Labillardiere Peninsula Circuit is a 18km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in South Bruny National Park Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 6hrs to complete.

Summary

This track circuits the Labillardiere Peninsula, within the South Bruny National Park, one of the more remote corners of Bruny Island. The walk is not hard and there are great views of the Southern Ranges.

Highlights

This walk will take you through some lovely examples of coastal heathland and dry sclerophyll forests. The peininsula takes its name from Labillardiere, a naturalist with the French expedition led by Brune’ D’Entrecasteaux. The French party spent a month exploring Recherche Bay and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel between 21 April and 28 May 1792 and again from 21 January to 1 May 1793

The remains of the jetty at the western end of the Jetty Beach are a reminder of the early days when supplies to the Cape Bruny lighthouse were bought in by ship. From the corner of the beach evidence of the track that ran to the lighthouse can be seen.

Region
