Tasmania East Coast - South Bruny National Park

South Bruny National Park lies at the southern tip of Bruny Island off the southeast coast of Tasmania. The park encompasses all of the coastline and some of the hinterland between Fluted Cape and the southern part of Great Taylors Bay.

South Bruny National Park was gazetted in 1997 mainly for its wonderful coastal scenery. Much of the coast is comprised of towering cliffs, muttonbird rookeries, gardens of kelp seaweed and long sandy beaches. In some areas the park extends several kilometres back from the coastline, where lush rainforest may be found containing several endemic plant species (plants unique to Tasmania). The popularity of South Bruny National Park as a tourist destination is enhanced by its abundant birdlife, coastal heathland and its prominent place in the history of Tasmania

Location

Bruny Island lies just off the south-east coast of Tasmania. D'Entrecasteaux Channel separates the island from mainland Tasmania. From Hobart, the island can be reached by travelling south on the Southern Outlet (A6) to Kingston, and then continuing to Kettering on the B68, some 40 km (and about 40 minutes) south of Hobart
