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.

Cape Bruny Lighthouse

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.
