Live out your Robinson Crusoe fantasies on this uninhabited Australian island off the coast of Tasmania.
Ninth Island is one of 5,000 or so islets in the Bass Strait between Melbourne and Tasmania and stretches over 16 hectares. It is home to wild animals including penguins, dolphins, seals and native birds, and is only accessible via a short helicopter ride from the mainland, some 12km away.
Aside from a small fishing shack, there’s currently no infrastructure on the island – listed freehold for $1.98m AUD. It’s being pitched as an investment opportunity or eco-tourism destination by agent Peter Huang, of Yong Real Estate with the opportunity to build an off-grid island villa.
