Located within South Bruny National Park, this delightful, adventurous circuit walk climbs up to Fluted Cape, with its beautiful cliff-top views, then steeply descends on the return to Adventure Bay.

The remarkable Jurassic dolerite cliffs of the Fluted Cape soar over 270 metres. The Fluted Cape Walk is a delightful, adventurous circuit walk rewarding you with spectacular coastal views as you climb to the top of one of the highest sea cliffs in Australia.  Your walk will take you through dry sclerophyll forest, past tall blue gums, white peppermint and sheoaks.  Be on the lookout for endemic birdlife.  Don’t forget to look out for the remains of whaling days at Grass Point.

Bushwalking experience is recommended as it is a challenging route with some steep areas and unprotected track edges.

For those after terrific views but something a little less challenging, there is a shorter, easier option doing part of the Fluted Cape Walk from Adventure Bay just to Grass Point and return.

The 4km, Grade 2 walk to Grass Point is 1.5 hours return and is suitable for most ages. The track has a hardened or compacted surface that may have a gentle hill section or sections and occasional steps. There are occasional boulder-strewn sections before you reach some remains of the bay whaling days.

Park entry fees apply.
