Maatsuyker Changeover

(Sunday, 22 September 2019)

Hannah Sutton and Grant Ryan dropped by the Tas Maritime base having set foot once again on the Tasmanian mainland after their six-month winter stint as caretakers on Maatsuyker Island.

The highlight of their stay was their engagement as reported on the ABC and reproduced here. After enduring 85-knot winds and 9-metre seas mixed with glorious days and wildlife that had no fear of humans, they landed at Cambridge only to be shaken back to reality by the traffic and the sights and smells of Hobart.
