Attractions & Activities

Bruny is a great island for touring - drive north to the sheltered beaches of Dennes Point and Killora; head south to Adventure Bay, the Cape Bruny Lighthouse and Cloudy Bay, where there is a great surf break.

It's a perfect island for walking - stroll to Penguin Island from Adventure Bay and climb along the crest of the sea crags on Fluted Cape; take the loop track around the Labillardiere Peninsula and picnic along the way; take a beach walk on one of the island's many stretches of untracked sand.

But please don't try and see all of Bruny in a day or two - you'd be surprised how many people don't realise that Bruny Island is nearly 100 kilometres long! From the tip of Dennes Point in the north to Cape Bruny Lighthouse in the south, the landscapes change dramatically - sheltered sandy beaches and farmlands in the north, tall forests, open bays and wild coastlines in the south.

That's one good reason to stay a few days - you need time to climb to the top of the sand hummock and look out across the Neck; to gaze out at the Southern Ocean from Cape Bruny; to walk on the wide and wild Cloudy Bay Beach; to see Mt Wellington and the Sleeping Beauty across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel from Dennes Point; to observe seabirds in the shallows of Daniels Bay at Lunawanna; and to take one of the world's best eco-cruises from Adventure Bay.

Check out some of the island's highlights below, explore Bruny's Food & Dining experiences and the great range of Walks.
