Away from it all on Pic­nic Is­land

Vacations & Travel - - Travel Talk -

If you re­ally want to have a break from work and leave the world be­hind, Pic­nic Is­land in Tas­ma­nia might be just the place. This speck of an is­land is lo­cated in beau­ti­ful Coles Bay, and a ten-minute boat ride will have you en­sconced in one of only four ar­chi­tec­turally-de­signed cab­ins, sleep­ing a max­i­mum of 10 peo­ple. The com­mu­nal din­ing and lounge room, called the Bird­house, is com­fort­able and per­fect for do­ing noth­ing but re­lax­ing around the beau­ti­ful hang­ing fire­place. Spend time out­side in the crisp fresh air, ad­mir­ing the pen­guins that live in a colony on the is­land. Dusk is the best time, when they re­turn to their bur­rows af­ter a day out at the fish su­per­mar­ket. Dol­phins and seals also fre­quent the area. The Is­land will be run­ning hosted re­treats fo­cus­ing on ac­tiv­i­ties such as kayak­ing, hik­ing, yoga, art and cook­ing. pic­ni­cis­land.com.au
