Humans have been seeking out the healing powers of the forest for thousands of years. The Japanese even have a name for it – shinrin-yoku. “Shinrin” means forest, “yoku” means bath. Mix this with the therapeutic qualities of seawater, and you can skip the trip to the doctor, and instead, head for a long weekend to Bruny Island, off Tasmania’s southeast coast.
