Jetty Beach camping area
Behind the gentle curve of Jetty Beach, this camping ground among the trees is very popular – and deservedly so. Sheltered from the south-west, it faces a sandy cove with clear water, safe swimming, great snorkelling and excellent fishing. The 6 hr circuit walk around Labillardiere Peninsula starts from the campsite, and Australia’s second oldest lighthouse is at Cape Bruny, 3 km south. Turn right onto the C629 at Lunawanna and then right into Jetty Rd, 17 km further on. Most of this road is gravel and affords fantastic views of Cape Bruny just before the turn-off. Bring insect repellent as well as water and firewood.

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.
