Jo Campelli currently lives in outer suburban Melbourne. With her husband, she is seriously thinking of moving to Bruny Island to retire. How exciting!

Pros and Cons: Moving to Bruny Island

The Campelli duo will be visiting Bruny Island next week from Monday to Friday and will be conducting first-hand research while there. They’ve already earmarked a promising property to inspect.

Well aware of the fabulously-helpful community of readers at Think Tasmania, Jo would really appreciate suggestions and information. Maybe people could point out potential pros and cons of moving to Bruny Island? If you’ve made the move to Tasmania yourself, please share your experience here.

If you’re a local and you have special knowledge of the The Channel region, we’d love to hear from you. And of course, if you’re contemplating your own move to Tassie, you’re more than welcome to join our discussion (as many others have done before). We’ve shared photos here to showcase just some of the astoundingly-diverse attributes of Bruny Island… the food, scenery, beaches, wildlife and history to name just a few.

If you’re wondering, Jo hails from Guernsey in the Channel Islands and hubby is a born-and-bred Victorian. They have visited before (yes, even during winter!) and have fallen in love with Bruny Island. However, they would definitely appreciate some input from Think Tasmania readers before making their final decision.
