Tasmania which is an island does have islands. Bruny Island is but one down south. Beautiful scenery, lovely beach and many walks can be done.
Many people live on Bruny Island and catch the ferry across to Kettering each day and home again in the evening if they work on Mainland Tasmania. However, there are many crossings during the day.
When I first went to Bruny Island many years ago, there were only a few shacks, only one shop that was open for a few hours a day, no boardwalks, not good access to the beach and no accommodation other than a great big paddock which was used to put a caravan on without power, it was on this land I parked my car, cooked a meal on an open fire, my friend and I slept in the car for one night having the times of our lives.....those were the days :) That was before I was married.
Took my husband to see Bruny Island a few years ago and we went for the day. Now there is a shop there open all day! Board walks, roads graded and quite a lovely village. Sheep, cows and so on..
There is a north and south island, the south island being hilly.
