Visit the Bruny Island Lighthouse

South Bruny, Tasmania


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!
