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.
