Take a walk on Tasmania's wild side: Part 2

During part one of our trip to Tasmania's wild west with Isuzu and its I-Venture Club, we discovered some of the more picturesque parts of the Apple Isle and learned a little about local history. The next two days would take no prisoners, however. We were to air down and explore the Henty Dunes, and get a little crossed up on the loose sand...

Take a walk on Tasmania's wild side: Part 1

I’m sure of it. Tasmania is the most pretty, untouched, unfettered and most natural part of Australia. In my time, I’ve had the privilege of exploring the more southern areas of the Apple Isle.
