One of Earth's purest environments

SITTING just off the coast of North West Tasmania, Three Hummock Island is a magical place of granite coastlines, protected coves, sweeping beaches and surprising diversity.

It is one of the purest environments on the planet with crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, inland lakes and forests remain largely untouched.

Activities on the island include bird watching, fishing, snorkelling, swimming, diving and beach-combing.

Three Hummock Island has two accommodation options, the recently renovated homestead which sleeps up to 14 people
and the guest cottage sleeping four people with the same ocean views as the homestead.

The homestead has a fully equipped kitchen and two new bathrooms.

Guests can unwind after a day’s beach-combing or fishing or kayaking in the living room with its fire, TV and DVD player. Or enjoy breathtaking sunsets on the large deck area overlooking the beach while preparing the day’s catch on the BBQ and utilising the fresh produce from the extensive kitchen garden.

John and Beverley, the island’s full-time caretakers are happy to assist guests with anything from details on the best fishing spots to visits to the fairy penguins at dusk.
