The Privately Owned Satellite Island in Tasmania
Satellite Island Resort
Located in a sheltered pocket of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel in southern Tasmania, the rugged 84 acre Island can only be reached by private boat from nearby Bruny Island. There are no roads, no shops, no other guests, not even wi-fi – which is how visitors like it. Privately owned by Melbourne couple Kate and Will Alstergren, the island originally belonged to Will’s uncle, Ian Alstergren, who bought it in the 1960s as a base for his writing and painting. After extensive renovations and a serious style injection – from Kate and stylist, Tess Newman-Morris – the island was opened to guests in 2013. Booking info is below if you’re interested!
