This is Bruny Island in Tasmania. Bruny sits off the southern tip of Tasmania, Australia, and is accessible only by ferry (or yacht). The island is divided into North Bruny Island and South Bruny Island, connected by a thin strip of land barely wide enough for a road. On one side of the road is the Tasman Sea. On the other side is the Great Bay, where some of the world’s best oysters are harvested. At some point, this road connecting north and south will most certainly wash away. For now, though, it is a spectacular journey.
