Flinders Island Food & Crayfish Festival
$955.00 – $1,050.00
Prices shown are per person. Minimum booking numbers apply.
The 2020 Flinders Island Food and Crayfish Festival is set to build on the success of the previous two events to create an experience that celebrates all the island has to offer. Once again the Festival is proud to present an all-star line up featuring some of Australia’s most talented and adventurous chefs to showcase the Island’s produce, culture and history across four days of innovative programming.
The Festival’s signature event – the long lunch – will take place at one of the Island’s most breathtaking locations. Be prepared to experience a feast of everything Flinders Island represents: wilderness, community, connection, food and the natural elements.
The inaugural Flinders Island Food and Crayfish Festival in 2018 was created to showcase the little-known food and natural beauty of Flinders Island – a windswept, rocky outcrop perched on the north-east tip of Tasmania with a permanent population of around 900 people. Festival organisers invited some of Australia’s best chefs to discover the bounty of Flinders Island and the resulting event received national coverage.

Three Hummock Island
$950.00 – $2,100.00
Prices show are per person. Minimum numbers apply.
Our premier adventurous weekend destination. Stay on a remote island of crystal blue waters, white sands and a rich variety of native animals and birds. Enjoy walks, fishing, snorkelling and kayaking around this island – completely to yourself!
Stay in excellent off-the-grid accomodation in the original Homestead. With sweeping views of the ocean and just a short stroll from the beach, the Homestead is embodiment of a remote island retreat.
Breathtaking Three Hummock Island sits just off the coast of North West Tasmania. It is a magical place of granite coastlines, protected coves, sweeping beaches and surprising diversity.
Three Hummock Island has one of the purest environments on the planet – crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, inland lakes and forests remain largely untouched.
Twenty kilometres away, a Baseline Air Pollution Station consistently measures the air as the cleanest in the world.
Many paths on the island take you to locations of exceeding beauty. By climbing some 237 metres up South Hummock – the highest point – you can take in a view of the island, nearby Hunter Island and mainland Tasmania.
Birdlife abounds on the island, with over 90 species recorded. Wild ducks, black swans and eagles frequent the small lakes behind the sand dunes lining the beaches. A wide variety of sea birds are seen around the coast, including international visitors that come to the Island to breed. Short-tailed Shearwaters are a spectacular sight as they return in thousands to their rookeries at dusk, and penguins can be observed making their nightly trip up the beach to their nests during the summer months.
We love to welcome guests to our secluded paradise. Escape to Three Hummock Island for a memorable getaway.
