South Bruny National Park comprises extensive coastal and wooded hinterland areas. At Fluted Cape near Adventure Bay, an easy trail leads to the old whaling station at Grass Point (1½ hours return). From here, Penguin Island is accessible at low tide, or tackle the challenging Cape Circuit (2½ hours return).

The park’s southwestern portion comprises the Labillardiere Peninsula, featuring jagged coastal scenery and Cape Bruny Lighthouse. Walks here range from leisurely beach meanderings to a seven-hour peninsula circuit.
