Picnic Island

Your own private island just offshore from the beautiful Freycinet Peninsula, and around the corner from the word famous Wineglass Bay.
This stunning copper clad lodge is designed by Tasmanian architect John Latham.
We have beds for 10 guests as well as the communal “Birdhouse” where you get together for a meal, relax on the deck or by the open fire with a wall of glass cantilevered over the high water mark.
When the sun goes down the penguins and shearwaters come in. You will be amazed by hundreds of birds arriving back to their burrows.
If sealife is more your thing you may well spot a whale, dolphin or seal just off the island. If you fish, flathead and squid are abundant as well as mussels you can pick off the rocks and abalone and sea urchins under the sea.
Please note this is a wild nature experience so expect the unexpected and be prepared for the adventure retreat of a lifetime.
Please call us for our special offers.

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania's deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
