Miranda and Katie are here to help give you the inside track.

The World Heritage site offers a private tropical haven for a maximum of twelve guests, and accommodation is comprised of six safari style tents complete with private shower, deck and hammock.

There is a gazebo for daytime lounging, with books and binoculars to look at the panoramic views, and look out spots are dotted around the island. Other activities include watching Green and Loggerhead turtles nest and hatch, whale watching and snorkelling.

After a day of seclusion, guests can socialise in the Longhouse where meals are served en famille. The sand floor and candles add to the relaxed atmosphere, and menus rely on fresh seafood and local fruit, accompanied by plenty of Australian beers and wine.

Why we love it

If we had to be shipwrecked anywhere, this would be very high on the list.
