Satellite Island

with Caroline Clements
  • Where:Tasmania

  • Why:A long-awaited escape to a private island.

  • When:May 2016

  • Who:Me and seven friends.

Highs & Lows

  • Having an entire island to yourself. The freedom.

  • The isolation far down south in Tasmania. The quiet.

  • The fresh air and the amazing fresh organic produce - eggs from the chickens, veggies from the garden, seafood straight out of the ocean.

  • Richard, the island keeper, who is so helpful and there to facilitate your stay.

  • Make sure to bring everything you need with you. If you forget the milk, there’s nowhere shop for it. Once you are on the island you don’t get off for days.
