Satellite Island

In the heart of the magnificent D'Entrecasteaux Channel, in the south of Tasmania, lies a small island of immense beauty. Sheer sea cliffs fall away to pristine water and wild shellfish can be found in the ancient rock shelf that circles the Island. A pair of rare white breasted sea eagles who live on the Island can be seen soaring high above the huge blue gums, whilst quail and native wildlife forage below.

About Satellite Island

Satellite Island is truly a unique destination.

Satellite Island has never before been accessible to the public. It remains utterly unspoilt. With 360° views of this southern hemisphere wilderness—a mix of beautiful native bush, ancient blue gums, sheer sea cliffs, pebble beaches and sunny coves—Satellite Island is a secluded secret hideaway, yours alone to explore.


It is hard to describe the magic of staying on your own private island. Time seems to stand still. Satellite Island is about slowing life down and enjoying the simple things: a bonfire on the top of the island at sunset; a long lunch at the Boathouse on the water’s edge; cooking freshly caught fish over a fire on the pebble beach; beach combing for sea treasures along the rock shelf walk; fishing at dusk off the jetty; shucking wild oysters straight from the sea; diving for urchin, abalone and mussels; watching the sunset across the Southern Ocean at Last Glimpse Point; watching the sunrise over nearby Bruny Island; swimming in the pristine waters surrounding the island; lying on a sun lounge on the water’s edge with a book and just the sound of the sea and surrounded by the Tasmanian wilderness. There is so much or so little to do on Satellite Island.

You wont want to leave your island paradise, but if you do beautiful Bruny Island with its gourmet produce, winery, stunning walks and beaches and adventure activities is only a stone’s throw from Satellite Island.
