Satellite Island Adventure
Fire up your creativity, join Sarah Glover, Luisa Brimble & Jardine Hansen of Jardine Botanic for a 2-night adventure on Satellite Island. You will get to photograph food, flowers and gathering in an island named no. 2 in the UK Harpers Bazaar’s list of the World’s Best Private Islands.
Whether you're looking to escape frantic city life or yearning for adventure, Satellite Island is the perfect combination of relaxing hideaway and untamed Tasmanian wilderness. This combined with a private chef cooking on an open fire, a photographer to help you capture it all and a florists who will provide us with floral goodness… this adventure will truly be unique experience.
We will re-create the scene we photographed for the WILD Cookbook created by Sarah Glover. This adventure will get you either taking part or photographing story after story, scene by scene. A bonfire on the top of the island at sunset; a long lunch at the Boathouse on the water’s edge; cooking freshly caught fish over a fire on the pebble beach; beach combing for sea treasures along the rock shelf walk; fishing at dusk off the jetty; shucking wild oysters straight from the sea; diving for urchin, abalone and mussels; watching the sunset across the Southern Ocean at Last Glimpse Point; watching the sunrise over nearby Bruny Island; lying on a sun lounge on the water’s edge with a book and just the sound of the sea and surrounded by the Tasmanian wilderness. We will show you how to tell stories though photography, fill up your cameras with beautiful scenes and to hopefully inspire you to capture the beauty in your own daily life back at home.

OUR ADVENTURE HOSTS
Sarah started cooking professionally at 16 years of age. She completed a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery and then worked in every area of the kitchen, front of house, waitressing, peeling potatoes, grilling, washing dishes, you name it, she did it! Over the years she helped open and design menus for a few restaurants/cafes in Sydney, Gold Coast and New York City. When she moved to Sydney in 2009, after a spell working for Quicksilver in visual merchandising, she started a cookie company called Bondi Bikkies. This soon became her full time career. She had her own bikkie store in Bondi Beach and took it over to NYC. Sarah still runs the wholesale business in Australia. She's recently living in Tasmania to obtain her Certificate III in Pastry Marking and she's now a qualified pasty chef. For Sarah, cooking has always involved people and her heart, she love the idea of making someone something they can experience and find joy in. She's obsessed with flavours, textures and creating from a place of inspiration.
Luisa is a food and lifestyle photographer whose distinct photography style has been featured in a variety of print and online publications including Kinfolk Magazine, Frankie Magazine, Cereal Magazine, The Simple Things Magazine, Broadsheet Sydney and The Design Files. In the past couple of years Luisa has photographed several book titles including 'Community' Salad Recipes from Arthur Street Kitchen by Hetty McKinnon (Plum/Pan McMillan); 'Neighbourhood' Salads, Sweets and Stories from Home and Abroad by Hetty McKinnon (Plum/Pan McMillan); 'Amina's Home Cooking' by Amina Elshafei (Lantern/Penguin Books), Women's Weekly 'Real Food' (Bauer Media). When not photographing, she collaborates with other creatives to conduct lifestyle & food photography adventure workshops.
Jardine Hansen of Jardine Botanic
An ardent love of plants and flowers began in Jardine's childhood, wandering through rambling gardens with her grandmother, mispronouncing botanical names. She revels in creating loose arrangements which retain the sense of spontaneity and romance found in the garden. Her work is layered and textured, using interesting botanical specimens and favouring locally grown flowers and foliages for their seasonal beauty.
Jardine offers floral styling for weddings, events, corporate spaces and private homes by appointment in Sydney and Hobart.

GETTING TO SATELLITE ISLAND
Satellite Island is a scenic drive south of Hobart along a road that winds in and out of tiny inlets and quaint coastal towns.
BY CAR VIA BRUNY ISLAND
Satellite Island is approximately an hour and a half from Hobart. Head to the lovely coastal town of Kettering and catch the ferry across to stunning Bruny Island.
Drive the stretch of road exploring beautiful North Bruny Island stopping off on your way to pick up local gourmet treats from Bruny Island’s array of fabulous produce. Stop for oysters at Get Shucked Oyster Farm and lunch and a cheese tasting at the Bruny Island Cheese Factory. Climb the stairs at the Neck for stunning views of the isthmus between North and South Bruny, Adventure Bay and Great Bay, before arriving at the tiny town of Alonnah. The Island Keeper will be waiting to greet you at the Alonnah jetty and take you across to Satellite Island. The boat trip to the Island is only 5 minutes across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
Satellite Island is the perfect base for exploring Bruny Island and its many walks and activities. By day explore the treasures of Bruny Island and in the afternoon return to your own island paradise.
