Went to check out the Neck lookout the other night but found it and boardwalk with access to the penguin rookery was closed until Christmas 2017 as they are upgrading the road and parking. We did however, park at the campground at the southern end...More

Fantastic view that you won't see on the ground d.... Love how the heck parts the water and bridges the north and south Bruny. Be prepared to climb the wooden steps tho.

Well worth a trip just for the view. Easy to park up by the side of the road and climb a few steps so doesn't require a big investment of time but the views are amazing. It's just a shame our trip didn't coincide with...More

Although it took a little longer than I would have liked to get up the steps since it was a little crowded the views from the top were stunning on all sides! Definatly worth the work out!

Each time I am in Bruny I like to challenge my stamina by stepping up the many steps to the top, The view is excellent. But this time I felt the pinch.

A rather long climb up but the view was worth it. The Tasman Sea on the left, and D'Entrecasteaux Channel on the right. Could have stayed up there for hours.

Great views! But if you're unfortunate enough to visit around 15mins after the ferry has landed on Bruny, its often ruined by trying to share the tight lookout space with 50 other tourists looking to share in the views also!

What a way to showcase such a wobderful part of Bruny... a real appreciation for the channel side and the open ocean side of Bruny, a very uneffected place.

There is a bit of a climb up the stairs but the great all-round view is well worth the effort. Unfortunately we didn't see any penguins.
