Visit the Bruny Island Lighthouse

Rate this Adventure Australia Bruny Island Lighthouse

Added by Madison Sankovitz

Cape Bruny, at the south end of Bruny Island, is an amazingly scenic area where you can photograph cliffs and the Tasman Sea from the ground or from Bruny Island Lighthouse.

Cape Bruny, at the south end of Bruny Island, is accessible by car. To enter the island you must take a ferry from Kettering (view website for times and prices: brunyislandferry.com.au). Once you park near the lighthouse, walk up the short path to the top of the hill and the lighthouse. From here you can see all of stunning Cape Bruny and the Tasman Sea. You can go inside and to the top of the lighthouse on tours with Bruny Island Safaris (brunyislandsafaris.com) or Bruny Island Traveller (brunyislandtraveller.com.au) to photograph the cape from the high upper deck. Either way, from the ground or the lighthouse deck, you will get a spectacular view of the cape and the ocean.

It can get very windy on the cape, so be prepared for chilly conditions!

Hike the Yangie Bay Trail in Coffin Bay National Park

This hike is short, but there are tons of opportunities to take in beautiful views of the bay and we saw tons of kangaroos! It was close to dusk, so this is a time when they're typically quite active.

This is one of the lesser known areas that has the conditions to allow thrombolites to thrive - a biofilm on the rocks that shows you what life looked like at the dawn of time billions of years ago.

Relax at Redgate Beach

Australia / Redgate Beach Carpark

The best times to go are either during a big swell so you can admire the waves crashing against the rocks, a bright sunny day so you can admire the red rocks and beautiful turquoise water, or at suns.
