We then take a scenic drive through rainforests to South Bruny National Park for your exclusive Cape Bruny Lighthouse Tour. Here, you will be astounded by the spectacular and rugged coastal views, expanses of coastal vegetation and the wildlife including whales, white wallabies, eagles, echidnas and more that call this area their home.
