Bruny Island Neck

Natural Attractions

Bruny Island Neck is an isthmus of land connecting north and south Bruny Island in southern Tasmania and offers stunning 360 degree views. Just 40 kilometres from Hobart, Bruny is Tasmania’s fourth largest island.
The Neck is an important habitat for Bruny Island’s native wildlife. Boardwalks and viewing platforms let you observe short-tailed shearwaters and little penguins (also known as fairy penguins).
You’ll see these remarkable birds returning to their burrows in the sand dunes at dusk – little penguins making their way up the beach in tight groups and the shearwaters gliding in from the sea. The best viewing period is during the warmer months of September to February.
There’s also a campground just 20 metres from the beach with car parking, picnic facilities and toilets.
Access to the island is by passenger-vehicle ferry from Kettering.
Note: access to the lookout is currently restricted due to improvement works.
