Our Tours

Cape Bruny Lighthouse

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 enthusiastically 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 before the station was automated.

“You’d sit there in the tower, on some of those nights, it was eerie those nights, a mass of white sheet and sleet and that, it’s hard to explain – as you look into the storm, but it’s just like looking into a firestorm, just roaring at you as it hits the tower”
