“Adventure Bay is home to about 200 snow-white wallabies.”
Adventure Bay is a large eastern-facing bay on South Bruny. Adventure Bay is one of the main townships of Bruny Island. It is approximately 35 minutes drive from Roberts Point. Adventure Bay is the base of a number of the island's main walks and a variety of tourist attractions. The Adventure Bay Beach is a popular spot for swimming as it is one of the more sheltered beaches on the island.
The area is also of cultural and historical significance with a decorated history. Adventure Bay was named after Captain Tobias Furneaux's ship 'The Adventure' in 1773. The area was visited by Furneaux and also Captains Cook, Bligh, D'Entrecasteaux and Tobin in the 1700s.
There is something very exciting about Adventure Bay - The White Wallaby, it is unique to Bruny Island and can be found close to the habitations at the south side of Adventure Bay. The other name for this Albino wallaby is 'Painted wallaby' . The animal is completely white and flourishes in this small part of the island with a very healthy colony.
The White Wallaby can be observed at most times of day but the evening is when they are most obvious. They are used to the attention of people and so it is possible to get quite close to them for a photo.
