This summer, the King Harry Ferry is exhibiting artwork by acclaimed local artists John Dyer and Joanne Short. The series of prints, reminiscent of vintage 1930s travel posters, capture the subtropical beauty of the Roseland Peninsular. Bursting with colour, the artwork showcases the villages, beaches, and harbours that can be found on this spectacular area of coastline.

The only sounds at night in the summer would be the crickets and the gentle distant sound of the waves crashing on the shore. It was absolutely magical and I feel nourished by that experience still.
