This island is absolutely worth a day of your time. In retrospect, I wish I had booked a 2-3 day trip. There are 19 destinations in the map, all filled with coves and beaches. There is a hop on hop off bus for 20 AUD,...More

This is an ideal location to spend the whole day. Renting bikes if you are young or with kids is a must as it gives you access to the whole island. The scenery is breath taking and ideal to visit in summer or spring time....More
