Bare Island guided tour - 2 session times
You'll meet your National Parks and Wildlife Service Discovery Ranger at the top of the path leading to Bare Island
At European contact Bare Island was associated with the Gweagal and Kameygal Aboriginal groups and referred to by Captain Cook as a 'small bare island'. Since those early times, the island has experienced a variety of uses and recognitions, from being a late nineteenth century coastal defence site, a veterans home, and site location for the film Mission Impossible.
You'll meet your National Parks and Wildlife Service Discovery Ranger at the top of the path leading to Bare Island, then cross the 130-year-old wooden footbridge where your guide will share the experiences of this nationally significant place.
Some exertion will be required for this activity. You will be walking distances, climbing stairs and walking on slippery and uneven surfaces.
Meet at the top of the path to Bare Island. Please allow time for parking and to find the group. Maximum 20 people per tour.
