Cape Queen Elizabeth

Cape Queen Elizabeth

3 hours return. The walk begins along a wide track which runs parallel with the Bruny Island airstrip, then between Big Lagoon and Little Lagoon, before climbing over Mars Bluff for great views across The Neck. The track then descends through the dunes onto the remote Miles Beach. At the far eastern end of the beach, the track ascends steeply through coastal heath, before sidling south to Cape Queen Elizabeth for excellent views of Adventure Bay and beyond. Muttonbird rookeries can be seen on the way. Allow extra time to spot a forty-spotted pardalote amongst the white gums, see the rock formations at Mars Bluff (accessed from Neck Beach), and find the little fisherman’s shack hidden in the dunes at the eastern end of Miles Beach.
