Our last full day in Hobart took us to Bruny Island.
Bruny Island is made up of a North and South Island which are separated by a narrow isthmus called “The Neck”. Access to the island is by vehicular ferry departing from Kettering. The trip takes 15 minutes and arrives at Roberts Point on North Bruny.
Bruny Island provides the ultimate Tasmanian wilderness experience. We spent hours driving through the forest and did not end up visiting many places of interest. Perhaps we should have taken a guided tour instead.
We flew home the next day deciding to sing ‘Auld Lang Syne’ in our home country and watched the local fireworks with my pet dog, Toby. No regrets on our last minute decision to cancel the Sydney trip and missed out on what is supposedly the best New Year Eve’s fireworks in the world.
Till then, goodbye Tasmania.
If you are thinking of visiting Hobart, a six day, five nights trip is ideal. We had a wonderful time as you can see from all the lovely stories and photographs below.
