Bruny Island Picture Diary

Whilst I was working at a strawberry farm in Tasmania, and living at Little Devils Backpackers, we looked out and were sent home on a beautiful Sunday morning. Not wanting to spend the day at the hostel I managed to convince the boys we should make the most of the free ute and head to Bruny Island for the day. It didn’t take much, and soon we were off.

Bruny is a small island off Tasmania, a trip from Kettering port to Roberts Point with take you 15 minutes on the ferry. You’ll need transport to get around here, with a population of only 620 across the island public transport is hard to come by, hitch-hiking might be an option though.

So, this was our day at Bruny Island, plus a little hike and a spot of lunch. It is such a beautiful and untouched place, anyone spending time in Tasmania should spend a day here.
