Bruny Island is a 362-square-kilometre island located off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, Australia. The island is separated from the Tasmanian mainland by the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, and its east coast lies within the Tasman Sea. Storm Bay is located to the island’s northeast.

Bruny Island has some of Tasmania’s most beautifully preserved natural environments with abundant wildlife and stunning clifftop views.

The island is about 50 km long but appears to be two islands with North and South Bruny joined by a narrow strip of land called The Neck. This isthmus is an important habitat for native wildlife. A highlight is South Bruny National Park, with towering cliffs overlooking long sandy beaches, coastal heathland, and underwater gardens of kelp seaweed with some amazing bushwalks to take it all in.

The island is also a haven for many rare and endangered plants and animals.

Rob Pennicott and his artist wife Michaye live an idyllic family life on Bruny Island. Surrounded by nature and a bountiful sea, Bruny appears to be paradise, but as Rob suggests, may not be for everyone. I also discuss the sad history of Truganini, the last full-blooded Tasmanian Aborigine.

Hi AliOtis
Yeah it is a pretty sad story about the Tassie Aboriginals. Tassie's history was very brutal, for both the Aboriginals and convicts. How do we move on from this? I suppose acknowledging it helps.

Overlander, I just have to ask you this question…Do you have any experiences of your own that would lead you to believe the Tasmanian tigers still exist (or not)?

@kbvilla There have been a lot of people that have spent a lot of time and money finding a tiger, including Bob Brown who I interview for the sth wst wilderness story. Very slim chance
