Bruny Island, Tasmania

A narrow sandy isthmus connects what is virtually two islands with differing terrain and vegetation. The northern half is open grazing land and fairly flat, while the southern part is hilly and forested, including some patches of pure rainforest and cool fern glades. A car ferry runs from the mainland and it is possible to drive the length of the 50km island. Many charming bays are strung along the coastline and there are precipitous cliffs along the eastern side of the south island.
