Very well managed attraction in a fragile environmental area. This attraction has been well designed and constructed. The car park and toilet facilities are quite new and the path and stairs (over 200) are well made for a comfortable walk up to the look out....More

The views from the top are well worth the effort. It is disappointing to learn this walk will close over winter for replacement - sure it will be worth it but a pity this one couldn't remain open whilst the new one is built. Save...More

The steps to the top are quite steep, but I loved the fact that some of the young people who were going up for a look were running up the stairs. I love their stamina. I however took a leisurely climb and stopped to take...More

Be prepared to haul yourself up the three hundred odd steps to get to the lookout. The views are spectacular along the ocean side and are distinctly different on the bay side. Well worth the climb!

A fair climb up a few hundred wooden stairs to experience the view, but so very worth it. 360 degree views from the top of the Neck, and amazing coastline. However those with respiratory and/or heart conditions would struggle. There are also stairs down to...More

Only short walk up to the view point of The Neck; an amazing view you can find in the Bruny Island. You can seat back and relax on the platform to enjoy the wonderful view.

Don’t drive past! It won’t take long and is well worth the walk to the lookout to put the “Neck” into perspective. The penguins came out at late sunset year round but best viewed between September & February. Wear dark clothes, no camera flashes and...More

Black swans everywhere and at nighttime you can see the fairy penguins. This was the highlight to my trip to Bruny. There is a small lot to park so make sure you arrive early if you want to see the penguins. Also, make sure your...More

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
