Run #5 - Labilladiere Peninsula
Distance: 17.6 km
Date: 15th September 2019
Description: The Labilladiere Peninsula on Bruny Island provides an ideal location for a return loop run.
This run starts at the Jetty beach campground and does a clockwise loop of the peninsula. Starting out on the 4wd track down the western side provides magnificent views of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and the Southern ranges. At the bottom, runners take in a rare view of Partridge Island from the picturesque Butlers Beach before following a beautiful single track along the eastern side of the peninsula back to Jetty Beach.
There is a nice campground at Jetty beach for those who want to camp the night before (or after). There is also great surfing, snorkelling, sea kayaking and a few other walks nearby.
