AN ISLAND DESTINATION
GETTING TO SATELLITE ISLAND
Satellite Island is a scenic drive south of Hobart along a road that winds in and out of tiny inlets and quaint coastal towns.
BY CAR VIA BRUNY ISLAND
Satellite Island is approximately an hour and a half from Hobart. Head to the lovely coastal town of Kettering and catch the ferry across to stunning Bruny Island.
Drive the stretch of road exploring beautiful North Bruny Island stopping off on your way to pick up local gourmet treats from Bruny Island’s array of fabulous produce. Stop for oysters at Get Shucked Oyster Farm and lunch and a cheese tasting at the Bruny Island Cheese Factory. Climb the stairs at the Neck for stunning views of the isthmus between North and South Bruny, Adventure Bay and Great Bay, before arriving at the tiny town of Alonnah. The Island Keeper will be waiting to greet you at the Alonnah jetty and take you across to Satellite Island. The boat trip to the Island is only 5 minutes across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
Satellite Island is the perfect base for exploring Bruny Island and its many walks and activities. By day explore the treasures of Bruny Island and in the afternoon return to your own island paradise.
Arrive in style at your own private island, landing in a helicopter on the top of the island. It is a magical 20-minute trip from Hobart down the southern coastline to Satellite Island. Paravion can fly you by helicopter direct to Satellite Island from Hobart.
BY LUXURY CATAMARAN OR SAILING BOAT
Sail or cruise from Hobart straight to Satellite Island down the beautiful D’Entrecasteaux Channel. This is a wonderful way to arrive at Satellite Island. We use Southern Isle Charters for
private cruise charters, or Hobart Yachts for private sailing charters to the island. Each of these companies can tailor your one-way or return trip for you to include stopping for a lovely lunch of Tasmanian produce and wine at a secluded beach en route. The trip by sea from Hobart to the island without stopping will take approximately 3 hours.
