This lookout is closed at the moment as they are building a new stairway & parking area. We have arrived on Bruny Island for a 10 nights stay from 20/9/18 and wont be able to enjoy it, however they are well underway. It looks like...More

I have wanted to visit Bruny Island for a very long time, but nothing prepared me for the views from the top of the stairs at The Neck. Bruny Island is, in fact, two islands, North Bruny and South Bruny separated by a narrow isthmus....More

Unfortunately the boardwalk was undergoing maintenance so we couldn't get to the top. I assume that the view would be great. next time

Having spent 5 years studying in Tasmania, I dare say Bruny Island is my favourite place on Earth. I have visited Bruny island countless times for fishing, weekend getaways and day trips. The island, albeit small, has alot to offer! That being said, a trip...More

The carpark at the Neck is being upgraded so we couldn't pull over and have a look; but the views (both sides) from the car were fantastic.

I cannot recommend this enough! watching the sun rise at The Neck on Bruny Island was breath taking a beautiful! My only wish was that we also saw the sunset, but alas another trip to Bruny Island must be on the cards

We stopped by to climb the stairs to warm us up before the Bruny Island Cruise. Definitely got the heart pumping nicely. We visited 4 years ago. This time there were new (drop) toilets at the start. Great views. Make sure you visit after dusk...More

If you are on Bruny island, you cant drive away without a picture posing on this neck which would be like "standing between two converging seas". Cloudy weather, mountains behind, variegation of beach and the greens gives that natural kiss to your picture. Its a...More

Very well managed attraction in a fragile environmental area. This attraction has been well designed and constructed. The car park and toilet facilities are quite new and the path and stairs (over 200) are well made for a comfortable walk up to the look out....More

The views from the top are well worth the effort. It is disappointing to learn this walk will close over winter for replacement - sure it will be worth it but a pity this one couldn't remain open whilst the new one is built. Save...More

Sorry unsure of the answer to your question. I suspect it is seasonal and it certainly does depend on the time of day.
