Bruny Island at Dusk is an amazing place to be. The White Wallaby's come out to play at dusk as do the
Fairy Penguins.
The Old Lighthouse is a stunning place to be at any time of day. The Lighthouse still stands but it has been replaced by solar powered lights on a nearby hill. At dusk the lights power up & still play a crucial role in seeing ships safely through the channel.
In the old days the lighthouse was lit by a huge light refracting oil lamp, which had to be lit by hand & tended by the lighthouse keeper. When the Lighthouse was first built it was inaccessible by land & the Lighthouse keeper lived a solitary existence. Food & other important rations were delivered by boat to a nearby cove.
Today there is a road called Lighthouse road which bumps & winds its way through the bush & along a stunning coastline with many lookouts & beaches. If you carefully drive this dirt road to the Lighthouse you won't be disappointed!
Nothing beats walking along the beach at dusk, with a cool breeze at you're back.
