Historic Dennes Point or Kelly's Point as it was originally known, was the gateway to North Bruny from before the turn of the century, until the event of the vehicular ferry in 1954, and first settled by captain James Kelly in the 1800's. Kelly gained fame for circumnavigating Tasmania in a whaling-boat, he was also known as being the father and founder of whaling in Tasmania. A 25 minute drive from Roberts Point where the ferry arrives, Dennes Point is a great boating and fishing spot, a safe swimming-beach and picnic-area, it boasts spectacular views of the channel and Derwent estuary. Fishing is available from the jetty. Close by, Bull Bay was a major whaling station in the 1820's.
