The Neck, Bruny Island is an isthmus of land connecting north and south Bruny Island, southern Tasmania. It offers a spectacular beach that stretches for miles with virtually no one on it, as is a great photo opportunity.

The Neck is an important habitat for Bruny’s native wildlife, and here you’ll find the Neck Game Reserve. Boardwalks and viewing platforms enable you to observe short-tailed shearwaters and little penguins (also known as fairy penguins). You can see these remarkable birds returning to their burrows in the sand dunes at dusk – little penguins making their way up the beach in tight groups and the shearwaters gliding in from the sea.

The Reserve has an interpretation board and during peak viewing times there is a Parks and Wildlife interpretation guide present at dusk. The best viewing period is during the warmer months—September to February. Timber stairs lead from the dunes to the Neck lookout, offering stunning 360 degree views.
