Head out for the day, breath the salty air and experience the remoteness at Cape Bruny. The Cape Bruny Lighthouse is the only Southern Tasmanian lighthouse open for tours. The heritage-listed 1836 (First lit 1838) Cape Bruny Lighthouse towers 114m above dramatic cliff tops and coves that form this wild rugged Tasmanian coastline of Cape Bruny. John Lee Archer, the famous architect that designed many well-known structures around the world was well ahead of his time and the iconic lighthouse he designed still stands proud today. Join our team of local Bruny Island resident guides that are passionate about this wonderful landmark. Climb the cast-iron spiral stairs to the top and out on to the balcony where the views are outstanding. Company owner Craig Parsey lived at The Cape Bruny Light Station as a child in the 1970’s with his Lighthouse keeper family. We also lived at Maatsuyker Island, Eddystone Point, and Low Head Lighthouse Stations. Follow us on Facebook and keep up to date with any news.
