Caretaking on Tasmania’s wild and remote Maatsuyker Island
“Be wary when the seals vanish from the rocks below, for they know what is coming – at 100 knots, with island-shuddering swells and torrential rain. Where time is measured in toilet rolls and blocks of chocolate. To live in the weather, alone together at the bottom of the world, challenged, confronted – and amazed and enchanted, the absolute privilege of life on Maatsuyker. Read this book, and envy Amanda and Paul”.
