Art at Picnic Island

Patricia Piccinini

Australia’s best known sculpture artist, Patricia Piccinini is our occasional artist in residence on Picnic Island.

Over the coming year she (along with husband, artist Peter Hennessey) will be creating a new body of environmental sculpture work around the island.

For indoors, local Tasmanian artists, Mel Hills and Dane Chisholm have provided us with an eclectic collection of their works inspired by the local environment. The works are available for purchase and commissions are also possible.


Our furniture and fit out has been put together by a team of skilled local craftsman, such as award winning designer Jackson Wells, to provide you with a truly authentic experience.

If you can pull yourself away from the view we have a small reference library of books covering topics such as local art, history, birds, sealife and all things maritime.
