I have just come back from a week of “island-hopping” on two of Tasmania’s most well known island destinations – Maria Island and Bruny Island. As I mentioned in a previous post, the ferry to Maria Island was running free of charge this winter so I took advantage of that to spend two nights/three days on the island. The fossil cliffs and painted cliffs were the obvious highlight but the Cape Barren Geese (with their young chicks in tow), historic buildings and a misty climb up Bishop and Clerk also provided great photographic opportunities.
Bruny Island is well loved by locals and any visits there should indulge a little in the gourmet side of things – there is cheese, wine, seafood and even a chocolate factory to visit on top of all the natural attractions the island is so famous for.
I will be posting many images from both these trips in the coming days – stay tuned.
