Bruny Island Neck Lookout
Tasmania

Bruny Island Neck is a narrow isthmus that joins North Bruny and South Bruny just off the southeast coast of Tasmania. In the middle of this thin strip of hills and beaches is the Bruny Island Neck Game Reserve which features a series of stairs and wooden observation platforms where people can observe the short-tailed shearwaters and the fairy penguins common to this area.

At this platform you can go down to the beach boardwalks to observe the penguins, or down to the car park  -or you can go up to the observation platform at the top of the hill.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
