The Friends of North Bruny (FONB) developed the Heritage Trail at Dennes Point. Starting from the Jetty Café and gallery, the trail takes visitors on a short walk to Kelly’s Point, the northern most tip of Bruny Island, taking in some of the most heritage-rich and fascinating parts of North Bruny. Dennes Point is an area of outstanding heritage significance and is of vital importance to the Tasmanian Aboriginal people. It is also the site of some of the earliest and most significant encounters between Aborigines and Europeans. The trail documents some of the events of European settlement from 1818 onwards. The Dennes Point Heritage Trail is a refreshing walk, with beautiful views, offering a fantastic introduction to the area’s amazing history.
