Personalised Tour Packages

Tasmania’s unique concept in touring...travel together...stay together...tour together

Steele’s Island Retreat has introduced a new and unique concept of touring in Southern Tasmania.

The retreat is proud to offer an all inclusive and personalised 'touring holiday' for groups who wish to travel and stay together in a spacious, warm, welcoming and homely atmosphere on their very own serene and secluded, private island!  Alternatively, couples or small groups can be combined with others to form a larger group. This would also provide an opportunity for guests to meet and tour with other travelers and benefit from group concessions. Groups can select our ‘general interest’ tour package or elect to have a package personalised according to their destination preferences.

Guests can experience the wonderful indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as the natural bush, beach and river surroundings of the Island, with members of their group only.

All of the ‘three to ten day’ tour packages have one all-inclusive cost to make planning easier for guests.  This covers:

  • first class accommodation at the beautiful, natural retreat

  • all meals:  breakfast and dinner in the homestead, and morning and afternoon tea and gourmet lunches whilst touring

  • a customised tour itinerary, consisting of an assisted pre-selection of day tours, fully planned and organised by resort staff on behalf of guests

  • transport by retreat coach to and from selected tour locations each day

  • excellent, personal service provided by warm, friendly and unobtrusive staff

All of the inclusive three to ten day packages (exclusive of airfares) include double or twin-share accommodation, a pre-selection of day tours from our customized options, or a personalised itinerary, all costs associated with tourist attractions, and all meals including delicious morning and afternoon teas and gourmet lunches whilst touring.  They also include the cost of the resort coach, which will leave from the front door each day, providing direct transport to the attraction, or transfer to pick up points (in the case of joining larger guided tours) and return at the end of the day.

Guests set out each morning after a hearty breakfast cooked in the delightful country kitchen and return each afternoon to relax and refresh with a drink and hors d’oeuvres, or have a spa or sauna, before enjoying a sumptuous dinner on the deck overlooking the beautiful Carlton River and Carlton Beach or indoors by the crackling log fire! 

Some of our 'general interest' tours are as follows:

The resort also offers additional customised itineraries to suit common interest groups, such as sports groups, hobby groups, etc., as well as  ‘pampering packages’ that are ideal for the busy executives or groups needing time out, such as:

  • Heritage Tours

  • Adventure and Thrill Seeking Tour

  • Relaxation and Rejuvenation Tours

  • Environmental and Wilderness Tours ‘Wine and Dine’Tours

  • Sport and Recreational Tours

Guests may elect to spend ‘travel free’ days simply enjoying the Island and its facilities.

In the case of guests planning to continue their touring of Tasmania, beyond the south, transport to that location can be arranged.
