Day trip to the south end of South Bruny Island

Sunday, Mar 16, 2014 at 14:00


The plan for today was to sleep in and have a bit of a rest day with minimum travel. We headed off into the forest behind "Adventure Bay" across to "Cloudy Bay". The roads were gravel but in good condition. There are a number of places to visit in the forest but some require fairly hard walks and we decided to bypass those. We came a cross a great lookout on the western side of the forest just before coming out onto farmland. This lookout gave a great view out across Cloudy Bay Lagoon, Cloudy bay and the Lighthouse at Cape Bruny.

We then headed down to Cloudy Bay where we found a really nice camping area called The Pines just before the beach.

The next destination was the Cape Bruny lighthouse. The road passed through farmland and forest, although gravel it was in good condition. We stopped at 2 lookouts on the way, the first called Mabel Bay and the second unnamed, but gave great views of Cape Bruny.

At the lighthouse there are 3 houses, one of which is set up as a museum. The walk to the top of the hill where the lighthouse sits is fairly steep, but worthwhile. The views are in all directions, the only problem I had was standing still enough in the wind to take pictures.
