The Private Island Off the Coast of Tasmania You’ve Never Heard of
The opportunity to stay on a private island—exclusively— certainly isn’t a common occurrence, especially in Australia. But now the experience can be yours! Introducing Satellite Island, located in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel between the Tasmanian mainland and Bruny Island, whic has only just recently become available to the public and therefore, incredibly, remains completely unspoilt.
It’s not the type of private island that your mind inevitably conjures complete with white sandy beaches and aquamarine waters—think native bush, ancient blue gums, sheer sea cliffs, pebble beaches, and sunny coves. Hello, quintessential Australian private island.
The rugged 30-hectare secluded piece of land can be yours to explore exclusively and experience a 360° view of the southern hemisphere. Enjoy stunning walking tracks, discover the island via kayak and fish on the rocky banks. Tip: Add to bucket list.
For more information, images to inspire your wanderlust and to book a night on the private island exclusively (from $1050 a night for two people for a minimum of two nights) head to Satellite Island.
