Sunrise at The Neck Bruny Island

The Neck Bruny Island is an interesting location for many reasons. It is a long and narrow sandy isthmus which connects North and South Bruny. There is a wooden lookout where the views out to sea (in all directions) are wonderful, and at dawn and dusk visitors may see the little penguins as they go make their way from their burrows to the sea and back.

The day we visited recently started out very calm and mild, with only a faint pink touching the sky at sunrise. The sun rose out beyond Cape Queen Elizabeth which is a nice half day walk.

Bruny Island is accessed by a ferry from Kettering around 40 minutes south of Hobart. After a 15~20 minute ride you are free to explore the gourmet cheese factory, winery and stunning natural attractions of the island. It is a bird lovers paradise, with many of Tasmania’s endemic bird species flourishing here.

The day turned into a stunningly clear day, with not a cloud in the sky. On our way off the island we stopped again at the Neck and enjoyed a bit of late winter sunshine.
