There is something about Bruny Island that captures the imagination of those who visit and no place is this more evident than in South Bruny National Park – a place beloved for its striking landscapes and diverse coastal scenery.
South Bruny National Park’s towering cliffs are a spectacle set against the wild Southern Ocean. Atop one of the southern headlands is Cape Bruny Lighthouse, first lit in 1838 and today offering a fascinating insight into the history of this rugged coastline. Nearby Cloudy Bay is popular with surfers and ideal for long walks on the beach. You may even find yourself watching southern right and humpback whales on their annual migration as you explore the beaches and headlands of South Bruny.
Discovering the park on foot provides you with an opportunity to immerse yourself in the landscape – an experience enhanced by plentiful birdlife, coastal heathland and sweeping vistas.
