Steep climb up lots of step but a great view when you get to the top. Sweeping views of the whole island. Only a small place up the top for photos so it can get crowded.

A must do on bruny. Nice and easy car park although at times I would suggest a bit small. New toilet facilities nearing completion. Easy walk up and a great vantage point for awesome views.

Simple but very effective. Great views and photo opportunities of “the Neck”. Quite a few stairs to climb to the lookout but easy gradient and nice, wide timber stairs. Well worth a look.

The lookout has a few steps, yes, but it is worth everyone up to the top. The views are amazing! Makes for beautiful photos. The beach is spectacular. It is also worth taking a walk along the shoreline.

Well, this is one of the places you have to visit if you are going to Bruny Island. No need for a guide, once is quite easy to get there and to check the place. A wonderful sightseeing to the sea.

We went at low tide and even then the views were breathtaking. It does have 200+ steps, however it is well worth the climb for the 360 degree panoramic views. Perfect opportunity for scenic photos.

It is a hefty climb to the top but worth it for the best view. Gets very busy. There are two stages with platforms, but the highest is the best vantage point for views and photographs.

Stopped here in December, very windy and cold so be warned re your choice of clothing. Great walk to the top platform and view, great for photos.

It was so easy to drive by the small parking lot to where the stairs are located. One can see the neck as you drive on it, however, the view from the stairs is outstanding. Hopefully, they will have some type of viewing... More
