Bruny Island Neck lookout re-opens

10/11/2017

The walkways and lookout at the Bruny Island Neck will re-open to the public today, following the completion of a new, larger car park that will provide improved access to the popular lookout.


The Neck is one of the most popular locations on Bruny Island and the ongoing upgrades will ensure the island keeps up with tourism demand while increasing road safety for locals, tourists and wildlife.


The new car park will provide for 24 spaces plus bus parking, with safer entry and exit driveway access. Further upgrades, including a new boardwalk and viewing platforms are expected to begin in 2018 after ground nesting birds have left the site.


Upgrades to the toilet facilities are also expected to be finalised in mid-January, with signs currently directing the public to an alternate facility at the Bruny Neck campground.


The upgrades at Bruny Island Neck are being jointly delivered by the Department of State Growth and Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service.
