Hike Summary

The Point Track is a perfect way to while away some time if you're waiting for the Bruny Island ferry. This gentle walk starts at the end of Ferry Road and meanders close to the shoreline with glimpses of the water and boats through the sheoaks. At the point you will be rewarded by panoramic views up and down the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and across to Bruny Island. The Kettering Coastcare/Landcare Group cleared away choking weeds to create these tracks through the lightly wooded coastal bushland. A great variety of birds can be seen and heard, foraging amongst the black gums and blue gums, and in the varied understorey. Limited parking at end of Ferry Road (Point Track).

About the region

Kettering is a quiet town on the shores of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and the departure point for the ferry to Bruny Island and its many attractions. Surrounded by bushland and lush green hills that roll down to the water's edge, Kettering offers a relaxed lifestyle popular among artists and sailing enthusiasts.

Getting there

The Kettering Point Track starts at the end of Ferry Road in Kettering.
