What to do on your holiday?


Do as little or as much as you like at your private Beach House on

Three Hummock island

Sit here in your accommodation and read (or sleep) with the fire going (if needed) - even catch up with those DVD's you have been meaning to watch!

 Fish from our jetty a short walk from the Beach House

 Walk (or hitch a ride from us) to Eleanor's Bay - a beautiful secluded Bay

Walk everyday to a new location OR just sleep in, late brekky, read, enjoy the view, watch the animals, Kangaroos, Purple Swamp Hens, Cape Barren Geese (to name a few) from your accommodation as they graze peacefully. Just relax, be lazy – something a lot of people have forgotten how to do, which is why Three Hummock Island's Beach House Accommodation is the perfect place to unwind for a week or so! Does this Sound bliss?

Here is a suggested 3 night itinerary to show how you could spend a few days, within the close proximity of your private Beach House. We are your only neighbours (the only other people in fact), and we don’t need to come anywhere near you, if that is the holiday you pine for!

The private Beach house - 100 years old but newly renovated for your comfort

We are happy to drop you off at a destination or take you for a free tour. You could maybe walk back to the accommodation at your leisure.

Day One –  Arrival day

We will transfer you from your transport, to your accommodation – welcome from Beverley and John (something yummy for morning/afternoon tea!) and orientation. You may like to organise us to cater your first meal (or all of your meals) while holidaying here.

Simply rest and take it all in after your journey

Day Two

After a restful (very quiet here) sleep take a walk to the western side of the island, to Spiers Bay and view the Five Sisters amazing rock formation. Rock hop around to Burgess Point, where we collect our Three Hummock Island Salt (T.H.I.S) in Summer. Continue around to West Telegraph Beach and view the Petroglyphs at the northern end of the beach; enjoy a slide at the sand dunes too. Walk back to the accommodation via the Rendevous Lagoon and the Home Airstrip – always lots of animals to photograph.

All up walking would be about 10 kilometres - or we could pick you up at an arranged time in the car or we can loan you a radio and you can call when you are ready to be collected.

Day Three

Eleanor’s Bay – a truly lovely spot – particularly at low tide – further along the track is the turnoff to South Hummock – 1 kilometre track uphill to view the local area from our highest peak – 237 metres.

14 kilometres today if you walk the entire way.

Day Four

Homeward bound – time left to put a line in or take some more photographs before you leave this wonderful island.


This is just to give you an idea – there is so much to see and explore here you could spend a month or more!

There are no shops here which means no hidden costs to your holiday!


  1. Sounds blissful! I will definately adding Three Hummock Island to my holiday destination list!! Can't wait to see all this fabulous island has to offer... and meet the chickens of course ;)

  2. What an absolutely gorgeous island. We're so lucky in Australia to have these kinds of places to visit...I must tell my o/s friends about this - they won't believe the idea of having your own island to yourself for a few days, and at a comparatively very reasonable cost. The transportation costs are a bit exorbitant though: not the flying, which is inherently expensive, but the boat. You could make the island more attractive by negotiating a better deal on the boat trip I think.
