Bruny Island - Grass Point Track

Home of the white wallaby, if you are lucky enough to see one. This track passes the remains of a whaling station out to the 'whaler's lookout' and Penguin Island. This area is of great historic significance, with Abel Tasman landing here in 1642 and Captain James Cook some 135 years later in 1777.

Situated in the South Bruny National Park, take in the sweeping southern views to the wild Tasman Sea, South East Cape, Whale Head and the small islands dotting the coastline. Experience the vastness and wonderful photo opportunities at every point of the compass, with albatross, gannets and many other pelagic seabirds gliding over the relentless ocean swells. Observe migrating whales, as well as short tailed shearwaters and Wedge Tailed Eagles swooping close to the tower.

Cathedral Rock

Moderate hike. Starting on private property gate, through magnificent myrtle forest alongside a creek, to a steep zigzagging fire trail to a fun top scramble to the summit. Fantastic views and a fairly sheltered hike until you hit the top. Return the same way or alternatively keep walking along the ridge to the Montague Thumb and come back in a long loop across the valley.

Collins Bonnet

The "Sleeping Beauty". Start at Collinsvale and finish at Big Bend (Mt. Wellington). This needs a drop-off and pick up.
A truly rewarding half day hike.
Overall a moderate walk but given the wet and slippery mud at the beginning and the nasty weather that can occur without warning it can be considered a difficult hike.
