Cape Bruny Lighthouse, Bruny Island

Bruny Island Lighthouse Tours

Australia’s southern most lighthouse tour

Experience the Southern most lighthouse tour in Australia. Cape Bruny Lighthouse is the only lighthouse in Southern Tasmania opened to the public and tours are operated by Bruny Island Safaris. Towering above the spectacular rugged coastline on the southern tip of Bruny Island with sweeping views of the wild Southern Ocean. Regular sightings of migrating whales, Albatross, Gannets and many other pelagic species can be seen gliding over the ocean swells. We have even had a wedge Tailed Eagle glide so close to the tower we could almost touch it. There are great photo opportunities at every point of the compass. Climb the spiral staircase to the lighthouse balcony and experience the spectacular vistas of the South West Wilderness and small islands dotting the coastline. The lighthouse prisms are still in working order and amazing to wonder what it was like to be a lighthouse keeper.

Operates daily 10am – 3pm (Self drive)

$17.50 Adults / $15.00 Children (5 to16years)

  • I went on the cape Bruny sunset tour and it was just amazing. I called up before hand to let the know tour guide know I was going to propose to my girlfriend up there and he made sure it all went smoothly without her knowing. The views were just amazing also the the guide was a great bloke as well as the receptionist Tiara.
  • Drive to the lighthouse is long and nothing much to do and see alone the way. Scenery around the lighthouse is spectacular. We walked up to the top deck . Guide we had was very informative and friendly. Flexible tour times.
