From Ros Barnett:
'Peter Laidlaw visited the most amazing property on Bruny Island this week to assess potential camp sites and found a pearler in Simpsons Bay.
The cove is rocky but sheltered, with deep water not far from the beach. There is a magnificent grassy slope that flattens out for the camp site, with a sheltering hill behind that offers a gobsmacking view to anyone willing to invest in a walk to the top. You can see Fluted Cape, The Neck, and Cape Queen Elizabeth on one side and a great chunk of the Channel on the other. It is miles from the nearest dwelling or sealed road, and the land is all under a nature conservancy covenant. We will really be able to spread the tents out at this site. Snorers will be banished to the far side of the gully.
The fleet will be welcomed ashore by a huge mob of Bennetts Wallabies, and birdlife including masses of swallows, pardalotes and parrots. It is a fabulous new location to add into our raid.'
