Oct 31 The D’Entrecasteaux Channel is a region of water between Bruny Island and the south-east of the mainland of Tasmania. It extends between the estuaries of the Derwent and the Huon Rivers. It was sighted by Abel Tasman in 1642 and surveyed in 1792 by Bruni d’Entrecasteaux. We visit a sheep cheesery, a blow hole caused by wave erosion, Eggs and Bacon Bay, Peppermint Bay and lunched at Hartzview winery and restaurant. Tasmanians have a wierd sense of humour – please see the pictures of the hay bales.
