Bruny Island and Eco Adventure Tour (Australia)

In my last post, I uploaded some pictures taken in Hobart, Tasmania. From here, we took a 40 minute drive, and arrived at Bruny Island (Click on this link for its exact location)

It consists of 2 islands joined by an isthmus, shown in the first photo. The view from the viewing platform was really lovely. Pictured on the left are my husband and I braving the cold and strong winds.

We rented a house by the sea, on an amazing spot with fantastic views (the next 3 photos). We would have been happy to stay indoors the entire trip.

But we did go out... and here are a couple of photos taken around the island.

Eco Adventure Tour

One of the highlights was going on the Eco Adventure Tour to see the coastline and wildlife. We went out on a boat similar to the one below. The crew offered us ginger tablets to counter sea-sickness. The sea was quite rough, so I took 2 (just in case!).

I lived in the north of Tasmania for two years but did not go to Bruny Island! I did see Maria Island however! Wish I had seen this one too! It looks brilliant for photos!
