Goat Island, Tasmania


Goat Island 4

Located between Penguin and Ulverstone on Tasmania’s north coast, Goat Island which you can walk to at low tide, is part of the heritage listed Three sisters – Goat Island Nature Reserve and as such there are no dogs allowed which meant Chika had to sit this one out.

We found it to be a great place to spend a couple of hours. Whether it’s fishing or as we did fossicking around the island. On the far side of the island we found a great rock pool ideal for a dip. Locals have since informed us the rock pool is known as the “Fish Trap” and is worth throwing a line in.

Despite the islands ruggedness, with a bit of care and common sense it’s a relatively easy climb to the top of or around the island.

Like so many places along the north coast Goat Island is home to a breeding colony of Fairy (Little) Penguins which is worth keeping in mind as you explore the island. Goat Island easily overlooked but definitely worth checking out if the tide’s right.
