If you have ever wanted to go inside a lighthouse then this is your opportunity! This lighthouse is the southern most lighthouse in Australia. The views are sensational, the wild Tasman Sea, South East Cape and Whale Head. Imagine the number of people whose lives were saved due to this lighthouse.
No 1 Island attraction. Dramatic and wild photographic opportunities all day long. Our lighthouse tours are operating in the South Bruny National Park in Southern Tasmania - The iconic landmark, Cape Bruny Lighthouse is the only Southern Tasmanian lighthouse open for inspection. The historic 1836 lighthouse towers 374-feet (114-meters) over dramatic cliff tops and coves that form the rugged Tasmanian coastline of Cape Bruny. This is the southernmost lighthouse tour in Australia.
Climb the original wrought iron spiral staircase to the tower balcony and take in the sweeping southern views to the wild Tasman Sea, South East Cape, Whale Head and the small islands dotting the coastline. Experience the vastness and wonderful photo opportunities at every point of the compass - with albatross, gannets and many other pelagic seabirds gliding over the relentless ocean swells. Observe migrating whales, short-tailed shearwaters and Sea Eagles swooping close to the tower.
The superbly engineered lighthouse prisms remain in working order and are unique to see close up. Learn about this early iconic navigational landmark, how it was built by convicts, and how life was for a lighthouse keeper in this far south corner of our world.
Tour founder Craig, grew up on many lighthouse stations around Tasmania, including the Cape Bruny Light Station during the 1970s. Knowing many of the last light keepers in Australia, Craig’s family experiences and stories will enhance your lighthouse tour discovery.
The drive into the South Bruny National park departing from Kettering and crossing the D'Entrecasteaux Channel to the island by ferry is an experience on its own. Enter the lighthouse with your expert tour guide and climb the Spiral Stairs to the Prism room. The photo opportunities from the balcony are plentiful, making for some of the most dramatic photographic scenes in Tasmania.
