cape is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. The 60 Great Short Walks offer the best of Tasmania's day walking opportunities. 2.5 hours return, 4km, walk clockwise only. A shorter, easier walk to Grass Point is also an option Grade 4. Bruny Island offers a rich history, spectacular scenery, close-up wildlife and a variety of walking opportunities. ​Located within South Bruny National Park, this delightful, adventurous circuit walk also has a shorter, easier option to Grass Point and return. There are occasional boulder-strewn sections before you reach some remains of the bay whaling days at Grass Point. From Grass Point either return to Adventure Bay or continue on the more challenging Fluted Cape walk. A little further past Grass Point is a gulch between the point and Penguin Island. The track climbs up to Fluted Cape, with its beautiful cliff-top views, then steeply descends on the return to Adventure Bay. Please refer to the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania website ( for up-to-date information about this walk, alerts, closures, safe walking guidelines, leave no trace principles and National Park entry fees where applicable.
