Park midway across the isthmus – aka the Neck – between North and South Bruny and climb to the Truganini Memorial for broad views of both ends of the island. Another timber walkway crosses the Neck to the beach on the ocean side, where you can watch little penguins shuffling ashore at dusk, politely sharing their burrows with clumsy muttonbirds.
