We were touring with our car. Arrived at the neck to find the regular parking lot closed. We did manage to find a spot to stop and walk on the beach. Breathtaking views from both sides of this very narrow strip connecting the two halves...More

We only passed but couldn't stop. But it is still good area to see the surroundings. Ocean water is so cleaned and fresh endlessly. You can stop just a bit after for foods. There aren't many places for dine so when you see place better...More

I have wanted to visit Bruny Island for a very long time, but nothing prepared me for the views from the top of the stairs at The Neck. Bruny Island is, in fact, two islands, North Bruny and South Bruny separated by a narrow isthmus....More

Having spent 5 years studying in Tasmania, I dare say Bruny Island is my favourite place on Earth. I have visited Bruny island countless times for fishing, weekend getaways and day trips. The island, albeit small, has alot to offer! That being said, a trip...More

The carpark at the Neck is being upgraded so we couldn't pull over and have a look; but the views (both sides) from the car were fantastic.

It was so easy to drive by the small parking lot to where the stairs are located. One can see the neck as you drive on it, however, the view from the stairs is outstanding. Hopefully, they will have some type of viewing... More
