Whilst crossing Bass Strait in a kayak isn't on my TODO list, paddling around some of the local Tasmanian islands certainly is!

I've just spent two weeks on a family holiday doing some research on the Tasman Peninsular and Bruny Island  whilst doing some sight seeing around Tasmania including some hiking around Cradle Mountain. We had a wonderful time and love the diverse wilderness that can be found in this Southern State.

The following link shows a short collection of photo's from the trip.  I'll update the post at some point post Christmas showing some photo's of the amazing coastline around this country.  I'm a surfer at heart and the Tasman Peninsular includes Ship Stern Bluff, one of the premier big wave spots in the world so paddling this area needs to allow for cold water (14 degrees in summer) and the roaring 40's.  We had relatively mild conditions and small surf as you can see in the east coast photo's included.

Hope you have a Happy Christmas and paddle safe!
