Bruny Island Lookout currently closed


Visitors to the Bruny Island Neck are reminded that the lookout remains closed and members of the public must not park on the roadside or enter the construction site at The Neck.

Although signage and fencing are in place, the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service and the Department of State Growth have received reports and photos of people ignoring 'no stopping' signs and bypassing fencing to access the Bruny Island Neck lookout.

Since reports were received in July of visitors ignoring signage at the construction site, additional prominent signage and fencing was installed and PWS staff are routinely patrolling the site to ensure people comply with the restrictions.

For their own safety, and in the interests of protecting the natural and cultural values of the site, members of the public should not enter for any reason.

Upgrade at The Neck are being jointly delivered by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service and the Department of State Growth and the work is progressing well with an expected completion date of December this year.
