Long Island

Only four nautical miles from the mainland Long Island, as its name suggests, is an elongated (9km from top to bottom), relatively narrow island separated from the mainland by a deep, narrow channel. It is quite hilly, the east coast with rocky bluffs, except for a few low, sandy saddles about a quarter of the way down where advantage of flat land has been taken to build holiday resorts. The vegetation is quite dense with vine forest and eucalypt forest.
