Fluted Cape Walk

Walk Fluted Cape and explore Bruny Island's spectacular scenery on this full-day adventure from Hobart

Take in the stunning coastal scenery at your own pace, unguided, on one of Tasmania's Great Short Walks. 

Your adventure highlights the unique natural environment of Bruny Island.  Feel on top of the world and marvel at reaching the top of one of Australia's highest sea cliffs and its magnificent views over Adventure Bay and out to Storm Bay. Alternatively, Grass Point offers a shorter and less challenging option with views up to the Fluted Cape. 

  • Fluted Cape - 2.5 hours return, 4km adventurous and exciting circuit walk with spectacular views. Some steep areas. Bushwalking experience recommended.
  • Grass Point - 1.5 hours return, 4km, suitable for most abilities. The track has a hardened or compacted surface that may have a gentle hill section/sections and occasional steps.

Part of South Bruny National Park, the remarkable Jurassic dolerite cliffs of the Fluted Cape soar over 270 metres. Your walk will take you through dry sclerophyll forest, past tall blue gums, white peppermint and sheoaks. Keep a lookout for endemic birdlife and be amazed at the spectacular coastal views.

You'll also be wowed by the glorious vista from the iconic Neck Lookout. Climb the 240 wooden steps to take in the narrow isthmus between north and south Bruny Island or explore the white sands of The Neck Beach.
