Located in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel between mainland Tasmania and Bruny Island, Satellite Island is a private escape getaway unspoiled by the likes of the public. The whale-shaped landmass takes around an hour and a half to walk around, whether you’re on the high path, or walking the ancient rock shelf at low tide. You can stay at the Summer House, which has room for 12 guests, or enjoy proximity to the water at the more intimate Boathouse — the choice is yours, since you have the entire island to yourself. No matter where you rest your head, you’ll be welcomed with a bottle of champagne and a bucket of oysters, and can avail yourself of the free-range eggs, garden, and fruits of the sea, or have the caretaker Richard run you into town for more traditional fare like wallaby burgers and fries.
