Neck Reserve camping area
The Neck is a narrow, sandy isthmus joining north and south Bruny. Halfway along it is a must-see lookout with 360-degree views, and at night the sand dunes below come alive with penguins. The camping area is sheltered among trees behind the dunes at the southern end of the beach. Arriving by ferry, head towards south Bruny then turn left into the camping area off the B66, 3 km past the lookout. Neck Beach is beautiful and you will more than likely have it to yourself, but care is needed when swimming in the surf as conditions can occasionally be treacherous and the water is cold. Note: a Parks Pass is not required here.

This campsite is located in South Bruny National Park
This wild and spectacular coastal national park takes in southern Bruny Island’s rugged shoreline and parts of its hinterland from Fluted Cape to Great Taylors Bay. It is dominated by massive dolerite sea cliffs and windswept heaths but there are also superb beaches and sheltered coves, these being the main attraction for campers. In summer, the camping areas are popular with visitors coming to fish, surf and laze away their holidays. Gas/fuel stoves are recommended, and no water or firewood is supplied.
