The Cape Bruny Lighthouse now has a new car park and increased accessibility after works recently wrapped up at the site.
The Cape Bruny Lighthouse Car Park and Access Project at South Bruny National Park was delivered by Tasmanian civil construction company, Andrew Walter Constructions and local sub-contractors.
The project was part of the 2021 Parks Powering Regional Economies commitment to plan and construct improved access the Cape Bruny Visitor Site. The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service section of Lighthouse Road has also been upgraded as part of the works.
Visitors to the Cape Bruny Lighthouse now have improved access to the historic site’s museum and amenities via a new car park and an all-abilities walkway. The new car park has more parking spaces, including disability parking as well as motorcycle and coach provisions.
Additionally, the new car park features improvements to allow for better traffic flow and pedestrian safety.
Overall, this project aims to assist in the management of Bruny Island’s natural and cultural values under the increased demands of high visitation and follow the completion of new public toilets at the site in 2019 and other works completed by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service at the Bruny Island Neck. Those works featured a new public toilet, car park, beach access walkway and replacement of the iconic staircase.
