The White Wallaby of Bruny Island

The White Wallaby of Bruny Island

Thursday November 28, 2013

There is a special star attraction on Bruny Island – sounding a bit like a character from a Lord of the Rings movie, the “White Wallaby of Adventure Bay” kept us intrepid explorers enthralled on a recent two day photography workshop on the island. It was interesting to see that the white wallaby has a regular brown coloured joey!

Apart from the White wallaby…

Bruny Island is a nature lovers paradise. Apart from the white wallaby, it is particularly known for bird watching. In a short couple of hours we saw a white bellied sea eagle, oyster catchers, herons, a rosella and many others I can’t name…

As with all of my workshops and in the field tuition, a dusk and dawn shoot were included and we were treated to quite a dramatic display of cloud and light over the thin strip of land known as the Neck. Magically the thick cloud cleared for around 30 minutes to allow a little bit of fire in the sky before completely clouding over again.
