According to this site, Where is Opossum Bay? The origin of Opossum Bay's name is unclear. Opossum Bay is nearly surrounded by water. As can be seen from the below photograph, the Gellibrand Point, Opossum Bay and South Arm Town area is connected to the rest of the South Arm Peninsula by a narrow isthmus. The proximity of water (the Derwent Estuary and Ralphs Bay ) Derwent River (Tasmania), Ralphs Bay can result in Opossum Bay being frequently cooled by sea breezes in summer.
