Tasmania - Bruny Island

We took a short trip across to Bruny Island while in Tasmania. The islands (two joined by a famous isthmus) are full of white sandy beaches, beautiful fauna and flora and plenty of places to taste local food and drinks.

Adventure Bay

some beaches weren't sandy, this one was on our Labillardiere Peninsula Trail run

Driving across the isthms, the cyclists were not having fun on the bumpy dirt road

An Echidna at the side of the was alive (we saw loads of roadkill!)
