Maatsuyker Through Our Eyes - Caretaking on Tasmania's Wild and Remote Maatsuyker Island

Author(s): Paul Richardson; Amanda Walker

* Tasmaniana

We had seen the island from a distance, read as much as we could about the island's history and heard about all the grass. We knew the scenery would be spectacular, the Southern Ocean swells an awesome sight, the wind a constant and that we would be alone. We did think the cold and wind might get us down at times but never having been on Maatsuyker, we couldn't quite imagine what it might be like. We just knew it would be different - which is in part, why we wanted to go. We went without any real expectations or imaginings, and found it was wild, spectacular and grand. We also found calm, peacefulness and joy.Island life was physically hard compared to home, but we thrived in that environment, living moment to moment. Never alone, the island birds were our companions and the seals' antics made us feel part of a family, bringing our own family closer; and through our care the lighthouse and island become our friends too.
