North Bruny – Bruny Island is made up of two sections, North Bruny and South Bruny. North Bruny is less developed and wilder than its southern neighbour.
The Neck – The two halves of Bruny Island are connected by a narrow isthmus called The Neck. With sandy beach on both sides and forested hills at either end, The Neck is a picturesque destination for an afternoon stroll or a day by the water. Climb up to one of the viewpoints at the end of The Neck to enjoy one of Bruny Island’s most iconic views.
South Bruny National Park – Located on the southern part of the island, the South Bruny National Park takes in some of the area’s most beautiful scenery. Home to an incredibly diverse selection of flora and fauna, South Bruny National Park is an excellent place for bird watching and animal spotting.
Alonnah – The main town on the island, Alonnah is made up of a small collection of houses, shops amenities. Visit the town’s museum, located in the courthouse, to learn about the island’s history or take a walk along the Alonnah Day Track which begins at the town’s jetty.

Built in 1838, the Cape Bruny Lighthouse is the second oldest and longest continually staffed lighthouse in Australia. The other main sight to see on the island is The Neck. When viewed from a certain perspective, an optical illusion makes the water on one side appear higher than the water on the other. To see Bruny Island’s iconic animal life and the spectacular rock formations found along its perimeter, take a cruise along the coast and see this unique outcrop from the water.
