The Isthmus, Bruny Island

The isthmus also known as the neck is a long narrow neck of land almost like a giant sandbar. The neck joins together North Bruny Island & South Bruny Island.

At the centre of the neck is a stunning lookout known locally as the hummock.

There are beaches on either side of the neck. There are stunning views of the surrounding beaches & coves from the hummock lookout.
It takes a little aerobic exercise to climb the wooden steps of the hummock but it is well worth the effort. The air is bracing at the top, the view is great & there are wooden benches at the top, so you can take a break & catch your breath.
