Get shucked on Bruny Island

17:30 AEST Sat Mar 10 2012
Jules' Tasmanian journey started out by boat. As he said, he was going to an island off an island off an island.

Bruny Island is an hour from Hobart, and the 72km dot of land, around the size of Singapore, is home to just 650 lucky people. It's made up of north and south islands, united by an isthmus known as 'The Neck'.

There isn't a lot on the island and that's the way the locals like it. Accommodation is all self-contained. It's a BYO destination. There are very few shops, but you can buy oysters, wine, cheese and fudge from local producers.

I have been there & I climbed those stairs while 6 months pregnant. I have almost the same photo on canvas on my wall...
Took the Bruny Island Adventure Tour. It was amazing. The scenery magnificent. Saw about 2000 seals basking on the rocks and diving for fish. Well woth the trip.
