Like all National Park locations, this walk is well signed and cared for. However, a short stretch between two sandy beaches half way round was badly overgown with bracken. Generally, there are no steep gradients. A clockwise route is recommended. The first half can be a little monotonous with little variation in scenery but the second half is much better,... More

This walk is along a spectacular coastline with dolerite columns. However the track is badly maintained by Tasmanian National Parks with few signposts, large fallen trees over the steep path requiring many detours all the while within a metre of the cliff edge. It felt like an accident waiting to happen. For safety's sake definitively no children, no rain, need... More

The south coast of Bruny is really something rugged and primal. The cliffs in the distance and the view from the lighthouse are some of the best you will get in the area.

We stopped here as part of a tour and saw the Tasman Arch, the Hells Kitchen, and the beaches at Adventure Bay. The waves were impressive and provided beautiful photos. This area is a treasure and needs to be preserved. Great place to visit.

There are a lot of walks available throughout the park but if you want a short 1 1/2 hour easy walk then the one from Jetty Beach is good.

I wish they would stop the beach driving on Cloudy Bay beach. Too many hoons use it as a donut track. No respect! All the walks on Bruny are great. Bird life in this area is outstanding.

Imagine seeing a white wallaby in the wild and taking photos whilst it stood and stared at you. It can happen when you visit this amazing natural wonder.

Cloudy Bay in South Bruny National Park is one of the beautiful attractions on this island. A huge desolate uninhabited and unspoilt beach which can be wild and windy at time. This only adds to the attraction of the area. Surfers go around the corner to middle beach... a great surfing beach and campers can drive (depending on the car... More
