The roads to access the area are very good, making it easy to get to some of the more beautiful areas of Bruny Island

Bruny Island was a nice spot to visit and it was worth self-driving this island as we were not rushed along on a tour.
It was a bit of a trek to the light house but the view was amazing. Be warned though, you travel on a good dirt road for about 35 minutes, however a downside was the dirt road was un-maintained for the last few kilometres before the light house, it can get rough in spots.

We -- two middle-aged tourists from the US and two young adults living in Oz -- enjoyed our trip to Bruny Island perhaps more than any other part of our Tasmanian holiday. We drove our rental car first to the Bruny Island Lighthouse: a wonderful combination of green, grassy slopes and craggy, rocky coast. Then we ventured back north to a secluded area off Cloudy Bay Lagoon that was truly heavenly. After that, we drove to the other side of the island and hiked in the forest reserve. Unfortunately, we mistook a hunter's track for the actual trail, and ended up with leeches crawling all over our legs -- but eventually, we figured out our mistake and discovered the truly wonderful trail. (Perhaps not a part of South Bruny Natl Park proper, but certainly on South Bruny Island).

One of the best things about South Bruny is that, on the way back to the ferry, you pass through North Bruny -- where you can stop and sample some truly great local cheese, and then stop at a distillery. What's not to like?

I came to Tassie to "do" South Bruny Island from a walking point of view. Im not interested in the foodie side.
But I was disappointed,the roads in the NP were worrying for me in a 2WD rental,and the bush was just OK.The view on the walk down from fluted cape is interesting and so is the area around the lighthouse,but I didnt get time to do the inland walks which may have been better,or the QE walk.
But I did see the white wallaby(had to search,its not tame)

The fluted cape walk is an excellent day walk in South Bruny National Park. You start downbeat Cooktown and can head off south on a circuit. It's best to go anticlockwise in my opinion as you head up through forest but descend along the cape edge with excellent views over the water.

Like many Tas roads you have to travel down stony roads to get here but worth it.
We decided not to go down to the lighthouse at Cape Bruny [ another stony road and we could see from a distance] but walked the peninsular.This was great and generally level with lovely beaches to walk along.

My wife and I, plus a friend, all of us "of a certain age" were staying a few kms from the National Park and the Lighthouse, so decided late one afternoon to drive down there to have a look at it. After quite a few kms of poor quality dirt road, we arrived at a spectacular lookout, which had a very non-spectacular feature - a "self-serve" National Parks entrance payment box, and we found we would have to pay an entrance fee of $24, a "road toll" as far as we were concerned, to go any further. As it was late afternoon and we didn't have the time to "make a day of it" all we would have done was to have driven as close to the lighthouse as possible, taken a few photos and left. Our levels of fitness unfortunately would have precluded any serious bush-walking in the area. As it would have been a very expensive exercise for $24, we opted to turn around and not proceed further. It is obvious none of the money collected is being spent on the road - we were in a normal road car, and I would not have liked to have taken it on anything rougher! I have to say, we have visited there before, many years ago before the closure of National parks by expensive park fees, and there is some quite spectacular scenery. If you are younger, fitter and happy to pay the exorbitant price of entry, then you may well have a great day out in this park.

Very tired and poorly maintained roads. Just not worth the drive. Parking at key spots was poor. No tax payers money spent here

The best place and way to protect this nature park that has all types of the Tasmanian plants and other types of natural phenomenon - you wont get a better place to take great photographs of Tasmanian highlights

A great way to see the Tasmania Fauna and Flora within a protected environment in s National Park so that it is there for generations to come and not destroyed by all who enter
